Claire DeWitt and the City of the Dead
Claire DeWitt is not your average private investigator. She has a brilliant mind and great detective skills but Claire also uses dreams, drugs and Détection—a detective manual written by mysterious French detective Jacques Silette—to find answers in her investigations. She has returned to New Orleans—a thing she has avoided since the murder of her mentor--to investigate the disappearance of prosecuter Vic Willing, known for his skill in winning convictions for homicides.
Gritty depictions of post-Katrina New Orleans mix with glimpses of Claire’s Brooklyn origins to provide a unique backdrop to this offbeat and hip female sleuth with a dark side. Readers will be happy to know that it is the beginning of a new series.
