Publisher's Summary

This exciting addition to The Gary Graybill Murder Mystery series is a good old fashioned who-done-it that takes you through the streets and houses of the French Quarter in the party capital of America, New Orleans. Follow along with Detective Lieutenant James "Gator" McNeal and his team as they race against time to stop a mysterious hitman, known only as Lo Spettro, who has come to New Orleans. He has already killed once and he's going to kill again - and this time his target is Gator! The race is on! Will Gator get the killer before the killer gets him? You'll love the twists and turns in the thrilling story. But you'll have to pay attention and wait for the final twist in the final chapter - when all is revealed.

Great southern "who done it" mystery book

I ended up listening to this one first.....I missed that it had a first book "French Quarter Vendetta". This one does stand alone though so I wasn't confused and the story made sense. I loved all the nicknames they gave such as Cher, Cuz, etc....true to the New Orleans style. I thought some of the story didn't need to be there....just kind of took you off track and then back again. However, it just added to the story to show how they were working on other things besides that case and showed the laid back, slower lifestyle the New Orleans people have. Overall, the story line and characters were really entertaining and it was a good detective mystery.

The narrator, Theo Holland, did a great job creating the character voices and I think his style added a wonderful compliment to the writing. I loved listening to him especially when he was using all the nicknames and he really brought the characters to life and showed the playful, yet serious sides of them all. I will be going back and listening to the first one now.
