This was a convoluted murder mystery that was fascinating since at no point could I figure out where the storyline was going. Totally kept me guessing right up until the last chapter.
A dead anesthesiologist, a missing mom, a malpractice lawsuit, a disenfranchised lawyer, a semi-corrupt (or just stupid) cop, a cheating husband, a recently divorced reporter, 4 or 5 suspicious hospital workers and a chatty waitress in a small town.
Yup it sounds screwy but somehow it works...in addition to all that there is even some romance
John Robicheaux lived the simple life in Cajun country - that was until his brother turned up dead in the bayou. He's be damned before he'd let that crime go unpunished. And John's suspicions about the sudden death were pointing to a medical clinic and a powerful plastic surgeon who stood accused of "losing" a high-profile client on the operating table.
Local magazine reporter Cassie Havelin had been in Beau Pierre to look into the story. But when her investigation became entangled with her mother's disappearance, Cassie was thrown straight into the strong arms of John Robicheaux. Together they had to shadow a sinister killer slithering in the murky waters...unless they were consumed by the darkness first.
