The second book in the Skip Langdon mystery series by Edgar Award-winning author Julie Smith.
“Gritty and Witty … Langdon is a splendid female heroine … The Axeman’s Jazz is a mesmerizing story.” -People
It’s a steamy August in New Orleans and a murderer has borrowed the name of the Axeman, a serial killer who roamed the city in 1919. The modern-day Axeman has strangled a young woman and stabbed an elderly man, beside whose body a teddy bear is found. The letter “A” is scrawled near both corpses in lipstick and in blood. Both victims, it develops, were members of 12-point recovery programs modeled on Alcoholics Anonymous; the killer may be using the groups’ anonymity as a shield.
Tall, funny, social-misfit Skip Langdon, is now a homicide detective assigned to the Axeman team. Risking her life, Skip must get close to suspects, among them beautiful but ditzy Di, a New Era devotee; the very angry Alex, “a walking testosterone bomb” who writes self-help books; Sonny Gerard, a stressed-out second-year medical student; and Missy, Sonny’s overmothering girlfriend. As Skip threads her fascinated way from one self-help group to another, she finds she has more in common with the twelve-steppers than just the murder. And she knows what they do not: that among their anonymous numbers is a deadly murderous, and dangerously attractive — psychopath….
“With an acute ear for New Orleans speech and a sharp eye for the city’s social stratification, Smith keeps the reader’s heart palpitating to the end of this mystery of unusual depth.” -Publishers Weekly
“The Axeman’s Jazz is the kind of book that leaves you torn between running out and devouring all the other mysteries in the series, or spacing them out as periodic special treats. Julie Smith garnered great attention, including an Edgar for Best First Mystery, with her initial entry in this series, the 1990 publication of New Orleans Mourning featuring police detective Skip Langdon … in New Orleans, of course. The Axeman’s Jazz is the second of the series and even better than the first.” -BookLoons Reviews
If you like Laura Lippman, Sue Grafton, Linda Barnes, Nevada Barr, and Marcia Muller, Julie Smith’s your new best friend.

Some secrets can come back to haunt you…
Principal Emily Taylor feels safe in the friendly little town of Burchill—until she finds a body in her school. The murder of caretaker Nathaniel Ryeburn brings back memories she’d rather forget and plunges Emily into a mystery that involves a secret diary, an illegal puppy mill and a murderer innocently disguised as an ordinary citizen.
As fear rips through the traumatized town, Emily’s investigation inadvertently leads the police to her door, and to her husband Langford, who is hiding a secret of his own. It becomes clear to Emily that many of Burchill’s residents are merely wearing masks. And it’s time for those masks to be ripped away…and for a killer’s identity to be revealed.

Worse Than Being Alone is a riveting tale involving multiple cons, a vicious murder, romance, betrayal, and escape as it vividly explores just how far all of us are prepared to go to avoid being alone.
Kitty and Roni are building their fledgling investigative agency by following workers’ comp cheats. Every PI’s dream of catching real criminals seems to be coming true when they begin to suspect one of their targets is engaged in more nefarious activities than just a bogus comp claim. Their cat and mouse game gets twisted when they realize they are the ones being stalked.
A personal and potentially lethal inquiry emerges after Roni’s father marries a woman with a checkered past, and they fear he has found his Worse Than Being Alone.

As that case boils over, along comes the most talented con artist of them all. After his angry employer hires them to check him out, Kitty and Roni slowly come to realize he has the makings of a master criminal. They uncover numerous identities along with multiple workers’ comp claims. Then here are his almost daily trips to the same bank wearing different disguises.
Surprises abound as Kitty and Roni break up a sex slave ring, thwart a bank robbery, nab a shoplifter, and document a Black Widow’s treachery. A sudden death leaves them stunned as they second-guess their activities, forcing them to confront a murderer.

When did juicing gain such popularity? Juicing has been around as long as fruits and vegetables. Although modern juicers weren’t available in the early homestead days, juicing was done through primitive ways to preserve excess garden bounty and strengthen people who were weak or ill. Jack Lalanne, the juicing and health icon, was born in 1914 and although food was simpler back in that day, he had an inclination toward sugar and bad eating habits. His transformation as a young man made way for his revolutionary juicing equipment and health message to millions:
“It seems that everything that we put into our body is cooked, and I believe that too much cooking kills a good deal of the nutrients. Giving your body the right fuel is like giving your automobile the right gas. If you put water in the gas tank it sputters and dies. If you put raw and vital foods in your body, you’re going to feel alive and vital.” –Jack Lalanne
Drinking freshly created juice is the best way to get concentrated nutrients and vitamins into your body and absorbed by your body. When you extract juice from fresh fruits and vegetables, you get raw vitamins, minerals, and disease-fighting antioxidants in their purest form. Once you begin juicing and using it as a regular part of your diet, you’ll feel energized, you’ll lose weight, bring blood sugar levels down, and feel healthy.
