Read Our Review of The Secrets Of Newberry

Paperback Description:

Two lifelong friends are about to discover the hard side of life in The Big Easy after a heinous crime is committed …


1950s New Orleans couldn’t be sweeter for Ivory "Bones" Arcineaux and Hampton Bynote. Friends since meeting at an illegal gambling house outside Newberry, Louisiana, they indulge themselves with all the fine women, good food, and wild nights they can handle. All seems good in N’awlins-especially for Hampton, who plans to make a clean break from riotous living after falling for the woman of his dreams, classy Magnolia Holiday. But the love of a good woman may not be enough to pull Hampton from the brink of disaster when his pal Bones murders a white city councilman during a simple robbery gone wrong.

Now with the local police and FBI hot on their trails, Hampton and Bones must decide whether friendship is worth losing their freedom-and possibly their lives.

"McGlothin creates a sizzling slice of life in 1947 … He weaves convincing historical elements into a fast-moving caper."

-Publishers Weekly on Ms. Etta’s Fast House
