Skip Langdon Mystery Series Vol. 6-10
Follow bodacious New Orleans cop Skip Langdon as she leaves her rookie days behind and evolves into a seasoned homicide detective, ever tough and quick-witted, but something more—sensitive and tender-hearted as well. As Skip’s career takes off, her cases pull her into increasingly dark, gritty, twisted corners of the Crescent City: she must save New Orleans from a psychopath who’s running for mayor, solve the murder of an honest police chief (a rarity in a city famous for corruption), and unravel the puzzling disappearance of a politician’s husband.
A woman, clad only in a white nightgown, is dead – her body discovered on the banks of Black River. Her unsolved murder, and her ghost, still haunt the small town where she lived and died. Twenty-five years later, Detective Gordon Daniels inherits his estranged grandfather’s home on the property where the body was found. Anxious to sell it, Daniels invites his partner, Detective Aaron Remalla to help him clean it out and enjoy some time off from their high-pressure job. But their getaway is interrupted when a second woman’s body is found on the river, clad in a white nightgown, and they are unwittingly thrown them into an investigation they would prefer to avoid.
