This is a collection of short stories. That said it is a little tough to rate/review as it is technically several different pieces in one collection. The stores are entertaining, move well, and the characters are fun if at times predictable. Having family from Louisiana and being a frequent visitor to New Orleans which is a cultural second home, I bought this book because of the setting. Nola is a perfect setting, exotic, old, devil may care and Denoux does it very very well. Only criticisms are his tendency to get too far into the erotica end of the spectrum for my taste and that because this is a collection of shorts you end up reading the repetitive character development lines over and over again in each story so it gets a bit redundant that the main doesn't wear hats and why, that he served in Europe in the war and where, etc. otherwise it's completely entertaining which is the point of this genre.

I just did not care for most of the stories, and honestly, I didn't finish this book because I found many parts to be offensive.

I have to thank a Louisiana State Trooper for alerting me to this book, which has just about everything that'll please a woman reader like me.

If you're in a maternal mood, then private detective Lucien Caye is very good with kids, working cases for them pro-bono. If you're in a frisky mood, then this is definitely your kind of man. Lucien is a turn-on as he helps women with their problems in more ways than one. If you're in the mood for a good detective story, check out "Hard Rain," a genuine murder mystery. If you're in the mood for a little romance, there's "Expect Consequences."

I'm sure men will see Lucien Caye as a man's man, but I really think he's a woman's man. These stories seem to have everything: mystery, intrigue, sex, violence, love, even swamp monsters.

It is a great book about New Orleans.
