Confirmed grump Eddie Valentino placed the ad. Hotshot twenty-something Talba Wallis knew exactly how to answer it.

And thus was born the dynamic duo of New Orleans private detectives, one cynical, sixty-five-year-old Luddite white dude with street smarts, and one young, bright-eyed, Twenty-First century African-American female poet, performance artist, mistress of disguise, and computer jock extraordinaire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Julie Smith’s Triumphant Return
Long time fans of Julie Smith’s witty mysteries will not be disappointed by this new title.
Spinning off a character from her latest Skip Langdon mystery “82 Desire”, Talba Wallis, this book definitely ranks up there with Smith’s Edgar Award winning “New Orleans Mourning”.
