Could there possibly be a
connection between a dead man
in New Orleans and a second killing
in the small town of Toussaint? That's the question New Orleans homicide detective Guy Gautreaux ponders
after the second crime is committed.

But more troubling still: What,
if anything, do the dead men have
to do with Guy's friend and lover,
café owner Jilly Gable? Finding the
truth will surely place Jilly in even
more danger, but the alternative isn't palatable to Guy, either as a man or
as a cop. He'll protect her, no matter what it takes or how much resistance she offers.

An extremely convoluted plot,
plus lots of rambling introspection
and a heroine who seems determined
to get herself killed detract from
this novel. However, these flaws
are offset by strong sexual tension
between Guy and Jilly and some
smart dialogue. Cameron's many
fans will enjoy this book, but
everyone else should probably
steer clear. (Nov., 416 pp., $16.95)
