• Description : Bon Ton Roulet Let the good times roll! Or Laissez les bon ton roulet, as they say in inimitable Cajun fashion. But for post-Katrina New Orleans, the good times are hard to come by of late. The fourth adventure in the Bradford Fairfax series finds Brad in the original good-time town where many former residents have vanished forever. To make matters worse, the town is overrun by a band of punks terrorizing the waterfront in their fearsome nightly sprees. There's more misery here than in a Delta Blues songbook! When a troubled city worker ends up dead, it looks like an eccentric resort attendant named Quint may be behind it. But it's not just the living who are suspect. Brad follows a tip to the local cemetery where the legendary Marie Laveau is said to rule over the dead. At the same time, a creepy prognosticator named Doctor Doom has more to say about the city's troubles than most folks want to hear. As if that weren't enough, Bradford's blue-haired amour, Zach, disappears, leaving Brad to search the city for him. The town that gave birth to jazz and a genuine Voodoo queen seems to be having re-birth pangs of a very different sort. As Bradford Fairfax learns, all is not well where the bon ton roulet.

• Description : In Cold Blood meets Adrian Nicole LeBlanc’s Random Family: A harrowing, profoundly personal investigation of the causes, effects, and communal toll of a deeply troubling crime—the brutal murder of three young children by their parents in the border city of Brownsville, Texas. On March 11, 2003, in Brownsville, Texas—one of America’s poorest cities—John Allen Rubio and Angela Camacho murdered their three young children. The apartment building in which the brutal crimes took place was already rundown, and in their aftermath a consensus developed in the community that it should be destroyed. It was a place, neighbors felt, that was plagued by spiritual cancer. In 2008, journalist Laura Tillman covered the story for The Brownsville Herald. The questions it raised haunted her, particularly one asked by the sole member of the city’s Heritage Council to oppose demolition: is there any such thing as an evil building? Her investigation took her far beyond that question, revealing the nature of the toll that the crime exacted on a city already wracked with poverty. It sprawled into a six-year inquiry into the larger significance of such acts, ones so difficult to imagine or explain that their perpetrators are often dismissed as monsters alien to humanity. With meticulous attention and stunning compassion, Tillman surveyed those surrounding the crimes, speaking with the lawyers who tried the case, the family’s neighbors and relatives and teachers, even one of the murderers: John Allen Rubio himself, whom she corresponded with for years and ultimately met in person. The result is a brilliant exploration of some of our age’s most important social issues, from poverty to mental illness to the death penalty, and a beautiful, profound meditation on the truly human forces that drive them. It is disturbing, insightful, and mesmerizing in equal measure. [...] by Publisher : 'Simon and Schuster'
