Sex, Larceny, and Wrong Motives Steam the Pages of Mardi Gras Ice

It is Mardi Gras time, and the city of New Orleans is shimmering with the colors of Carnival and pulsating with the sounds of zydeco and jazz. Against such a backdrop comes Mardi Gras Ice—a tale of deceit, deadly encounters, and a jewel heist gone terribly wrong.

He turned the radio volume up loud, listening closely for the report to begin while he sped on.”
