In a time of jazz and bootleg liquor, Death stalks New Orleans.
Captain Ted Mooney of the NOPD loves his city, and hates those who make trouble for its citizens.
In the alleys and flophouses, people keep dying in suspicious ways.
Ted must root out the cause of these mysterious deaths.
And he must face a difficult question: Who decides right and wrong?
An excerpt from Angel of Mercy:
Ted started to speak, but had to clear his throat a couple of times. He didn’t bother wiping the tears away as they coursed down his cheeks. Beside him, the two other policemen crossed themselves and muttered prayers in French patois.
“Lee,” he finally said. “I was too late. I don’t want to be too late again.”
