You might remember Gary from his other book Why Birds Fall that I published last year. If you enjoyed that thriller/mystery about corruption in the aviation industry, you’re sure to enjoy this one as well. It’s a story about a delightful character, a retired reverend, who visits New Orleans and gets swept up in a murder mystery. The book is populated with a cast of colourful characters and the setting of New Orleans gives the book an exotic flavour. A highly recommended read.
When Reverend Richard Fountain comes across a homeless person breathing his last after a vicious attack, his visit to New Orleans takes a disturbing turn. Realising the dying man may not be what he seems, Fountain makes enquiries of various colourful New Orleans’ characters.
Though warned to leave the investigations to the police, the Reverend sets about uncovering the truth himself. But nothing is as it appears in New Orleans. Even dead men can hide behind a masquerade of deception and intrigue.
What Readers are Saying
“A huge fan of Kreigh after his first suspense novel, Why Birds Fall, I was not disappointed. His captivating storytelling pulls you into a riveting plot that keeps you engaged until the very end.” Debbie Henson.
“This is a richly detailed mystery with a twisting plot and many colourful characters. New Orleans, with its vibrant streets, clubs and restaurants, takes centre stage and the sparring of the Reverend Fountain and his friend Charles makes for an entertaining read.” Barbara Scott Emmett, author of Delirium: The Rimbaud Delusion
