Book Description:

MURDER IN THE BIG SLEAZY: Destination crime fiction with a heaping dose of Étouffée

A simple man with a refined palate, maverick New Orleans lawyer Tubby Dubonnet has a penchant for fishing, Old Fashioneds, off-track betting, and fighting evil while passing a good time. Passing a good time, of course, includes running from the mob, solving gritty crime lab murder mysteries, thwarting hurricane season bank heists, and a good deal of rubbing elbows with corrupt politicians—all this while answering to a family of beloved women that he just can’t seem to slip anything past… And with each action-packed adventure, you can trust—because this is a Tubby Dubonnet mystery—that these disparate events are intricately intertwined.

A veritable best-of, this murder mystery anthology includes nine of Tubby Dubonnet’s Anthony and Edgar-nominated hard-boiled legal thrillers.

Meet lawyer Tubby Dubonnet. His clients are all renegades from the asylum (aka Orleans Parish), including Darryl Alvarez, the manager of a local nightclub who’s been caught unloading marijuana from a shrimp boat. At their first meeting, Darryl entrusts Tubby with an ordinary-looking blue gym… of money. What could possibly go wrong?

Tubby Dubonnet is bored. Sure, researching licensing law for the new casino will keep trout meunière on the table, but what could be more tedious? (Unless, of course, the client’s dealings are steeped in conspiracy).

Medical lab janitor Cletus Busters is caught red-handed in a restricted area with the frozen head of Dr. Whitney Valentine. Busters won’t say much, except that he’s innocent. Calling Tubby Dubonnet!

To out-of-town kingpin Willie LaRue, Mardi Gras seems the perfect time for a New Orleans heist. Parties, parades, chaos, alcohol – who could be concerned about a little thing like a bank job? Indeed, all might have gone well except for an out-of-season frog-flogger that threatens to flood the French Quarter.

Tubby can’t forget the last words that escaped an old friend’s lips, and he can’t get out of the way of a political campaign that’s turning rough. Obsessed with the idea that a shadowy crime boss may be pulling the strings that have cost good people their lives, Tubby is entering into a test of courage with the most violent men in New Orleans.

It’s a city of sin. And murder is only one of them. So what if Judge Hughes shared a few special moments with Sultana Patel—why is this a matter of public interest? Until the D.A. hatches a plot to ensnare them—and their lawyer Tubby. And what a web they’re ensnared in!

When in the 1970s a young war protester is killed in broad daylight on Canal Street, it appears that his murder will be forgotten. But a youthful Tubby chanced to see it happen, and the tragic event’s haunted him throughout his life. Decades later, Tubby decides to conduct his own investigation. And stirs up a hornets’ nest.

Ex-con Angelo Spooner is trying to start a legit business, but he just can’t catch a break. Just as his healing Holy Water, “Angelo’s Elixir” is about to go upscale, the sticky strands of the Big Sleazy’s tangled web of crime and corruption come running. What’s a law-abiding parolee to do? Hire Tubby Dubonnet, of course!

The set-up alone’s enough to make you believe in the butterfly effect. Two acrobats burglarize a house; a sultan moves into a French Quarter mansion; a Mardi Gras Indian, in the wrong place at the wrong time, is wrongfully arrested; and our hero Tubby Dubonnet comes upon a double murder while paying a social call on the bayou.

Book Description:

A slow-burn romance between an uptight do-gooder attorney and her overindulged playboy boss…

Quinn Taylor prides herself on doing the right thing, a modern-day David taking on the Goliaths of the world. Goliaths such as James Thornhill who’s offering her a job that is almost impossible to refuse.

Playing babysitter and muse to the overindulged CEO is the last thing she wants to do, but with mounting debt making even a cup of coffee a luxury, Quinn’s ready to swallow her pride and get in bed with the devil. Something that, the more time she spends with the man, becomes increasingly enticing.

Newly appointed CEO James Thornhill wants to bring his family’s company into the twenty-first century. Hiring the pesky but dedicated attorney who’s leading an employee revolt against the company is his first order of business. Second order of business will be resisting the prim but fiery Quinn Taylor, who has somehow become utterly indispensable in his life.

But the stakes are too high for either of them to risk an interoffice fling . . . until an unexpected trip to Quinn’s hometown brings a long-denied simmering attraction to a boil. They’ll have to decide what they’re willing to risk and how far they’re willing to fall if love doesn’t conquer all.

Now that her boys are grown and on their own, widow Jen Watson is looking forward to having a whole summer at the family beach house all to herself.

After all these years, it’s no secret that the house her grandmother left to Jen, her father and brother needs more than a little TLC. Jen and her lifelong best friends are up for the job—there’ll be plenty of time for it between long walks on the beach, watching spectacular sunsets during happy hours on the deck and wiggling their toes in the sand.

When her family balks at spending any money on the house and finds out what the property is really worth, all their plans change.

But Jen and her friends are willing to do just about anything to protect Nana’s memories—and create even more, no matter what it takes.

Charlie, a young African-American, has just graduated from the University of Michigan and plans to go on to grad school and a career in architecture.

Book Description:

They said the bunkers would keep us safe from the Flense. They lied.

Three years ago, Finnian Bolles and his fellow apocalypse survivors fled to the safety of Bunker Eight. Three years spent in complete isolation from a devastated world consumed by a humanity-destroying plague. Three years avoiding the terrifying, nearly unstoppable, once-human creatures known as Wraiths.

Now an uninfected stranger appears at their front doorstep with extraordinary claims of a cure and clues to where it might be found: within a rumored twelfth bunker. Problem is, such a place isn’t supposed to exist. With Humanity’s fate resting in the balance, do they risk leaving their own bunker to search for another, possibly succumbing to a fate worse than death?

As disagreement splinters the group and violence breaks out, the horrifying truth begins to emerge about the real cause of the Flense and why it was released into the world. And the one among them who’ll do anything to keep those secrets buried.

Even if it means unleashing the Flense against them.
