I loved this book. Sure it is pop lit but it I couldn't put it down once I picked it up. Every chapter left you hanging and you had to continue on. Ate it up like candy. Great character the antagonist - pure ego and heartless. I couldn't wait for him to get what was coming. First Sandra brown - maybe need to look at reading more of her when I want a fast, mindless suspenseful read . ( )

I enjoyed the reading very much. It was fast-paced and gripping. Burke is chasing his nemesis who is held responsible for the death of Burke's best friend and working mate. Burke has to dig deep into the bag of tricks not only to get his nemesis dead but also to solve the problem within the NOPD which has got a mole within there row. ( )

Typical contemporary suspense from Brown. The characters make or break her books. ( )

This book was different from the other Sandra Brown books I have read. There seemed to be a lot less romance and a lot more action and mystery. I really liked it. Her characters are well rounded and the story flows flawlessly. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0446605581, Mass Market Paperback)

Precise details change with the ages, but you can bet that the first story ever written had something to do with revenge. Sandra Brown continues the tradition with her latest brick of a book, Fat Tuesday. After a gruff 'n' tuff New Orleans narc, Burke Basile, mistakenly blows a hole in his partner's noggin, he vows revenge--not only on the thug who was directly involved, but also on the sleazy kingpin behind it all. And in finest cop-drama tradition, he vows to do it outside the law. Fat Tuesday only begins to cook after Basile turns in his badge and--mixing charm and coercion--enlists various underworld elements in his cause. It's all a little B movie-ish at times, but for every hooker with a heart of gold, there's a fresher character like Gregory, the homosexual hustler who uses his drama degree to Basile's benefit. The villains are bad (can't go wrong with a lawyer), the heroine good, and the hero a big, wounded warrior looking for true love. What's not to like?
