New Orleans, 1914. No one cares much when a street whore 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.
"Fulmer is both a fine plotter and a marvelously evocative writer, with an eye for character." - The Washington Post
