A housewife is the target of a dreadful well-organized killing. Could they have killed the wrong woman? The police think so—
Ride along with the New Orleans Police Department as the officer’s work together to solve unusual happenings in this unique, historic city.
You’ll meet Zack Nelson, a former police officer, now living in a retirement center. Zack still got a lot of detective in him and senses that something is wrong with all the supposedly natural deaths happening, not only to his family but with the older folks seemingly in good health. He works with the police to help untangle and solve several ongoing crimes that seem to surround and affect him.
Along with his new roommate Dave, and two engaging sisters, Pearl Ann and Emma Lou (genteel Southern women), the foursome are involved with touring New Orleans, getting involved in social events, tasting a fantastic array of New Orleans food and drink, participating in shoot-outs, and creating a few hijinks of their own.
This fast-paced thriller is filled with mystery, humor, international black-market sales, Southern charm, and characters you won’t soon forget. You’ll visit the French Quarter, the Garden District, the Warehouse District, and be a guest at an unusual funeral held in a true New Orleans custom.
This is the first book of five in the True Blue Detective series. The author, Vito Zuppardo, is a resident and New Orleans expert who helps create a visual tour through the Crescent City that makes it come alive for the reader.
