River Road

by Eric Wilder

Genre: Cajun Mystery Thriller

Synopsis:
River Road is Book 5 in Eric Wilder’s popular French Quarter Mystery series. In River Road, a new client hires P.I. Wyatt Thomas to find the person who murdered his mother. The problem is the case isn’t just cold it’s frozen solid.

Events happen quickly when Wyatt agrees to find the person who murdered his client’s mother. Unknown assailants kill the man. When Wyatt attempts to intervene, he is shot. He awakens in a New Orleans’ hospital only to find the killers have yet to finish with him.

The mysterious men want him dead. He escapes and learns they’ve somehow managed to pin his client’s murder on him. But why? Determined to find out, he enlists the aid of Lucy Diamond, a beautiful though cynical reporter in town to film a story on the same murder his client paid him to solve. He marks her for death when they discuss the case.

The ensuing chase drags them through the gritty backside of New Orleans where everyone has a dark secret and a bloody motive. What’s the connection between the N.O.P.D., Krewe of Rex, and the southern mafia? How are the Russian Special Forces, C.I.A., and U.S. Public Health Service involved? Why is the Cuban army trying to kill them? And, what’s up with the mysterious and secret satanic sect that practices human sacrifice? Wyatt and Lucy must find out or die trying.

Here is what some readers have said about the French Quarter Mystery Series: You will hear a rocking zydeco band and smell gumbo cooking on most every page. Wilder captures the quirky, weird vibe that is New Orleans. Wilder makes you want to have a Dixie beer with his characters. Wilder’s fiction is like a cold, hurricane slush on a hot Louisiana day.

review

4.5 suspenseful hearts..

Who wouldn’t think there was mystery and intrigue in the Big Easy? Wyatt Thomas, cop turned private eye, meets a client at a rather unusual place. A funeral, but even for the Big Easy, this funeral is strange. Jeribeth Briggs, the deceased, is not in a coffin but set up on display like the socialite that she was as though she was waiting for a dance. Wyatt’s client comes up behind him with his retainer and the only piece of evidence that he has with the one request, “Find my mother’s killer. And don’t turn around until I’m gone.”. Wyatt takes one look into the envelope and turns to follow Timothy Taggert, he needs more answers before he can start to investigate. Once out on the side walk, he sees Timothy man-handled into a car and yells out for them to stop. They turn and shoot at him and then he wakes in the emergency room. After discharging and headed back to his room and finding it ransacked, he finds that he’s on the hook for Timothy’s murder AND he still has to find out who kill Dr. Taggert several decades ago. He recruits a few of his trusted friends because, hey, this is New Orleans and it seems that everyone is out to get him already. 

This was definitely a page-turner from word go. I could never figure out who was on who’s side, or who was after who, or who actually killed Dr. Taggert until the end. This was a fabulous mystery book. I can’t wait to try some of the others in the theories.
