Summary

Nothing is easy in The Big Easy

PI Jake Longly and Nicole Jamison head to New Orleans at the behest of Nicole's uncle, movie producer Charles Balfour, when his megastar, A-list actor Kirk Ford, awakens in his hotel bed with the body of Kristi Guidry, a local college coed. Ford, in the Big Easy for a location shoot, remembers little of the evening and nothing of the murder. And, to make matters worse, Kristi is the niece of a local mafioso-type who will do whatever is necessary to avenge her death. Balfour is losing money every day the filming is stalled - he needs his actor cleared, and quickly.

Surrounded by glitzy Hollywood stars and intimidated by seedy underworld characters, Jake and Nicole encounter nothing but obstacles. Something isn't right. The facts don't fit. Who would want Kristi dead? Why frame Kirk for the murder? Everyone has an opinion, including Kristi's friends and ex-boyfriend, the local homicide detectives, and a fortune-teller. The clock is ticking as Jake and Nicole struggle to decipher who's lying, who's telling the truth, and exactly who schemed to murder Kristi Guidry. Nothing is easy in The Big Easy.

Very entertaining, good narration

This is the second book in the series. This story has good suspense blended with a variety of very likable characters and some fun and humor. This book is set in New Orleans which gives nice flavor. I enjoy the writing, and the pace of the story. The narration is very good for most of the voices.

Longly and Pancake in NOLA

Color me happy any time there’s a NOLA setting. Since I’m happy any time I read the work of Dp Lyle, this was win-win. If you wake up beside a dead body in a locked room, are you the killer? Even if you’re in NOLA, that’s a not good. If you give this book a try, you’ll be very glad you did. As a matter of fact, pick up any of the Jake Longly series and you’ll really be glad you did. DO Lyle also narrated this title. Who knows the character better than he?
