The Louisiana Bayous
He wiped the hot sweat from his forehead with the back of his hand but forgot that his hand was sealed in a latex glove.
Dr. Nick Polchak is called to New Orleans just before Hurricane Katrina strikes to be available to recover bodies afterwards. When the work starts, though, some of the bodies tell that tale that they died before the hurricane and somewhere other than the lower 9th ward. Nick is on the case. I liked this book better than CHOP SHOP but not as well as SHOOFLY PIE. That said, I really like Tim Downs' work.
