  • Another brilliant book in the Chanse Macleod series. I don't know how Greg Herren does it but he manages to keep this series going and each story is grittier than the last. This one is a seemingly simple disappearance of a woman but as Chanse digs deeper there are so many twists and turns involving big business, big churches and big sums of money. The story builds into a crescendo of intrigue but the ending is not one I could have guessed.And that is the best thing about this story. It kept me g [...]


  • I was trying to read this during my school's SSR period, but wasn't getting very far in such a limited time frame, so I took it with me on my jaunt up to San Francisco during Spring Break. I'm so glad I did.I read this book because it was written by one of my former New Orleans neighbors whom I often find myself missing. I've read a handful of Greg's books, and I've enjoyed each of them. This book, like the rest of his Chanse Macleod Mysteries that I've had the pleasure of reading, is an easy we [...]


  • This did keep you guessing until the end. Lots of local New Orleans out of the way places only someone who lives here knows. Great read!


  • It took me awhile to get interested enough to even list that I was reading this book. In the end, it was pretty good but I'm not yearning to read another one by this author.


  • (Originally reviewed for Love Bytes Same Sex Book Reviews)Welcome to another Chanse MacLeod mystery from Greg Herren. This time Chanse is on the trail of a missing person, but there is a lot more to the story than he is hearing about.Near the end of book five in the series, Chanse meets a young man with impeccable breeding, and they begin dating. I would love to say that Rory and Chanse are in a hot relationship and this book was all about them, but I’d be lying. Rory has a couple bit parts in [...]


  • A really good mystery, with a classic first-person-PI-narrator, but with a twist, since the narrator is gay. However, that isn't a big deal, and it's one of the things that I really liked about the book: gay or black, the characters are just characters, not symbols - which is as good as it is, unfortunately, rare, so that counts as a big plus in my view. Also, the hard-boiled style was done well without going over the top: occasionally, a cold look could 'sterilize a lizard', but it never goes o [...]


  • There are many twists and turns in this book and I have to say I didn't see the outcome. This series just gets better and better. While this series isn't as racy as his Scotty series seems to be, its just as entertaining. I appreciate that Chanse's character isn't written over the top. His life is just as complex and mundane as the rest of us. His assistant and occasional stripper Abby is a fabulous addition to this series. I love her spunk and drive. The story takes place in New Orleans, post K [...]


  • The story of this book was OK, as good as the rest of the series, but the constant use of the phrase "you know" was driving me up the wall. I did a word search and came up with 215 instances of it. Many of them were in the proper use of things such as "You know we'll have to search their computer" or "You know he went to the restaurant first" but at least half if not more were the annoying, "she likes to brag, you know, about her hair, because it's a nice color, you know and the boys all like it [...]


  • If I ever get to visit New Orleans I'm not going to take a tourist guide with me. Instead I am going to be armed with copies of Greg Herren's books. I love the city and the people that he describes and I want to see it and them for myself one day. 'Murder in the Irish Channel' is another first class mystery from an author who knows how to spin a good story. He had me from the start so I read the book in one day. The mystery, which features gay detective Chance MacLeod and is the latest offering [...]


  • Wow, Mr. Herren, you've done it again - completely stumped me!!! I didn't see the end comingd I was looking for the clues throughoutexcellent addition to the series!!! Awesome! I really enjoyed Murder in the Irish Channel by Greg Herren


  • Another excellent entry in the Chanse MacLeod mystery series, which is especially wonderful for the author's deep understanding of New Orleans. The city and surrounding area are not just locations but important characters in all of the books, grounding them in realism, romance, grittiness, and, of course, humidity.


  • This could've been a mainstream mystery except for the fact that the main character is gay. Not much of a romance, but a pretty good mystery. Main bother: Parts of this read like a New Orleans tourist guidebook.




  • Lacks a connection with the life of the PI, Chanse MacLeod, and the rest of the characters were not fully formed enough to involve me in the mystery.


  • I always enjoy Greg Herren and this one is no exception. Good writing, good characters, good twists and turns that keep you guessing and a very satisfactory conclusion to it all.






  • ALWAYS love me some Greg Herren mystery!! He's done it yet again, with a captivating story that is well written and engaging.
