Just when Tubby Dubonnet thought it was safe to come back to New Orleans, Hurricane Katrina boils up a rich gumbo of trouble. Tubby rides out the storm okay, but then the levees break, the city floods, and he ends up with thousands of other refugees in the hellish convention center. In the chaos, an escaped psychopath assaults and then stalks Tubby's daughter. The police are no help, and Tubby must use his wits and his connections to protect himself and his family, while trying to restore his home and help bring his beloved city back to life. The fast-paced story includes incisive vignettes of the dangerous days just after Katrina hit and of the frustrating weeks that followed.
