(I still copy to mr T, as a matter of precaution)
I’m a little bit late, but I would like to mention the following to feed
your quest for fiction mixing New Orleans/Louisiana and HB/noir.
First, an outstanding PI series by James Sallis (IIRC, it was not
Lew Griffin, his Black investigator from NO (six or seven novels). If you do
not know the series do not hesitate (but start with theone: “The Long-Legged
Fly” and it is better to follow the publication order). A first class cycle.
Robert Skinner plotted a series for his Wesley Farrell, HB character, a
Black evolving during the thirties in NO. Rather unusual.
A stand alone belonging to the excellent Nat Heller series by Max Allan
“Blood and Thunder”, dealing with Huey Long and his populist saga. A very
Hope this will help.
