Tony Boudreaux's charm felt a trifle threadbare this time around, but the mystery was well-crafted, and I found his sidekick, Jack, oddly charming in his gregariousness and fretful gullibility. I'm not sure I'd want to share a hotel room with someone who throws his empties on the floor and snores like a phlegmatic weedeater, but he was there when it counted, and I found that refreshing.

I thought the premise was ok (PI hired to look for a misssing man in Louisiana). I thought the culture was probably accurate (I've only been there once.) I just never warmed up to the characters. I thought they should have more depth and likeability. It wasn't suspenseful as I think the author was trying for, it was more predictable.

Quick read, all of these are a just something quick and easy short reads.

read it along time ago but could not put it down. it was great. i plan on getting the rest
