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.

A Secret Lies in New Orleans

There are good books, and their are great books. This one is the latter. Fun reading. Smart. Witty.

A Secret Lies in New Orleans

My Father has read every Western and mystery in existence. Loves the genres. I have bought him books every Christmas for as long as I can remember. This is the ONLY one he has ever requested more from by the same author.
High praise.
