Senator “Poker John” Herbert of Louisiana will probably be the next President of the United States--unless a rumor about a secret in his past is exposed. It’s a secret even he doesn’t know about. Max Maxwell is sent to New Orleans to determine if the secret is true. Did Herbert father a mixed-race child in his home state? If he did, does the child know who the father is, and what impact can it have on the upcoming election? The search for the answers takes Max from Bourbon Street, the cane fields, and the bayous to a Saint John’s Eve Voodoo celebration in his quest to find out the truth. Along the way, he sees what the government will do to destroy one of its own and how far it will go to protect that same person. One night of seeing That Old Black Magic in action is enough to last Max for a lifetime...if he has a lifetime left.
KUDOS FOR THAT OLD BLACK MAGIC
In That Old Black Magic by Paul Sinor, private investigator Max Maxwell is asked by his former army intelligence boss and now current client, Bill Hart, to find a woman and her daughter in New Orleans who may, or may not, play a big part in the upcoming presidential election. Max won’t know until he finds them. But what Max and Bill don’t know is that the opposition is after them too, and they aren’t just looking for information. If Max isn’t careful, he may become collateral damage in a race for the Oval Office...Well written, fast paced, and full of alarming surprises, this one will keep you glued to your chair all the way through. Very well done. ~ Taylor Jones, The Review Team of Taylor Jones & Regan Murphy
