New Orleans Confidential (2006, PointBlank Press)

A collection of 1940’s noir private-eye short stories.  Come prowl the lonely, sometimes violent streets of America’s most exotic city with lone-wolf private eye Lucien Caye.  From Publisher’s Weekly, 3/13/06: “Former homicide detective De Noux turns out an engaging, fast-paced collection of stories featuring private eye and womanizer extraordinaire Lucien Caye as he tracks philandering husbands, possible murderers and missing cats. Set predominantly against the rich backdrop of 1940s New Orleans, these stories-abounding with ample bosoms and willing women-are fun, and the author knows his stuff when it comes to the Big Easy.”
