A Good Read: Mystery Novel with a New Orleans as a backdop.
on 7 September 1998
A good read, would make a great Noir Film. Doesn't pound you over the head with New Orleans items, just a backdrop, but anyone familar with The City, will get all the locations, food, bars, etc. This was Tony Dunbar's first novel and while the cover(paperback)refers to him as reminiscent of Donald Westlake and Elmore Lenoard; other than some characters that could turn up in either's books, Dunbar has a style of his own style. Makes you anxious to read the next novel in the series.
