But one hot August evening, on a visit to his old New Orleans Lakeview neighborhood, Marchand sees police standing over a body. What ensues is a cat-and-mouse game between Detective Konrad Treacher, a savvy black detective sure Marchand knows more than hes telling, and the lawyer, who begins to wonder if his girlfriend is really dead. The climax occurs almost three years to the day after Katrina, when another hurricane, Gustav, strikes the area.
