The Blue Garou by H. Max Hiller- Special Order
Detective Cooter 'Cadillac' Holland left a career in military intelligence to join the Louisiana State Patrol and find the solution to his father's disappearance in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. He returned to the city of his birth, only to find it as battered and PTSD wracked as himself. Four years have passed and he has not solved that case that brought him home. Now he's asked to prove that a pit bull is the murder weapon and not the murderer of New Orleans' most notorious criminal. The dog's tracks lead to the murder victim's son, street-wise fiance, and a bodyguard with secrets of his own. The investigation crosses paths with the FBI's investigation into a rap music label, the DEA's search for a storage locker of missing firearms, a dog-fighting ring, and blackmail involving a famous Hollywood actress. Most surprising of all is that the clues will begin to heat up Detective Holland's own cold case. It seems everyone has a secret in post-Katrina New Orleans and NOPD's Chief of Detectives can only hope Detective Holland will be able to find a solution which will "reach a conclusion in line with everyone's perception of justice."
