Just returned to New Orleans and only recently having solved the case of the Jass Murders, Creole detective Valentin St. Cyr is reluctantly drawn into the investigation of a new murder—that of a well-to-do gentleman on seedy Rampart Street.
Soon another wealthy society man turns up dead, and the only potential witness is the man who’s now keeping Justine, Valentin’s old girlfriend, as his paramour. As Valentin probes deeper, the city’s most powerful leaders pressure him to drop the investigation. What could he be getting close to, and what nerves might he unwittingly strike?
Rampart Street is David Fulmer’s most heart-pounding mystery and his soulful detective’s most dangerous case yet.
