His name is Lieutenant James McNeal, but everybody calls him "Gator". His reputation as the best homicide detective in New Orleans is about to be tested by the hardest case of his career.
Gator is investigating a murder involving the most beautiful Masquerade Mask ever created, the wealthiest and most powerful family in New Orleans society, a 150-year-old voodoo curse, a million-dollar gold brochette. All mixed with ambition, jealousy, and greed, and set in the excitement, enchanting food, and magnificent music of the charming and mysterious French Quarter.
Follow along as Gator and his team wade through a sea of suspects including: A nephew addicted to drugs and gambling, desperate for money; a voodoo priestess, lusting for fame and power; an ambitious niece anxious to establish her place in high society; a CEO with an agenda of his own; A housekeeper that had suffered years of abuse; and a daughter abandoned at birth and denied an inheritance worth billions. And be careful...more bodies will fall before the end....
See if you can figure out who the real murderer is before Gator solves the case in the final, exciting chapter of The Mardi Gras Death Mask - one of the best old fashioned who-dun-it's of the decade.
