I very much enjoyed "Chasing The Devil's Tail," by David Fulmer. I loved Fulmer's description of Storyville,its amazing people and its tawdry way of life.
I very much enjoyed "Chasing The Devil's Tail," by David Fulmer. This is the first book in a series featuring Creole detective Valentin St Cyr, set in New Orleans in the early 1900's, and more particularly, set in Storyville. Storyville was the "special district" set aside in New Orleans for legalized prostitution in 1897 under an ordinance introduced by Alderman Story, whose name became attached to the district, probably to his discomfort.
David Fulmer is the author of eleven and award-winning novels. David Fulmer weaves a very readable tale of murder & mystery into such a rich picture of New Orleans. Jass was nominated for the "Best of 2005" lists by Library Journal, Deadly Pleasures Magazine, and The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

In one instant, the pistol appeared, he heard a sharp bang and saw LeMenthe jump back as the shot whistled by to catch the pimp neatly at the base of the skull.
