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.

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.

Sexy. Intriguing. Easy. Eli Boudreaux's family has built ships and boats in Louisiana for generations. He comes from a hardworking, wealthy family, and his empire is growing by leaps and bounds. At 30 he is the youngest CEO ever to head Bayou Enterprises, cochairing with his eldest brother. His head for business and his no-nonsense work ethic are also quickly making him the best the company has seen in generations. His staff admires him, women adore him, and Eli's family is solid.

I am a die hard Sebastian York fan. I will listen to books just because he is the narrator. When I saw him and New Orleans (my favorite place) together I was thrilled!! And while his voice is still perfect, I hope he never utters the words Chere or Bebe again! You can not play a southern Louisiana man without a drawl! I still love him, but that was like nails on a chalk board horrible. To make it worse the female narrator tried (and failed) at the accent. This lead to a pretty bad disconnect between the two parts. Next time you need a Louisiana character, get Brian Troxel, he is amazing!

As for the book...sigh, lackluster, predictable, and at times just bad. The theme of domestic violence and rape were way to lightly thrown around which made the plot seem forced. Characters were far underdeveloped, one demential and average. All that said, if Sebastian York could have pulled off the accent, it would not have hated it.
