From back of book:
A REAL NAIL-BITER.......
"No one writes about New Orleans, its steamy charms and its seamy sins, as well as Ms. Smith. She catches the tricky nuances of Louisiana speech as well as the sights, smells, and sounds of the Delta City."
.....Dallas Morning News
" A real nail biter....This is as rich as a good gumbo--the city and it's people are lovingly detailed...and the plotting is foolproof and tight. In short, you want this book"The Washington Times
Skip's nemesis comes to New Orleans again causing great terror to all he touches.
There is a national movement called The Jury that has arrived out of nowhere, hides behind a veil of secrecy, and is attracting the attention of many good people who are covertly cheering them on. Who is this group? Ostensibly, they are a group of citizens concerned that the justice system in America is letting too many guilty people go free. Rather than sit idly by, they intend to do something about it. Their first act of vigilante justice is to kill an OJ like sports figure who was found not guilty of murdering his wife. The public felt that the man bought his innocent verdict and that justice was finally served.
In New Orleans, a corrupt white police superintendent resigns and is replaced by an honest black man. The people have hope that the wide spread corruption will be swept away by the new top cop. Instead, the man is gunned down by a supremacist, who loathes the idea of a black running the police department. When the police, including Detective Skip Langdon, arrest the perp, The Jury assassinates him. Skip smells the evil odor of her old enemy, the psychopathic Errol Jacomine, as the mastermind behind The Jury. In a cat and mouse game where the stakes are Skip's life, the officer and the criminal must enter the other's head if they expect to win the fight.
