book cover


Andre loves three things most of all: his daddy, his trumpet, and Louis Armstrong.

But when his father is killed on the St. Charles streetcar, and Andre is the only witness, he’ll have to grow up fast.

There is one problem. The boy can’t, or won’t speak—no one is really sure which. Under pressure from all directions, Andre’s silence and eventual disappearance will spark a chain of events that quickly spiral into madness, as authorities try to piece together what happened that day on the streetcar and save Andre’s life.

Thankfully, the boy has friends. Private detectives Felix Herbert, and his crumbling but affable partner David Melancon are on the hunt for the boy, and they’ll need to act fast if they hope to find him before the killer does.

Uptown Blues is the fifth installment of the universally praised Herbert and Melancon mystery series, but it can be read as a standalone novel!
