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.
Arrogant and abusive Judge Samuel Chesterfield is murdered in his chambers during a sensational wrongful-death trial brought against a prominent abortionist. Only the four trial lawyers had access. Edward Mead, 77-year-old distinguished law professor, acts as special prosecutor. Still brilliant but struggling with the ravages of age and the recent death of his wife, Mead is thrust headlong into a lethal maelstrom of crime and corruption that threatens to submerge his mind and body, with the slightest misstep costing his life.
