Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
The FIFTH funny, offbeat, and surprising legal thriller in the Tubby Dubonnet series.

“Take one cup of Raymond Chandler, one cup of Tennessee Williams, add a quart of salty humor, and you will get something resembling Dunbar’s crazy mixture of crime and offbeat comedy.” -The Baltimore Sun

CORRUPTION, MURDER, AND A REALLY GREAT PO’BOY…

A New Orleans lawyer who'd rather eat, drink, and swap stories than get caught in court, Tubby Dubonnet can't forget the last words that escaped an old friend's lips, and he can't get out of the way of a political campaign that's turning rough. Obsessed with the idea that a shadowy crime boss may be pulling the strings that have cost good people their lives, Tubby is entering into a test of courage with the most violent men in New Orleans. And if that weren't dangerous enough, he’s just picked up the worst ally he could ever find: a beautiful prostitute gunning for revenge.

A funny-hard-boiled mystery with as many laughs as chills.

“Dunbar has an excellent ear for dialogue … His stylish take on Big Easy lowlife is reminiscent of the best of Donald Westlake and Elmore Leonard.” -Booklist

“Dunbar revels in the raffish charm and humor of his famously rambunctious city.” -The New York Times Book Review

“…Subtly wry humor, stylish writing, and authentic New Orleans flavor…” -The New Orleans Times-Picayune
Amazon.com Review
Tubby Dubonnet, the raffish, slightly bemused Big Easy lawyer is back in another spicy bayou stew of Southern damsels in distress and sleazy New Orleans politicians. Tubby's about to become a grandfather, but it's no standard midlife crisis that has him sipping a few too many old-fashioneds and letting his practice languish. He's depressed by the death of his best friend in a shootout for which he feels responsible, and he's determined to find the killers and make them pay for their crime. The trail leads to a corrupt sheriff, a hooker with the proverbial golden heart, and a mother-loving murderer. While Tubby sets up a sting to reel the bad guys in--a worthless franchise for a women's boxing league--he also helps out an old friend's reelection campaign. As usual, Tony Dunbar covers local politics with his trademarked waggish humor. The crayfish boil featuring an out-of-control float, complete with a massacre by three Vietnamese waiters bent on their own vengeance, is worth its weight in fake jewels--which, incidentally, also figure in the plot. Elmore Leonard and Carl Hiaasen fans will see the ending coming, but it won't matter a bit. And faithful series readers will delight in Tubby's sixth wacky adventure. --Jane Adams
