Description

New Orleans author Tony Dunbar's lawyer-sleuth Tubby Dubonnet is back, and this time, the city of New Orleans itself is endangered. Just when Tubby thought it was safe to return to New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina boils up a rich gumbo of trouble for the unsuspecting barrister in Tubby Meets Katrina. Tubby rides out the storm okay-but then the levees break, the city floods, and he and thousands of other refugees end up in the hellish Convention Center. In the chaos, Tubby's daughter finds herself targeted by an escaped psychopath, one who envisions himself the human embodiment of the hurricane. With no law enforcement to rely upon, Tubby must use his wits and his connections to protect himself and his family while trying to restore his home and help bring his beloved city back to life.This fast-paced story includes incisive vignettes of the dangerous days just after Katrina hit and of the frustrating weeks that followed. Author Dunbar himself had to flee New Orleans to escape the storm, lending authenticity to his personal depictions. Combining real events with startling suspense, Tubby Meets Katrina is both a thrilling read and an important record for anyone gripped by the Gulf Coast tragedy.show more
