Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Tony Dunbar's Tubby Dubonnet mysteries have been praised as "hair-raising" (New York Times Book Review), "terrific" (Booklist), and "deliciously witty" (Publishers Weekly). Dunbar once again brings us to the crazy and colorful city of New Orleans. This time it's Mardi Gras--and a violent storm drenches the city in chaos. As the water level rises, a dangerous gang of marooned bank robbers become desperate to escape--and it's up to Tubby to thwart their murderous plans...

Rezension:

New Orleans has been the favorite setting for so many mystery series (I stopped counting after two dozen) that it could easily become just another colorful crutch. But in his fourth book about lawyer Tubby Dubonnet, Tony Dunbar artfully turns the location on its head. A major character emerges from a huge rainstorm that drowns the city and threatens to wash out its entire Mardi Gras celebration. Tubby, who starts the book short of money, work, and self-esteem, literally rises--along with the water level--to the occasion. He loses a client in the flooded streets; shares a hotel room with a friendly, slightly larcenous female tourist from Chicago; and then stumbles on a trio of bank robbers whose agenda is linked to an old New Orleans property swindle. By showing the damage that a couple of days of rain can cause to the city's fragile ecosystem, Dunbar makes us really care about its fate. The same can be said about our feelings for Tubby: he's a lazy, corner-cutting, slightly shabby, occasionally reckless but decent man who turns out to be much more than a passing tourist attraction. Previous Tubby tales in paperback include City of Beads, Crooked Man, and Trick Question.
