“I had good intentions. I always do.
My boyfriend/partner, Ralph Dixon, and I eloped—again—with the plan to tie the knot in New Orleans. Instead, Dixon’s sitting in jail for a double murder. I’m sitting in a Louisiana swamp, spying on the Ku Klux Klan with Rip Thigbee, a ghost detective. My bubble-headed cousin Ruth is interrogating the hotel’s chef. My twelve-year-old charge, Lydia LaBeau, dressed as a voodoo queen, is entertaining the locals at Pat O’Brien’s. These are just some of the people I hang out with. They’re all slightly unhinged and extremely odd.
I’m Sydney Lockhart. I solve murders. Most of which I’m the primary suspect.
Mixed yourself a Hurricane and join me in the Big Easy for another historic hotel murder case.”
