In the jazzy, sultry New Orleans tradition of James Lee Burke, Penn Williamson takes a grisly look at the depraved underbelly of a town where the oldest secrets are often the dirtiest. The year is 1927, and the Big Easy is abuzz at the gruesome death of Charles St. Claire. The evidence points to St. Claire's widow, glamorous movie actress Remy Lelourie. Handsome police detective Damon Rourke is as ready to believe her guilt as everyone else-even if she is his former lover. The only trouble is that Rourke has an obsession with finding the truth, and the truth in this case is tangled up in family ties that go back generations. Penn Williamson weaves an intricate mystery that sifts through the layers of lies in a place that buries its secrets far deeper than it buries its dead. Jack Garrett's powerful narration leads listeners through all the unusual twists and turns of the city that care forgot.
