As the third Storyville mystery begins, it's 1910, and Creole detective Valentin St. Cyr has just returned to New Orleans. Having only recently solved the case of the jass murders, he is drawn reluctantly into the investigation of a new murder--that of a well-to-do gentleman on seedy Rampart Street. Then another wealthy society man turns up dead, and the detective learns that the two victims had been acquainted years before. In a web of coincidence, the second murder was witnessed--or was it?--by the man who's now keeping Justine, Valentin's old girlfriend, as his paramour. Valentin probes deeper even though the city's most powerful leaders pressure him to drop the case.
