The NEW edition of NEW ORLEANS CONFIDENTIAL is RELEASED. It has eleven stories including “Too Wise” – winner of The Short Mystery Fiction Society’s DERRINGER Award for Best Novelette and “The Heart Has Reasons” – winner of The Private Eye Writers of America’s SHAMUS Award for Best Short Story. PUBLISHERS WEEKLY said the following about NEW ORLEANS CONFIDENTIAL - “Former homicide detective De Noux turns out an engaging, fast-paced collection of stories featuring private eye and womanizer extraordinaire Lucien Caye as he tracks philandering husbands, possible murderers and missing cats. Set predominantly against the rich backdrop of 1940s New Orleans, these stories-abounding with ample bosoms and willing women-are fun, and the author knows his stuff when it comes to the Big Easy.”
We corrected the typos from the previous edition and added a new cover (this is the actual building which housed Lucien Caye's office and upstairs apartment at the corner of Barracks and Dauphine Streets in the lower French Quarter). If you like private-eye stories set in the 1940s you may want to check this out.
