Andy Broussard, the plump and proud New Orleans medical examiner, obviously loves food. Less apparent to the casual observer is his hatred of murderers. Together with his gorgeous sidekick, psychologist Kit Franklyn, the two make a powerful, although improbable, mystery-solving duo. Among the dead collected in the Big Easy floodwaters after Hurricane Katrina are three nude female bodies, all caught in the same brush tangle, none with water in their lungs. Broussard knows in his ample gut that this was not an act of God, and not the work of Katrina. But Broussard has perhaps the biggest challenge of his colorful career.
The city and all its records are destroyed, practically the entire population is scattered, the police force has no offices, and many of the rank and file (who haven't defected) are homeless. Soon, Broussard and his sidekick are on a dangerous journey through the obscenely damaged city, leading them to a kind of evil that neither of them could imagine.

So glad this series is seeing new light! This book is by far the best, the characters continue to build and grow on me! I am hoping for more installations soon!
And on narration, as a life long southerner, let me just say Brian Troxell is perfection!!! He pulls the accent off flawlessly, the best narrator by far! His addition made a good book one of my favorites, he added 1000% to the quality of the experience.
Stumbled upon this series a couple of weeks ago. Thankfully after they had come out with all the books in the series, so i got to listen to them in order. And it was a joy. Excellent all round.
He was unobtrusive. And gave life to the main characters without seeming forced.
Highly recommend this series. They're all excellent, and all the same reader. So if you like one, you'll like them all. Which is kind of nice as a few series have changed narrators, and it doesn't always work out.
