Nola Cespedes, an ambitious young reporter at the Times-Picayune, finally catches a break: an assignment to write her first full-length feature. While investigating her story, she also becomes fixated on the search for a missing tourist in the French Quarter. As Nola's work leads her into a violent criminal underworld, she's forced to face disturbing truths from her own past. Vividly rendered in razor-sharp prose, this haunting thriller is a riveting journey of trust betrayed - and the courageous struggle to rebuild. Fast-paced, atmospheric, and with a knockout twist, Joy Castro's Hell or High Water features an unforgettable heroine as fascinating and multi-layered as New Orleans itself.

"Sometimes an audiobook narrator must be a juggler, and this book presents such a situation. Roxanne Hernandez deftly handles this evocative and sometimes creepy thriller, which combines a young New Orleans-based reporter's search for registered sex offenders who disappeared after Hurricane Katrina with her efforts to locate a missing tourist. Hernandez paces the book well, a particularly critical requirement when the material itself can be unsettling and some of the characters seem especially unsavory or less than credible. The glue that holds the story together is Hernandez's nuanced presentation of reporter Nola Cespedes, whose intriguing and intense personality dominates the novel and allows the listener to focus on a story that otherwise might not be nearly as compelling.
