From the Publisher
Claire DeWitt is not your average private investigator. She has
brilliant deductive skills and is an ace at discovering evidence.
But Claire also uses her dreams, omens, and mind-expanding herbs to
help her solve mysteries, and relies on Détection - the
only book published by the late, great, and mysterious French
detective Jacques Silette.
The tattooed, pot-smoking Claire has just arrived in post-Katrina
New Orleans, the city she''s avoided since her mentor, Silette''s
student Constance Darling, was murdered there. Claire is
investigating the disappearance of Vic Willing, a prosecutor known
for winning convictions in a homicide- plagued city. Has an angry
criminal enacted revenge on Vic? Or did he use the storm as a means
to disappear? Claire follows the clues, finding old friends and
making new enemies - foremost among them Andray Fairview, a young
gang member who just might hold the key to the mystery.
Littered with memories of Claire''s years as a girl detective in
1980s Brooklyn, Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead is
a knockout start to a bracingly original new series.
