Trick Question: A Hard-Boiled New Orleans Legal Thriller (Tubby Dubonnet #3) (The Tubby Dubonnet Series) by Tony Dunbar

Trick Question is the THIRD mouth-watering mystery in Edgar- and Anthony-nominated author Tony Dunbar’s beloved TUBBY DUBONNET series.

“A real work of mystery art.” -New Orleans Times-Picayune

“(Tubby Dubonnet) makes a charming guide to a side of New Orleans few see.” -Booklist

DUNBAR’S INVENTED A NEW GENRE: CALL IT CREOLE-FOODIE-NOIR.

For the discerning reader who enjoys a knowing chuckle, a sazerac, a bit of pompano en papillote, and a running travelogue of New Orleans along with his murders…

Medical lab janitor Cletus Busters is caught red-handed in a restricted area with the frozen head of Dr. Whitney Valentine, one of the lab’s most prestigious researchers. Busters won’t say much, except that he’s innocent. But given his conspicuous record and past as a voodoo guru, all signs point to life in prison.

Calling Tubby Dubonnet!

With the trial less than a week away, Busters’ lawyer has made exactly two motions – heading to the bar for several rounds of Wild Turkey and begging Tubby for help. Meanwhile, Tubby’s taken on a new client – a female boxer with an abusive boyfriend – and also has to referee the romantic entanglements of his ex-wife and three teenage daughters.

But as Buster’s trial proceeds, and the jury savors the startling evidence (alongside Dunbar’s succulent descriptions of Crescent City cuisine), the danger mounts. Revealing the murderer could prove to be Tubby’s biggest triumph – or his last case ever.

Warning: Do not attempt to read this book without a handy snack – preferably a Hubig’s pie or a pack of Zapp’s potato chips. Both would be better.

“Dunbar’s understated, syncopated delivery makes you wonder if there are enough honest men in New Orleans for a rubber of bridge” -Kirkus

“Dunbar weaves together the many strands of his highly entertaining tale with much skill and wit.” -Publisher’s Weekly
