A Fair Grounds Mystery

Fairgrounds MysterySynopsis | Trailer | Amazon

New Orleans detectives Etienne Baptiste and his partner Duane Morrow are called to a local cemetery, where a body has been discovered.  They immediately identify the body as that of Jimmy Landry, a local PI who was an NOPD veteran and Baptiste's mentor.  This murder is personal, and the detectives soon discover that Landry was investigating a death that took place years ago at the local race track.

This cold case leads them to a local journalist who long has believed her horse trainer father died at another's hand even though his death was ruled natural.  She'd hired Landry to investigate her father's death, and Lt. Baptiste soon believes she may be correct.

As Baptiste and his partner uncover ugly secrets, a killer lurks in the shadows, threatening them and their familes.
