It’s personal for criminologist Bobby Delery. Heat and crime rises during the steamy summer in New Orleans, but he’s got a job to do. That can only mean the latest in Michael Allen Zell’s acclaimed Bobby Delery series. Smart and economic prose. Tough and funny talk.

Musician Rodney Soulman Mercadel sets up a pyramid scheme with three pastors to sell seats on a non-existent ark for hurricane season. Vonetta (nicknamed Krystal) the sister of Ellis Smith, Bobby Delery’s girlfriend, has gone missing. And, to complete the title, New Orleans is a character in its own right. From the 9th Ward to New Orleans East, from the French Quarter to Frenchmen Street, Delery figures out how it all fits together.

This book is available in paperback ($14.95).

Michael Allen Zell discusses and signs his book, City Krystal Soulman.
