Review:

Praise for David Fulmer's Storyville mysteries:

"You can almost taste the gumbo... Fulmer's languid, conversational style perfectly matches the Crescent City setting with its complex web of murder, corruption and betrayal." -- San Francisco Chronicle

"A beautifully constructed, elegantly presented time trip to a New Orleans of the very early 1900s. . . . The period is brilliantly recaptured. If Fulmer has plans for future stories about St. Cyr and his real and imaginary Fourth Ward cronies, they'd be more than welcome here." --Los Angeles Times



"Jazzy, early 20th-century chills." (Publishers Weekly)

Valentin’s fourth case immediately draws the reader into its tapestry of the Big Easy in a memorable bygone era. (Kirkus)

[Fulmer's] feel for atmosphere and his increasingly subtle hand with character development keep the series from going stale . . . Early on, this series’ main appeal was its setting, but now it can hold its own with the most character-driven of historical mysteries. (Booklist)

Fans of hard-boiled writers like Raymond Chandler, Bill Pronzini, and James Lee Burke will enjoy Shamus Award winner Fulmer's latest. Highly recommended. (Library Journal)

Fulmer’s evocative prose captures the sights, sounds and smells of 1913 Storyville in his superior 'Lost River'....a testament to the never-ending saga of New Orleans. (USA Today 2009-01-15)
