Can't Stop the Funk by H. Max Hiller- Special Order
Louisiana State Police Detective 'Cadillac' Holland's sense of justice tends to come with unintended consequeces. NOPD's Chief of Detectives wants to know who is trying to buy the new home the Make It Right Foundation built for his favorite sous chef. The Lower Ninth Ward has suddenly become the hottest place to build a house in New Orleans. The ideas the city's newest residents have about the troubled neighborhood's future seem intent upon once again displacing the city's poorest citizens, many of whom are still grappling with Hurricane Katrina's lingering aftermath. It's an election year and condominium developers and the local king of gentrification have the favor of the City Council. It's up to Detective Holland, despite his 'talent' for making a mess of things, to investigate something that isn't s crime and avoid stirring the city's treacherous political waters.
