The siren call of Storyville...
New Orleans, 1914. No one cares much when a street ****** is the victim of a bloody murder. Nor when a woman in a crib on the dirty back end of the red light district is found slain. But then a third ravaged body turns up in a house along one of the better streets, and an ailing Tom Anderson, the "King of Storyville," reaches out to Creole detective Valentin St. Cyr, who has left the scarlet streets behind. Against his own instincts and his wife Justine's wishes, Valentin heads back onto his old turf and into the investigation that propels The Iron Angel, the fifth novel in the award-winning series by David Fulmer.
“St. Cyr is a great character, and the fascinating city and its larger-than-life denizens intrigue.”
— Publishers Weekly
“Fulmer improves with each outing in this ambience-drenched series, displaying a subtle touch with human relationships, especially those that traverse New Orleans' fluid color line.”
