THE LONG COLD


30 years ago, fourteen year old Lenore San Luna was murdered.


Unsolved, her case was long forgotten until her cousin Gina Badalamente, daughter of the boss of the New Orleans Mafia, approaches the one man La Cosa Nostra may tolerate to look into this case – former NOPD homicide detective Dino LaStanza.


The most dangerous private eye in the city turns down the case. His beautiful, wealthy wife Lizette is relieved. He’s tangled with the Mafia in the past and it didn’t end well.


However, when LaStanza learns of the connection between Lenore and his family, he will take on the dangerous, haunting investigation of this long cold murder case.

LATEST BOOK


HOLD ME, BABE


On a lazy spring evening in 1951, two cases arrive at Private Eye Lucien Caye’s office in the New Orleans Lower French Quarter. The first is a murder case already solved by the New Orleans Police Department. The client believes NOPD arrested the wrong man. Yeah. Right. The second case – find who wrote a song recorded by a now defunct record label eleven years ago here in New Orleans, a song that is now a hit. There are royalties.


It is slow, plodding work, sifting through slim leads of a murder case full of deception and misdirection as the song from the second case, How Could You Leave Me, haunts Lucien. When a young, alluring, doe-eyed woman with auburn hair steps into Lucien’s life, trouble soon follows – gunplay, murder, mayhem, lust, maybe even love as Lucien learns why the song’s original title was Hold Me, Babe.
