I tried this book but found that it was not catching my attention after 76 pages so I decided to bury it in the snow! Didn't really like the characters after that time so it was time to deep six this book and move on to another mystery that was more worthy of my time and effort.

Maybe I picked the wrong book in the series, but this was underwhelming. There were lots of plot holes. I didn't find its portion in New Orleans convincing.

First 50 pages were terrific. Reminder me a lot of Gilles Blunt. Then it started going downhill and never recovered. Few of the next 150 pages involved the crime(s), focusing instead on the characters and their emotional dealings with the investigation, and each other. The author also has this annoying - to me - of having his characters frequently performing soliloquies, as if this is supposed to be very realistic. Many people like these, but if you're looking for a good police procedural, mystery, I'd suggest look elsewhere

This was my first time to read this author. He is an excellent writer, and is very good at creating realistic tension in a scene. This is the first book in a while that I didn't want to put down. However, while the ending was Well written and the suspect revealed surprised me, it didn't make a lot of sense to me. It is still worth reading.
