Mardi Gras Murder: 10/01/21

Mardi Gras Murder

Mardi Gras Murder by Ellen Byron is the fourth of the Cajun Country mystery series. Floods have put a damper on the annual mardi gras plans for Pelican. During the floods, the body of an unknown man washed up near the Crozat B&B. His death though is met also by the murder of the annual pageant president.

With two deaths, the mystery falls into the A plot and B plot formula that the Constable Molly Smith books use. Of course the two are related but how they are is part of the overall fun of this mystery.

An observant reader will pick up on the clues dropped early and often. These details are peppered throughout the book as conversational asides well before Maggie Crozat has enough information to focus her investigation.

The fifth book is Fatal Cajun Festival (2019)
