Edgar Award-winner Julie Smith returns to the bewitching streets of New Orleans with the smartest, sassiest, hippest detective ever-the Baroness Pontalba. Meet the snazziest P.I. in the land. Not by accident does she roam America's jazziest city, New Orleans. By day she is Talba Wallis: smart, sassy, ebony, and a fledgling detective. By night she is the Baroness Pontalba: poet laureate of the city's smoky rooms, matron saint of her town's exotic and multi-colorful café society. Goaded into a day gig by her pushy mom, she finds herself employed by Eddie Valentino, and Talba is plunged into a world of fame, money, and power run amok, hunting a man who seduces teenage black girls and may be making them disappear. At the same time she is haunted by disturbing near-memories. Her forgotten past only emerges when violence enters her life-but not, she learns, for the first time.

Detective Samuel Cooper, "Coop" to all who know him, is the Chief of Police in Gulf Front, Florida, a sleepy little town with nothing to recommend it to tourists save a beautiful beach the locals are happy to keep a secret. Indeed, Chief of Police is quite a title given he is the sole detective on the force. It's a pretty easy gig all and all-in fact, there has never been a serious crime in Gulf Front. Until now. When a young woman's body is found on the shore and an abandoned new Cadillac is found nearby, it causes a furor like nothing the town has ever seen. And that's before they've identified her. She turns out to be the daughter of a Louisiana Senator, and with her passing comes the Feds, the mob, and Agent Shelley Brooke. Things are never going to be the same again.

A Talba Wallis Novel By night the glamorous Baroness de Pontalba, by day New Orleans’ hippest P.I., Talba Wallis is dumbfounded when she can’t do a simple background check on an old friend—Babalu Maya just doesn’t seem to exist on paper. Four days later, she doesn’t exist at all. As Talba threads her way backward through Babalu’s short, difficult life, she finds an intricate pattern of violence and fear, and a shadowy Mr. Big with homicidal intent. Talba butts right into everybody’s business in Clayton, Louisiana, a small town with a big, ugly secret, where being black, mouthy, and smart are the three qualities most likely to get her killed. As she uncovers dark truths, events and people spiral into nasty motion in a story that has more twists and turns than the Mississippi River.
