Tubby Meets Katrina

(2006)
(The seventh book in the Tubby Dubonnet series)
A novel by

 
New Orleans attorney Tony Dunbar's lawyer-turned-sleuth Tubby Dubonnet is back, and this time, the city of New Orleans itself is endangered. Just when Tubby thought it was safe to come back to New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina boils up a rich gumbo of trouble for the unsuspecting lawyer in Tubby Meets Katrina.

Tubby rides out the storm okay--but then the levees break, the city floods, and he and thousands of other refugees end up in the hellish Convention Center. In the chaos, Tubby's daughter finds herself targeted by an escaped psychopath, one who envisions himself the human embodiment of the hurricane. With no law enforcement to rely upon, Tubby must use his wits and his connections to protect himself and his family while trying to restore his home and help bring his beloved city back to life.

This fast-paced story includes incisive vignettes of the dangerous days just after Katrina hit and of the frustrating weeks that followed. Author Dunbar himself had to flee New Oleans to escape the storm, bringing a unique personal touch to his depictions. Combining real events with startling suspense, Tubby Meets Katrina is an important novel for anyone gripped by the Gulf Coast tragedy.
