In a time of anger, activism, and bitter racial tension, a sniper has appeared to heat up an already sweltering New Orleans summer - by tearing up innocent people like so many paper targets. The shooter's sixth victim is cut down while walking at Lew Griffin's side. The victim was white, Griffin is black - a reluctant young P.I, whose poet's heart has already been hardened by amoral injustice and heavy drink. And although he has only just met his unfortunate companion, Griffin knows it is down to him to find her killer.
