Edgar Award-winning author Julie Smith's sequel to New Orleans Mourning follows the rising career of police officer Skip Langdon. Recently promoted to detective, she finds herself chasing a killer who is preying on members of New Orleans' various 12-step programs.

A murderer is on the loose in the Big Easy claiming to be the Axeman, a serial killer who stalked the city 70 years before. The only link between the victims is that they belonged to self-help groups. But the anonymity that protects their participants is now hiding the identity of a killer. Skip is sent undercover to the most likely of the programs, only to discover that she has more in common with its members than she ever imagined. And in a group of people who admit to being mentally unhealthy, she suddenly has more suspects than she knows what to do with.

Cristine McMurdo-Wallis' sublime narration transports listeners to the colorful streets of New Orleans with the tough yet funny Skip. Download and start listening now!

    " Not as interesting as the first book in the series. This was an ok police procedural this time but was lacking the New Orleans color and over the top, but somehow believable, characters and secret world of the first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris Burland | 3/20/2013

    " Not as good as the first, too much about the self-improvement groupies "

    " I really like the Skip Langdon books written by Julie Smith. Skip is a police officer in New Orleans and is usually investigating a murder. Ms. Smith's writing is very easy to read. "

    " Another one of those books that I bought more than once. But, worse than that, I didn't even recognize that I had already read it until I has about halfway through. "

    " This is the second book in theSkip Langdon series. Good mystery, I couldn't figure it out until I was 2/3 through the book. I like Skip, she is vunerable, trying to figure out how to be a good detective and deal with her family and her place in New Orleans "

    " I enjoyed New Orleans Mourning much more. I really thought the author couldn't figure out who did it until the last minute. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandy Neal | 12/10/2010

    " Mystery about a serial killer in New Orleans. Copycat of an old murderer. Various reasons people attend the 12-step programs analyzed within the mystery. Weak story line in this one. "
