Wow, I really felt like I was actually a part of Mardi Gras reading this book. The author did a great job putting me there. I actually felt the rush, the tensions and just a little claustrophobic. I'm sure that it helped that I had been to Mardi Gras in Galveston. However, this book put me right back there.
The characters in this book were very well developed and I grew to like them immediately (well, except for one) and to feel for the pressures of their jobs. Dealing with multiple gunshots in the middle of Mardi Gras and the pressures and issues of having to do their jobs? I felt for these characters.
A wonderful story that I just ripped right through, enjoyed the feelings it brought and meeting these characters.
