This Edgar Award-winning work offers a revealing glimpse into the hidden world of New Orleans high society and an intricately plotted murder mystery. The novel introduces rookie cop Skip Langdon, as she investigates a seamy Mardi Gras murder.

Everyone in town is shocked when Chauncey St. Amant, a prominent citizen and this year's King of Carnival, is killed on his parade float by a shooter in a Dolly Parton get-up. Skip Langdon is assigned the case because of her own upper-crust background. Skip's investigation takes her deep into the Garden District to dig up the St. Amant family skeletons and a dangerous ancient secret.

Julie Smith, who was a reporter at the New Orleans Times-Picayune, writes with authority about the Big Easy, and Cristine McMurdo-Wallis' performance puts you on the streets of the French Quarter at Skip Langdon's side. Wallis' dramatic delivery breathes life into the novel's menagerie of exotic characters, enhancing the intense psychological drama.

    " A well written mystery. I can see why it won an Edgar award. It's a bit sad reading about the pre-Katrina New Orleans. I didn't like the ending which is why this isn't 5 stars. "

    " I was expecting more from this book because I knew it had won the Edgar Award. I gave it 4 stars just in case the 3 I wanted to give it was misguided by over expectations. It a good mystery, but I was hoping for Great and didn't get it. But don't let my judgment prevent you from trying it, I also don't agree with 8 out of 10 Pulitzer Prise winning selections. "

    " I just returned from a trip to New Orleans, so maybe I'm being a little biased because I love reading about places I've visited, but I loved this book. Well...Most of it...there were awkward moments (grown up love stuff), but having an insiders view of NOLA social strata was fun. The storyline was interesting and full of surprises and I really was kept guessing until the end. Great retro read. "

    " I heard Julie Smith interviewed on NPR recently and enjoyed that and anything to do with NOLA is on my list of things to read. I'm looking forward to getting to know Skip Langdon better now too! "
