Cajun Nights

(1988)
(The first book in the Andy Broussard & Kit Franklyn Mystery series)
A novel by

 
 
A "suspenseful . . . welcome debut" mystery set in New Orleans (The Washington Post Book World).

When a disturbing series of murder-suicides terrorizes the Big Easy, young NOPD criminal psychologist Kit Franklyn is eager to take the case and prove her mettle. She discovers some bizarre connections between the perpetrators: They all share the same blood type, drive old cars, and reportedly hummed a nursery rhyme before committing their grisly acts.

As she uncovers the scope of the crimes, Franklyn turns to Andy Broussard, the chief medical examiner whose love of the truth is matched only by his love of New Orleans cuisine. Together, they follow a dangerous trail that leads into the Crescent City's dark past, and an old Cajun curse that seems to have returned with a vengeance. Now Broussard and Franklyn need to fight off some very bad juju, or their partnership may end before it begins.

This first mystery featuring Broussard and Franklyn is a "fast-paced thriller" that "won't be easily put down" (The Commercial Appeal, Memphis).
