New Orleans Rises, Ghostly

Deadly Night (Flynn Brothers, #1) Deadly Night by Heather Graham

My review

rating: 5 of 5 stars
Post-Katrina novels are beginning to hit the market. As a romance, this novel does not, of course, address the particular challenges and tragedies faced by residents of New Orleans, the aftermath of the storm, even years later, does help move the plot.

This is a good contemporary suspense/ghost story. A haunted mansion just out of town, disappearances, historic tragedies, and current serial killers all combine to move the story along at a good pace. The hero and heroine are fun to watch as they get to know each other's good and bad sides.

A varied and, yes, colorful, cast of characters rounds out the book. Great setup for the sequels as well.
