Thomas Carpenter – dead for 100 years – returns in 1978 to avenge his murder. He proves a challenge for a New Orleans novice detective Brenda Shapira and her senior partner, Roy Agnew. When 35-year old Shapira discovers the first victim in the historic Garden District, the beginning of 1978 will be anything but ordinary. As she unravels this long ago mystery steeped in New Orleans history and the Yellow Fever epidemic, Brenda realizes that she may be Carpenter’s next victim.
“Lott’s The Feathers is equal parts addictive and dark. It’s an outstanding thriller from a new author I plan to read now on a regular basis. This story doesn’t just get into your head, it tickles the back of your mind and sends your anxious heart into your throat. This is your next read! Go to it!” –Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Bram Stoker Award winning author of Black & Orange and Bottled Abyss.
THE FEATHERS is available from Amazon.
