Deadly Pedigree


ISBN-13: 978-1479151660 paperback

Nick Herald, a professional genealogist working in New Orleans, is hired to search for Louisiana relatives of an elderly man, a Holocaust survivor. Soon Nick realizes that this is no ordinary case of innocent genealogical curiosity, but a shrewd gamble for strange vengeance.

After finding his original client dead, Nick is pulled ever deeper into a deadly maelstrom of complications, contradictions, and predicaments. He travels to another historic town, Natchitoches in northwestern Louisiana, where he stumbles across murderous mysteries with roots in the darkest shadows of human history. Nick gets firsthand confirmation of his firm conviction that the past is always with us, especially in the South, shaping the present.

Back in New Orleans, Nick, ably assisted by a young disabled black woman named Hawty Latimer, pieces together a tangled tale of bigotry, betrayal, lust, and shame spanning two centuries. He falls into the arms of several beautiful women, with dangerous consequences for his conscience and his heart. And as the story draws to its conclusion, he learns far more about himself than he ever wanted to know.

Finally, Nick makes courageous decisions to right old wrongs and expose the guilty--while doing his best to save his own neck.
