New Orleans Confidential
NEW ORLEANS CONFIDENTIAL is a series of eleven short stories. Come prowl the lonely, sometimes violent streets of American’s most exotic city, the city that care forgot, New Orleans in the 1940s, with a lone-wolf private eye named Lucien Caye. Women float in and out of Caye’s life, like the alluring brunette who wants him to bodyguard her while she poses for sexy pictures and the long, cool blonde seeking to discover the secret of the “red witch” living down the street from Caye, a woman calling herself a love sorceress. Murder is often the name of the game in pursuit of the truth. Unfortunately, the truth is often ugly, often dangerous and usually resides on the loneliest part of town.
NEW ORLEANS CONFIDENTIAL includes two award-winning stories: “Too Wise” – The Short Mystery Fiction Society’s DERRINGER Award for Best Novelette and “The Heart Has Reasons” – The Private Eye Writers of America’s SHAMUS Award for Best Short Story. STORIES INCLUDE: “St. Expedite”, “The Iberville Mistress”, “Christmas Weather”, “Erotophobia”, “Friscoville” “Lair of the Red Witch”, “Kissable Cleavage”, “Hard Rain" and Expect Consequences”.
