Trick question –  by Tony Dunbar

There’s something appealing to an outsider about New Orleans and a narrator named “Tubby.” He is a lawyer who owns a bar and finds himself defending a black guy who practices voodoo and works at an experimental clinic that develops new medications by killing mice and rats.

There are subplots, of course, Tubby’s daughter is pregnant, his son is arrested for stealing and Tubby’s ex wife is dating the attorney who was married to his ex girlfriend.

This is a lively, surprising, fun, hard-to-put-down book that makes you appreciate your simple life (even if it doesn’t include gumbo shrimp, turtle soup and chicory coffee).
