Midnight on the Mississippi begins the new Secrets of the South Mysteries from bestselling author Mary Ellis. These complex crime dramas follow an investigator's quest to make the world a better place...solving one case at a time.
New Orleans--Hunter Galen, a stock and securities broker, suspects his business partner, James Nowak, may be involved in embezzling their clients' money, but he's reluctant to jeopardize their friendship based on suspicion alone. After James turns up dead, Hunter realizes his unwillingness to confront a problem may have cost James his life.
Nicki Price, a newly minted PI, intends to solve the stockbroker's murder, recover the missing millions from the client accounts, and establish herself in the career she adores. As she ferrets out fraud and deception at Galen Investments, Hunter's fiancee, Ashley Menard, rubs Nicki the wrong way. Nicki doesn't trust the ostentatious woman with an agenda longer than the Mississippi River. Ashley seems to be hiding something, but is Nicki's growing attraction to Hunter--a suspected murderer--her true reason for disliking Ashley?
As they encounter sophisticated shell games, blackmail, and murder, Nicki and Hunter's only option is to turn to God as they search for answers, elude lethal danger, and perhaps discover love along the way.

I was ready for a great suspense book and boy did I get it with Mary's latest. She not only can write Amish fiction but she is an out of this world suspense writer.
Such a twist and a little bit of romance to boot. Not one mystery is solved in this book but two mysteries get solved!
I never put this book down until the very last page I had to know who killed James, and Nicki's daddy. You never saw this coming.
You are going to LOVE this new series if you are a fan of mysteries.
I gave this book 5 stars and I highly recommend this book.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
