A Walloping Read

Y'all know I'm a New Orleans writer, so when I praise a book set here, I pretty much know what I'm talking about.

I have high praise for SWAMP WALLOPER (A Fight Card Book) by Jack Tunney, edited by Paul Bishop. Available at for only $2.99

Here is the 5 Star Review I wrote for it:

Take a trip back to the 1950s, to Los Angeles and then to creepy Bayou Sauvage the only swamp within the city limits of a major American city - New Orleans. This is a wild ride full of great boxing scenes and some of the most interesting characters I've come across in a while. Patrick Felony Flynn and his wily cop partner Tombstone Jones are city slick hombres pitted against some truly evil villains. Don't want to tip off too much about the plot but there isn't a wasted word here.

Ya'll check it out at

Two months AK - After Katrina - the water is gone, along with most of the people. The mud is dried and much of the city is coated in a gray, brown film of silt and dirt. Pockets of the city have electricity and natural gas. The city lies prostrate, almost helpless, as people return to reclaim their lives. Others come to the deserted town, ruthless criminals moving in to stake their turf. Murder returns to New Orleans and the killers collide with a man who hunts murderers with methodical, calculating precision, innate in one who has the blood of the great plains warriors in his veins.

The NEW John Raven Beau novel.
