New Orleans Irresistible – Erotic Mystery Fiction In the hands of crime fiction writer O’Neil De Noux, these genre-blending journeys are part mystery, part science-fiction, part suspense, but all erotic. Roam the steamy streets of America’s erotic capital where you’ll meet a hot temptress who just might be an hallucination, bored housewives getting nude massages in public, a private eye ogling some kissable cleavage, a deliciously dangerous trek on the wild side of town, a pair of erotic vampires, a conveniently windblown skirt and the legendary Gold Bug of Jean Lafitte. For the record – she’s not big and there’s nothing easy about New Orleans. The old nickname, City That Care Forgot is closer to the truth, but trying to explain or label New Orleans with words has eluded writers for over two-hundred ninety-three years. As Rome is to Europe, New Orleans is America’s Eternal City. She can’t be changed, can’t die, can’t be flooded into submission or blown away by hurricanes. Her people can be scattered but they’ll return and others will come to be seduced by New Orleans, because New Orleans is an idea, an emotion, a unique way of life with such delicious pleasure, she’s – irresistible. She’s America’s Erotic Capital. Ernie Pyle once wrote, “They say that when you get within a hundred miles you begin to feel a little drunk on just the idea of New Orleans.” The greatest crime-fiction writer of our time, Elmore Leonard, who was born in New Orleans, put it succinctly in Tishomingo Blues when a character explained, “People born and raised in New Orleans only move if they’re forced to.” Yeah, and they usually find a way to come back. I wrote this introduction in for the first edition of this book in 2006 in Lake Charles, Louisiana, where Katrina deposited me. But I never left New Orleans in mind and spirit. I can never leave New Orleans, even if I’m not physically there. Eventually I meandered back, settling on the north side of that evil Lake Pontchartrain (you know, the one that flooded the city), to hilly land above sea-level, so my new house won’t get flooded when the levees break again. I can drive into the city whenever I feel like it because, baby, New Orleans ain’t goin’ nowhere. The stories in this collection are about pleasure. They are also about other passions – obsession, fear, exhibitionism, love and murder, sex and violence, you know – modern day America. Again quoting Ernie Pyle, “New Orleans hungers for pleasure, and has it, and let him beware who tries to interfere.” Come experience the steamy side of irresistible New Orleans.
