From the Inside Flap:

"Memorable...Compelling."
LOS ANGELES TIMES
P.I. Terry Manion is just out of rehab when he hears that his mentor in the gumshoe game, J.J. Legendre, has been been found with his brains blown out. Manion doesn't believe it's suicide, but finding the truth is a tricky business in the Big Easy, where those connected with J.J. are rapidly becoming an endangered species. With the help of his close friend, Nadia Wells--an ex-madam turned shamus--Manion's ready to kick some butt. But a Cajun killing machine named Croaker is challenging Manion to a showdown deep in the Southern swamps....
