Roger Bull, Karen Bull & Sal Perricone
About the Book:
In the weeks following the destruction wrought by Hurricane Katrina, thousands of runaways descended on ravaged New Orleans with the hopes of finding jobs to help rebuild one of America's most intriguing city—New Orleans. Young, naive, and ready for adventure, they unknowingly walked into the jaws of homicidal predators. When the storm-weary police discovered the naked and abused bodies of runaways, they called the FBI. In turn, the FBI requested their Behavioral Science Unit (BSU) from Quantico, Virginia. What revelations did the BSU uncover in their investigation? Who was involved? Why were these deviants pursuing these victims? When and where were these crazed characters performing their acts of atrocity? The task force needed to lure the degenerates from their lair. What did the agents do? Did the plan work..., and at what cost? In the midst of this ungodly investigation, there was more than physical evidence involved. Were there spirits? And, who is Father O'Malley? New Orleans, the city that care forgot. The Big Easy. Not for these victims. An old European state of mind in an American city with Napoleonic influences. The crusty but vivacious establishment driven by order and chaos. Where legality resides with corruption. This is New Orleans..., the unbridled example of life.

Reworked. Re-edited. Moving. Flowing. Like the river that bends around this old city, I flow with the changes in my stories to make them new again.
An old fashioned city with distinctly old cultures, a gumbo of Spanish, French, English, Creole, Irish, and other international influences, that is New Orleans. For all of her charm, architecture, art, music, culinary tastes, she is a lady filled with humanity... Human beings with choices..., to do good or evil.
Climb the clef notes and fly... or fall.
Eat to your heart's delight... or crawl under a bridge and try to survive.
Paint yourself into the world's museums... or into a corner with no escape.
Build a new world..., or collapse with the ruin of the derelicts.
The Big Easy is..., or it will be the crescent around your neck, dragging you under the eddies of the mighty Mississippi.
There are unmistakable charms and characters in this city. New Orleaneans have no match. Se la vie, cher! (That's life, precious!)
