Nola Céspedes, an ambitious young reporter at the
Times-Picayune, finally catches a break: an assignment to write
her first full-length feature. While investigating her story, she
also becomes fixated on the search for a missing tourist in the
French Quarter. As Nola’s work leads her into a violent criminal
underworld, she’s forced to face disturbing truths from her own past
and is confronted with the question: In the aftermath of
devastation, who is responsible for rebuilding what's been broken?
Vividly rendered in razor-sharp prose, this haunting thriller is a riveting journey of trust betrayed—and the courageous struggle to rebuild. Fast-paced, atmospheric, and with a knockout twist, Hell or High Water features an unforgettable heroine as fascinating and multilayered as New Orleans itself.
