New Orleans, LA
2016 International Ebook Awards Silver Medal Winner
Detective ‘Cadillac’ Holland left a career as an intelligence operative to join the Louisiana State Patrol in order to find the solution to his father’s disappearance in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Four years have passed and that case has gone cold. Now his sister wants him to prove that a pit bull is the murder weapon and not the murderer of New Orleans’ most notorious criminal.
The investigation leads to far more things than NOPD’s Chief of Detectives ever imagined possible when he approved the investigation. The dog’s tracks lead to the adoptive parents of the murder victim’s son, the victim’s street-wise fiancée, and a bodyguard with too many secrets. Detective Holland also discovers Federal investigations into a rap music label and of a storage locker’s worth of missing firearms, the link between his canine suspect and a dog fighting ring, and even uncover the blackmailing of a famous Hollywood actress. Most surprising of all are the unexpected clues Detective Holland finds to his own cold case.
It seems everyone has a secret in post-Katrina New Orleans and Detective Holland has his hands full looking for a solution which will keep his promise to “reach a conclusion in line with everyone’s perception of justice.”
