(By: Martha Gabour Manuel)

Item # 17

This book is the highly anticipated sequel to Murder on False River, a shooting at the Louisiana State Capitol sends shockwaves through Baton Rouge...and leaves Senator Devereaux's stepson, Dylan, in critical condition.


Not since Governor Huey P. Long has there been a shooting at the capitol, and the already politically charged city is on high alert.  Is there a sinister plot designed to manipulate and take control of the state of Louisiana, and what is in the mysterious missing envelope that triggered the shooting?


When speculation meets actual fact, it's hard to know who to trust or what to believe.  In this fast-paced political thriller, even the ghost of Huey Long is rumored to be roaming the halls of his beloved state capitol at night, searching for answers.
