Revenge may be a dish best served cold, but this is Louisiana, where everything gets a splash of hot sauce.
Detective Cadillac Holland is called upon to locate Senator Chester Donovan’s missing daughter-in-law. A pool of blood in the trunk of her Mercedes exposes unexplained deaths in a town once described as being a place “where there are more alligators than people, and the alligators are friendlier.” The solution to this mystery lies buried in the town’s sordid history, a story that changes with each telling. Detective Holland must find what is driving an innovative and vengeful killer before he becomes their next victim.
Uncaged Review: Normally I’m not a huge mystery fan, but this book pulls off a twist I never saw coming and it was one of those “what the hell just happened” moments. I’ve never read a book by this author and even though this book is the fifth book in a series, I never felt lost. Holland is a detective that is complex, smart and thinks outside the box. When a missing person case turns into a much more riveting case and Holland must peel back the layers to find the truth before the killer finds him.
This book kept me turning the pages and although it wasn’t the book that made me haul it around all over the place waiting for a chance to read a couple more pages, it kept me coming back and rethinking my suspense genre aversion. A good read with some good twists. Reviewed by Cyrene
