THE MOST DANGEROUS PREDATORS IN THE BAYOU, GATORS OR HUMANS?
Bestselling author Allison Brennan’s love of research and interest in true crime cold cases led her to study the Louisiana bayou and the murders of the Jeff Davis 8. Eight women disappeared in Jefferson Davis Parish between 2005 and 2009, and the case remains unsolved.
In SEVEN GIRLS GONE, (book four in the Quinn & Costa series), Brennan highlights the small-town insular attitudes and distrust of outsiders, the justice never delivered to the families of the murdered prostitutes, rampant drug addiction, and law enforcement cover-ups.
Detective Beau Hebert of the St. Augustine, Louisiana police force responds to the call about a murder at the Magnolia Inn—Broussard Parish’s biggest provider of prostitution, violence, and drugs for decades. When a string of fatalities follows behind him, Hebert suspects their corrupt city officials and police force might be covering up the crimes. He enlists the help of his Navy-buddy-turned-FBI-Special Agent, Michael Harris, along with Special Agent in Charge Matt Costa, Detective Kara Quinn, and the rest of the FBI Mobile Response Team.
Can they uncover the corruption and get justice for the murdered women before more people end up dead?
