-- It's an election year and the local king of gentrification and out of town condominium developers seeking to exploit disaster capitalism in the wake of Hurricane Katrina have the favor of the New Orleans City Council. The ideas the Ninth Ward's newest residents have about the future of the city's most troubled neighborhood could once again displace the city's poorest citizens, many of whom are still grappling with the storm's economic aftermath. Detective Holland is asked to find the motive behind the offer to buy the homes being built by the Make It Right Foundation, and what he finds stirs the city's treacherous political waters in ways nobody ever imagined possible.ABOUT THE AUTHOR
