I read Ms. Williamson's book "Wages of Sin" and that was fantastic, so I wanted to read this book. It was not as good as Wages, but it was still good but the text was not always clear. Overall, a great book.
In New Orleans the past is no decaying memory...It is the sins of your father, mother and their mothers and fathers before them---la famille---that are most remembered, not any blessings bestowed... The year is 1927, a time for bootleg gin, hot jazz, and sudden death. The place is a city that inters its dead above ground but keeps its secrets deeply buried.
