by Stewart Yerton

Amy Rubin is a young reporter stuck writing stories about cute animals for The New Orleans Sentinel newspaper. Victor Marcel is a tourism magnate trying to develop a 600-room hotel on the edge of the French Quarter. When a freak accident at Marcel's petting zoo puts Amy on the trail of an even bigger story about Marcel's business ventures, Amy's hunt threatens to derail Marcel's big hotel plans. The story unfolds against the backdrop of an aspiring politician's campaign to abolish the Temple Emanu-El Brotherhood's annual Crawfish Bingo fundraiser, an event you could find only in the Crescent City.
"Funny and lyrical ... reminiscent of Tom Wolfe. The plot moves along with a bounce." -- Adam Braff, internationally renowned screenwriter. "I laughed my ass off." -- Jed Horne, former Metro Editor, The Times-Picayune; author of Breach of Faith: Hurricane Katrina and the Near Death of an American City and Desire Street: A True Story of Death and Deliverance in New Orleans
