A Secret Lies in New Orleans

By: Ron Wallace

About the Book

When 96-year-old retired U.S. Marshal and co-founder of Cowboys and Indians Detective Agency, William Matthew Wallace, receives a painting signed by his long-dead father in the mail from his former colleague living in New Orleans, an eight-decades-old family mystery unravels, and his son and godson are sent to investigate the circumstances for him. From pre-statehood Oklahoma into the turn of the twenty-first century, the family’s secrets are brought to light as a modern crime evolves from the past.

About the Author

Ron Wallace is an Oklahoma native and currently an adjunct instructor of English at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, in Durant, Oklahoma, where he was born and raised. His father served as a police officer there, rising to the rank of captain.  He is the author of ten books of poetry, five of which have been finalists in the Oklahoma Book Awards with Renegade and Other Poems winning the 2018 Oklahoma Book Award. Influenced by the styles of Robert B. Parker, Peter Bowen, and James Lee Burke, his novel, A Secret Lies in New Orleans is the prize-winning poet’s first venture into prose, although a second book is nearing completion.

    Excellent Read!! Was glued to it by page 3! Wallace's in-depth writing skills place you sitting right next to every character in this publication! Would recommend this novel to anyone that enjoys quality intellectual writing with a sense of southern sarcasm and charm!

    It was completely different from my normal reads, but man what a ride! As a once long ago student of Mr. Wallace, I could hear his voice in my head as the voice of the Oklahoma boys. I am very much looking forward to his next novel.

    James Lee Burke meets Lonesome Dove. This book is such fun with wonderfully real characters, whip smart dialogue and layers of atmosphere and intrigue that pulls you in and doesn't let go. Great book, had mine shipped all the way to Ireland.
