In New Orleans 1930s, the Crescent City; There is an armed standoff between Louisiana State Troopers and New Orleans Police; An art swindle that may end in murder; A dead man who may not be; Smugglers working the Bayou; And someone wants Jonas dead.
Jonas Watcher arrives to determine if Martin Stanton is really dead. Someone is tailing him to make sure he doesn’t find out. The investigation takes him from the French Quarter to its surrounding Bayou, where Jonas discovers that all the criminals aren’t in the city, and not all the reptiles in the Bayou are on four legs. If he’s going to stay alive, Jason will have to rely on “Invisibles” that aren’t his own and a Colt 44 that is.
“The Case of the Bourbon Street Hustler” is the second novel in the Jonas Watcher Detective Adventure series. Martin Stanton is dead. As dead as a coffin nail, isn’t he?

About the Author
I am Gene Poschman, born June 6, 1947, my parents three-year celebration of US troops landing on Normandy. I married my high school sweetheart and we are still together, more from her understanding than any greatness upon my part. Writing took a back seat as I wrote white papers, news-letters, and taught others how to live with computers. I am now a retired Programmer Analyst Consultant and I write Fiction. My current project is a series of Detective Adventure Mystery novels circa 1930s. You might classify them as light Film Noir in the style of Dashiell Hammett or Raymond Chandler with a "romantic" edge. Think of "Castle" in the genre of 1930 film noir, but as a gifted Private Detective. The series is called "Jonas Watcher". I have self-published four books, "The Case of the Running Bag" and "The Case of the Bourbon Street Hustler", "The Case of the Jade Dragon", and "The Case of the Dead Detective". Anything else about me is subject to change on a whim.
