City of the Dead
Introducing the ‘world's best private investigator’ ...
New Orleans, and Vic Willing, Assistant District Attorney for the prosecutor's office, has been missing since Hurricane Katrina hit. Called in from San Francisco is Claire DeWitt, a detective whose expertise and methods derive from some unique sources.
What Claire discovers takes us into the heart of the crime-ravaged, deeply wounded city, where those who can afford it live behind fences and those who can’t are slain daily on the streets. And it’s there she discovers that the only thing worse than an unsolved case, maybe, is a solved one.
From the acclaimed author of Dope and Come Closer, City of the Dead is the first novel of a detective series unlike any you have read before, one that is sure to inspire a passionate and devoted following.
‘With City of the Dead, Sara Gran has pulled the traditional female sleuth into the twenty-first century with a novel that’s smart and hip, dark and funny. Claire DeWitt is a cool blend of Nancy Drew and Sid Vicious. I can't wait for the next one.’ Alafair Burke, author of City of Lies
