Review by: phil gurney on Feb. 17, 2012 :
Great story. The main character is a one man New Orleans police department, (this was about the same era). The finale is very satisfying, seeing such a sociopathic neanderthal get his comeuppance. I sure hope there may be more material available for publication in the near future
