Editorial Reviews

Review

"...a tight, hair-raising tale -- a spicy gumbo...(of) down-home nastiness. Sex, race, religion...delivered in...hard-hitting prose...(a)too-soon-finished, escape." -- Ethan Boatner, Lavender Magazine, Minn., MN, June 2006

"Haynes...is knowledgeable about the area...people he (writes) about and weaves a story that keeps the reader eagerly turning pages." -- Nancy Hayden, Tahoe Daily Tribune, June 2006

"Lambda Literary (finalist)...a fast paced, page turner captures its readers. That is exactly what...W. Randy Haynes has accomplished with...Cajun Snuff." -- Charles Peer, Outword Magazine, Sacramento, CA Sept. 2006

"The term 'something new' gets overused in blurbs for novels, but in this case may be entirely appropriate." -- Drewey Waynes Gunn, reviewingtheevidence.com, Feb. 2006

Format: Paperback
Having been raised on a bayou in Louisiana, gone to school in Lafayette and lived in New Orleans for 22 years I found Mr. Haynes book fascinating, imaginative and insightful of the darker side of Louisiana Politics, criminal aspects plus the goodness of Southern hospitality. The characters are from every aspect of life in Louisiana, from down home country people through the flamboyant Gallery owner to the bigots, criminals and every other group that populates the landscape.

This is a great murder mystery with many twists and turns. The descriptions of the locations are wonderful with great details. I am looking forward to the next book with Adam Stephens.

Format: Paperback
It took W. Randy Haynes five years to write his first mystery, but the effort was worth it. The first time "out of the gate," as he says, he garnered a selection as a finalist for the prestigious 2006 Lambda Literary Award. Haynes is a disabled Vietnam vet who found time on his hands during the long Lake Tahoe winters. But Haynes is originally a Texan, and graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. He is also a member of the Cherokees of California and started up

a Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Lake Tahoe. He is presently working

on a sequel to CAJUN SNUFF.

Special Agent Adam Stephen is inexplicably tapped by his somewhat boorish boss to investigate the mutilation murder of a U.S. Congressman who happens to be Black. On his way to New Orleans, Adam meets up with a woman named Adaline Fontenot, a widow from New Orleans, who not only opens doors for him during his investigation, but who will change his life forever:

"'Mr. Herndon? I'm Adam Stephen. I really appreciate your talking to me."

Adam handed over the letter of introduction.

'Come in.' The man unlocked the office door and turned on the lights. The office was unsophisticated but functional. Herndon took a seat behind the desk and motioned for Adam to sit in a chair. 'So, you're a friend of Ms. Fontenot, huh? How did you get so highly connected?'

'It was an accident. We met on a flight to New Orleans, and I've visited her home since. She's well-known in the state?'

'You could say that. Ada is the power behind the progressive politics here in Louisiana. She prefers to work behind the scenes and avoids publicity.

This is an excellent mystery that introduces a new hero, who I hope will appear in a series of books. The atmosphere will draw you in. I am looking forward to the next book.
