About the Author

In "Never Too Late: A Prosecutor’s Story of Justice in the Medgar Evers Murder Case" (Scribner 2001), Bobby DeLaughter—the assistant district attorney portrayed by Alec Baldwin in Rob Reiner’s "Ghosts of Mississippi"—took readers through his fascinating, real-life journey in bringing to justice the assassin of civil rights pioneer and hero Medgar Evers decades after the murder. Among readers’ reviews of "Never Too Late": “[A] great read, so compelling I could not put it down…. Mr. DeLaughter is widely described as very private, but in his writing he and his experience are so accessible the reader feels as if s/he is there every step of the way…. [A]n intelligent and inspiring work that should not be missed.” Molly B. Nolan “[A]n excellent and poignant book.” Schmerguls “Well written and engaging!” BookEnthusiast “DeLaughter, a fluid and powerful writer, takes us deep into the heart of evil….” Barry Bradford “Vivid words paint a clear picture of…irrational hate….” C.W. Emblom Inside the Labyrinth is Bobby DeLaughter’s debut novel, an erotic thriller in which he exerts that same vividness to paint a clear portrait of a sexual predator serial killer, taking the reader deep into the mind and soul of evil, lust and power. It is a story of good and evil, love and heartache, and not without the occasional well-placed relief of humor. DeLaughter so skillfully draws readers into his characters’ circumstances, personalities, and aspirations, it is impossible not to become invested in their lives. The victims are not mere statistics or literary props, and when they die it becomes our loss and resulting void. The journey DeLaughter now takes us on is not merely one from his roots of Jackson, Mississippi to his new home along the narrow streets and alleys of the famous French Quarter of New Orleans, but into a world of darkness that somehow flourishes in the plain sight of light, for malevolence is concealed behind many deceptive visages. Inside life’s many labyrinths one never knows what lurks around the next twisted turn.

More About the Author

Bobby DeLaughter was born February 28, 1954, in Vicksburg, Mississippi, but grew up in the state's capital city of Jackson. He secured an undergraduate degree from Ole Miss in 1975 (majors in history and political science, minor in psychology), and graduated from the Ole Miss Law School in 1977. Over a career spanning three decades, DeLaughter was a criminal defense attorney, prosecutor, and trial judge.

As portrayed by acclaimed actor Alec Baldwin in Rob Reiner's movie, "Ghosts of Mississippi," Bobby DeLaughter was the assistant district attorney who re-prosecuted white supremacist Byron De La Beckwith for the 1963 assassination of Mississippi civil rights leader Medgar Evers. DeLaughter later authored a memoir about the re-investigation and trial, "Never Too Late: A Prosecutor's Story of Justice in the Medgar Evers Murder Case" (Scribner 2001). His closing argument in the trial is one of only ten selected and featured in "Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury: Greatest Closing Arguments in Modern Law," edited by H. Caldwell et al (Scribner 1998); and his successful prosecution of the case is included in "Famous Trials: Cases That Made History," by Frank McLynn (Reader's Digest 1995). His career in law ended in 2009, with a federal conviction of obstruction of justice, for giving a false statement to FBI agents.

Bobby DeLaughter and his wife now live in New Orleans, Louisiana, where he has resumed writing. His debut novel, "Inside the Labyrinth: A Bo Landry Erotic Thriller," is available exclusively from Amazon.

Bobby DeLaughter has roots in both Mississippi and New Orleans, and this page turner does as well. Readers should start with the opening remarks, his "Author's Note/Reader Advisory", where DeLaughter warns us that this will be a journey to the heart of darkness. He does not fail in this regard; however, nothing is ever gratuitous. This is not your average "serial killer" novel, nor is it derivative in it's execution. DeLaughter's extensive experience with the criminal justice system, as a prosecutor and a judge, has allowed him to afford us insights often missing with lesser works. There are true twists and turns, and the outcomes are not intuitively discerned from the beginning. As my personal litmus test, I downloaded this book to all my personal devices, including my phone, so that I would have ready access at all times. Well done, Bobby! Let's hope you are busy working on the second Bo Landry thriller.

Labeled “an erotic thriller,” Bobby DeLaughter’s novel Inside the Labyrinth is so much more. A character driven novel that introduces Bo Landry, private investigator, it also plumbs the depth of evil and the war waged by the forces of good. That the novel was released during Lent seems appropriate: many of the characters are soul searchers, full of doubt, sure that they must do better as human beings. Even in their darkest moments, however, they recognize their responsibility to, and are blessed by, the role of community.
Not so the serial killer who says with relish “I am who I am.” It is his knowledge of what rules him without restraints that is so terrifying. He knows mankind in a chilling way that it does not know itself, realizing “how blinded people are by mazes of their own construction: their preconceptions, greed, hatred, and bigotry.”
Ultimately, one of the novel’s major themes is redemption through suffering. And while the reader’s allegiance will go immediately to Bo, there are other characters of honor who gain our attention: Tom Davis, circuit court judge, who questions how to satisfy one part of suffering humanity without forgetting the suffering of all, a question that has permeated the human condition since the beginning of time. You will admire Tom’s struggles to do as Jefferson said we must “to bridge the chasm between “rights” and what is right,” and you will regret his connection to the serial killer.
Ambrose the monsignor at St. Louis Cathedral with his insightful messages of hope, his beliefs put into action to help a struggling community, also functions as a mouth piece for the author.

Inside the Labyrinth is a book that I could not put down-a page turner that I finished in one night of late reading. Even though the theme is one of spine chilling gore, it is laced with history and philosophy. It felt like I was wandering the streets of the French Quarter and Uptown New Orleans. The character of Bo Landry is well developed with many facets and flaws. I want to read more about his NOLA exploits. Great job Bobby. Please write another one.

The descriptions of place are very important to me in a novel. I need to be able to feel the place, experience the smells, sounds and aura of the place. DeLaughter does that for you in this novel. The characters also have depths and foibles that allow you to get to know and care about them. The erotica is secondary; the thrill and suspense make this a real page turner.

Enjoyed the book very much. Hard to put down when I started reading. I could picture in my mind Bo, the main character, as he went about his daily activities. Since I am from the area always love books that are set in LA and MS. Cannot wait for the sequel or another book from Mr. DeLaughter.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. Although it is labeled as an erotic thriller, it focuses more on the thriller aspect. The parts that are considered erotic are more a small part of the acts of a killer, not the rambling bedroom scenes that are in so many kindle books these days.

There is some graphic violence, so be prepared for it before reading, but it all ties in well with the story. I thought the author did an excellent job of developing the characters. The dialogue was well written and engaging.

The author's description of New Orleans is spot on. I have been to many of the places in the French Quarter that are mentioned, and the vivid descriptions took me back there.

This is a great book for readers that enjoy realistic mystery thrillers that let you into the serial killer's mind as well as the cop's mindset. An excellent first novel by this author. Good job!

I really liked this book. The characters were well developed and I love Bo !! I didn't figure out the killer right away, which is always a bonus. I can't wait for the second book.
