Publisher's Summary

Edgar Award-winning author Julie Smith's sequel to New Orleans Mourning follows the rising career of police officer Skip Langdon. Recently promoted to detective, she finds herself chasing a killer who is preying on members of New Orleans' various 12-step programs.

A murderer is on the loose in the Big Easy claiming to be the Axeman, a serial killer who stalked the city 70 years before. The only link between the victims is that they belonged to self-help groups. But the anonymity that protects their participants is now hiding the identity of a killer. Skip is sent undercover to the most likely of the programs, only to discover that she has more in common with its members than she ever imagined. And in a group of people who admit to being mentally unhealthy, she suddenly has more suspects than she knows what to do with.

Cristine McMurdo-Wallis' sublime narration transports listeners to the colorful streets of New Orleans with the tough yet funny Skip.

    "A classic who done it in the south."

    If you enjoy 'The Help' or any of the Sookie Stackhouse books, you will enjoy this.
    A good murder plot set in New Orleans.

    "Darn!"

    I loved the author's other book "New Orleans Mourning" which is a love ode and guide book to the city of New Orleans and a very good detective mystery. This book has its moments but the author's obsession with twelve step programs bored me to tears. Skip the chapter on the programs and you may have fun trying to guess murderer and motive.
