When a former PI is invited to a gathering of New Orleans chefs, murder is on the menu in this “well written, sharply observed” mystery (The New York Times). Sophisticated Boston Brahmin Michael Spraggue will never forget the flaky strawberry tarts Dora Levoyer made for him when he was a little boy. A French immigrant who has worked for Michael’s eccentric aunt Mary for decades, Dora has an old-world sensibility, an elegant palate, and a past that cannot be spoken of. Deserted by her husband long ago, she has fought hard to put him out of her mind. But when Dora is invited to a banquet held by the finest chefs in New Orleans, she sees a man who looks just like her missing spouse. Before she can confront him, he is found with a chef’s knife embedded in his heart—and every piece of evidence points to Dora as the killer. At his aunt Mary’s behest, Michael hops the first plane down to New Orleans—a mysterious city where the dead, like the living, have dangerous secrets. Cities of the Deadis the 4th book in the Michael Spraggue Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

In Cities Of The Dead, pop-culture writer Si?n Smith embraces what remains of the spirit of Jack Kerouac as he wanders through seven landmark cities in search of coffee, culture and adventure. From Florence to New York, Paris to Warsaw, he digs up the road less travelled and finds?amongst many other curios?a mermaid who has been assaulted more times than she deserves, a rock star with a stolen head and a corporate accountant on a desperate quest to forget his wife. The result is a collection of lucid essays that reveal a world distracted by the noise of its own making in which few take the time to see what is actually happening beneath their nose. Written during various trips around the globe, Cities of the Dead is hard-boiled travel writing for anybody who never wanted to read a guide book in the first place.

Pilgrimage places anthropological works on a privileged platform for religious studies. The origin of built environment sets apart a platform for worship. It contains the dichotomy of life and death, striving towards the spirit of a dead that may or may not be religious. It is a soul searching process, a coming to terms with hopes and disillusions. Human situations in the flow of globalised urban areas draw together primal human search and economic considerations. The sacred and the profane, the belief in miracles and the management of both, necessitate fresh search of urban pilgrimage.
