Robert Edgars is a rough-and-tumble private investigator who wears an ancient straw hat, flip-flops, and ripped jeans-shorts held up by a rope. He is hired by his handsome and refined brother Elliott to look into the nefarious activities of the powerful, unscrupulous lawyers sitting around his lunch table at an American Bar Association conference.
Robert is helped by well-traveled pharmacist Dr. Mark Warren, Director of NOLA Phytoceuticals: Plants with a Purpose, which is a hi-tech laboratory in New Orleans, Louisiana, that develops both medical and cosmetic uses for plants.
Mark is at home in the Big Easy’s Halloween French Quarter crowds of rowdy vampires, witches slurping green fluorescent foot-long drinks, tipsy werewolves and drunken ghosts. But amid the devilishly clever tribute to the artistry and creativity of the locals, there is serious investigating to be done.
The truth exposes a mail-order husband, hidden pasts, and lucrative aphrodisiac plants. An intriguing, colorful cast of characters is revealed as strange revelations send Robert hunting clues around the country.
