Private Eye: 03/30/10
For "Private Eye" Albert E Cowdrey is back in his home turf of New Orleans. Like my favorite of his Nolo stories this one is also a mystery with an underlying mysticism.
There's been a kidnapping and JJ's been recruited to help find the girl. He has a talent for finding things but he's reluctant to call himself a psychic or a seer. Sees things, though he does.
I liked "Private Eye." It's told in a chatty tone of voice and is a little shorter than a typical Cowdrey story. When he wants to he can write terse witty stories full of the Bayou atmosphere. This is one of those stories.
