New Orleans Mourning
It’s Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and civic leader and socialite Chauncy St. Amant has been crowned Rex, King of Carnival. But his day of glory comes to an abrupt and bloody end when a parade-goer dressed as Dolly Parton guns him down. Is the killer his aimless, promiscuous daughter Marcelle? Homosexual, mistreated son Henry? Helpless, alcoholic wife Bitty? Or some unknown player? Turns out the king had enemies…
After their father is taken hostage in Vietnam, brothers Max and Tom Wayne, both working for CIA Special Operations Group, infiltrate China to get him back. There they uncover a rogue Chinese unit’s plot to assassinate several US admirals at Navy bases in Hawaii. And aerosolize anthrax to kill other key leaders in Washington—part of a battle plan to paralyze the US military in the Pacific. Can Max and Tom stop the rogue team before they push America and China to war?
