JASS (Private Investigator-New Orleans-1909) – VG
Fulmer, David – 2nd
Harcourt, 2005- Hardcover
Investigator Valentin St. Cyr is asked to look into the deaths of four New Orleans musicians. Although the manor of each death is different, they all once played in the same "jass" band. When St. Cyr is pressured to give up the investigation, he becomes more determined to find the reason, and killer, behind the deaths.
Fulmer has a wonderful style and ability to convey the feeling of New Orleans. St. Cyr is a wonderful character about whom we learn more in this book. There was a twist at the end I didn't see coming and a thread left to be resolved. This is a great series and I am looking forward to his next book.
