More About the Author
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.

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.Read more ›
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!
