Blurb: The Saints’ victory in the Super Bowl just prior to the start of Carnival season has everyone in New Orleans floating on Cloud Nine. But for Scotty Bradley, Carnival looks like it’s going to be grim yet again when his estranged cousin Jared—who plays for the Saints—becomes the number one suspect in the murder of his girlfriend, dethroned former Miss Louisiana Tara Bourgeouis. Scotty’s not entirely convinced his cousin isn’t the killer, but when he starts digging around into the homophobic beauty queen’s sordid life, he finds that any number of people wanted her dead. With the help of his friends and family, he plunges deeper and deeper into Tara’s tawdry world of sex tapes, fundamentalist fascists, and mind-boggling secrets—secrets some are willing to kill to keep!
Review: Greg Herren’s mysteries are always fun to read; I am finding that out first hand. I am happy to say that this time Colin stuck around even in the end. Although this time it was Frank who was gone most of the time, but then again he was becoming a damn good wrestler. The amazing Ninja Lesbian’s make another wonderful appearance to save our sexy Scotty. I would definitely recommend reading these books in order.
Well at least it is not Mardi Gras time in this book, but football time. I have to admit that I just don’t get the fascination of football, but at least the guys asses are nice to look at. However for New Orleans the Saints are looking like they are heading to the Superbowl. So Scotty’s family is throwing the party of a lifetime. That is until Jared brought in the nasty Miss Louisiana Tara Bourgeouis, or should I say the ex and dethroned Miss Louisiana. A homophobic bitch who deserved what she got. However it makes Jared the perfect patsy.
Too bad shortly before that another woman, just as homophobic as Tara is shot and killed. However there is a twist to that which might just surprise those of us. It would seem she is not who she says she is or what she is. The gun used just happens to belong to Scotty’s mom and Jared is his cousin so of course he is going to get to the end of this. That is if he lives long enough. Oh I do love some amazing twists.
However I have to admit that when you think about a church that is filled with hate and bigotry, you can guess who the killer is pretty fast, or can you? Now the story rated a five, but the drug use brought it down once more. I mean really a priest using drugs with our characters is not a good add. I would wish for one book that doesn’t have our sexy men using drugs.
Other than that it was pretty damn good and I would definitely recommend it.
