In Bourbon Street Blues and Jackson Square Jazz, Greg Herren introduced the wickedly naughty-and Bradley, who's never met a drink he didn't want, a deCAence he could resist, or a hunky trick he won't treat to a little bit of himself It's Carnival time in New Orleans, and Scotty Bradley, ex go-go boy turned private eye, is looking forward to relaxing with his boyfrien.

Bourbon Street Blues book. This is Greg Herren second detective series featuring Scotty Brady. I found the writing awkward and didn't really like the campy attitude of the first person narrator. I was very disappointed because I really wanted to like it.

Native boy Scotty Bradley knows how to bend his hometown's every unwritten rule

Boyish, irresistible Scotty knows how to bend the unwritten rules of his native town, New Orleans. A personal trainer by day, and occasional bar-top dancer by night, he's doing fine until one of his clients is murdered.

But then Scotty discovers one of his best clients in front of his Decatur Street apartment, shot through the head, execution style.

Bomb threats, murder, a tiger, animal rights, missing money-all in a day’s work for Scotty Bradley, . For Tony Martin, being a senior means being a star on the football team, classes to get through, hanging out with his friends-and dating Candy Dixon. And once he graduates, he's getting out of Kansas and never looking back.

He was also nominated in the mystery category in 2003 for Murder in the Rue Dauphine, in 2004 for Bourbon Street Blues in 2005 for Jackson Square Jazz, in 2007 for Mardi Gras Mambo, in 2010 for Murder in the Garden District and in 2011 for Vieux Carré Voodoo, in the anthologies category in 2005 for Shadows of the Night: Queer Tales of.

Bourbon Street Blues introduces Dick Dansoir, personal trainer and occasional go-go dancer at the boys' bars in the Big Easy. He is irresistible, especially for a guy whose real name is Milton "Scotty" Bradley. Of course, he keeps in shape, which helps as the book's g-time plot unfolds. A friend and client turns up shot, execution style, in front of his place.

During New Orleans's biggest gay celebration, personal trainer and exotic dancer Scotty finds his life taking a deadly turn when one of his best clients is murdered, an old friend returns with a desperate request, and a mysterious FBI agent shadows his every move. Reprint. 10,000 first printing.

I was attracted to this book for one reason, mainly, outside of the gay theme.. and what was it's setting: Modern Day New Orleans, Louisianna. I live not to far from New Orleans and spent many a night, and Decadence (a Labor Day Holiday in New Orleans, when this story is set), in New Orleans in the very clubs he talks about. That's right, his clubs and their locations are far from fictional. If you've been to New Orleans, you know the Oz, and directly accross from it the Bourbon Pub the Parade Upstairs, the Hit Parade Across the street where you can buy all sorts of clothing in emergency situations, and next door the Bourbon Orleans (A Hotel Popular with the Gay Crowd in New Orleans, especially during holidays), all on the corner of St. Ann and the infamous Bourbon Strees, just a few blocks from Jackson Square. This story is about a Personal Trainer/Go-Go Dancer at the Bourbon Pub who gets into a situation that may be a little over his head. (BTW, if The front cover is the Bourbon Pub, the artist had obviously never been there.. ther are no short tables and chairs it's all bar tables, bar, and barstools, and Men on the bar shaking their stuff) ([...] [...])
This author MUST Live in New Orleans because the most exiting thing for me was sayin "I Know where that is!" which isn't often for me that I can do that.
But aside from the setting, the story is told very well. I could not put the book down. The actual story took a minute or two before actually getting started. It took a little while to set up, but once it did.. you were hooked. I did find a few of the lines written into the Story a little corny, as well as the overall premise (that is, once you learn what is REALLY going on)... however, getting over the few corny elements. This book was a true treasure. The Author demonstrated his knowlege of Gay life in New Orleans very well (you can tell he's been there himself, for sure). I have ordered the second book, in hopes that it will follow along just as well. I hope we get a good series of Scotty and his NOLA Adventures. Greg Herren just got a fan... Keep us interested, and keep writing to keep us reading! I'm ready.

If your enjoy a good mystery book with characters that come to life, then this is a book for you. The characters come alive, many of them gay, in exotic New Orleans, Louisiana. Very readable, down to earth writing that I could recommend to anyone. This is the first book in a series by Greg Herren and I have read them all. Another series follows this one and I plan to read them as well!

I got the book for my friend's birthday.

Greg herron is from New Orleans and has won numerous awards for his writings.

His latest book is about a hollywood power couple that moves to the Big Easy and all hell breaks loose.

The stories are all about New Orleans with a twist.

Having just been to New Orleans the storyline of the book captured my attention. Heren has created a great character with Scotty Bradley and made me feel like the city was a character as well. The plot seems to tie up quickly and I felt a little robbed of some unfinished parts but over all I did enjoy this novel. I guess maybe I wanted more and will have to wait for the next installment of Scotty "Milton" Bradley and his personal trainer/GoGo boy exploits. Thanks Greg for a great read!

Welcome the return of author Greg Herren with a thrilling new mystery novel, a superb new fictional hero, and what appears to be the first of an exciting and somewhat lighter new series. Last year, he introduced us to Chanse MacLeod in MURDER IN THE RUE DAUPHINE, which was one of last year's best gay works of fiction. (And if you haven't read it yet, buy it along with this new book.) And this year, he tops it with M. (Scotty) Bradley in BOURBON STREET BLUES.
Scotty is a buff, boyish personal trainer and part-time exotic bar dancer with a Day-Glo thong stuffed with wet and sweaty currency. ...He's also the personification of gay New Orleans - while he might be a [tramp], but he's not a [tramp]. I fell in love with him immediately - long before he finished his introductory prologue. You should also know that he has a most unusual and loving extended family, and he's somewhat physic. His tarot cards play an important part in the plotting of the action.
As to the plot itself, that's really something that you'll enjoy more by discovering it for yourself. Let's just say it combines the gay delight of Southern Decadence weekend with murder, sinister plots, political intrigue, hot-bod boys, mysterious daddies with scars, skinheads, religious fanatics, FBI agents and a few sexual assignations. You know - all the things that make the Big Easy all that it can be.
Unfortunately, I also have a minor quibble about the book. The first edition of this book contains an annoying editing or proofing error in the background story of Jeremy. When we first meet him on page 35 we learn that he had mysteriously left New Orleans a year earlier without canceling his scheduled training session with Scotty, and now on reappearing he had shaved his head and gotten an arm band tattoo during his absence. However, when we see him the next day on page 130, we're told that "his hair hadn't been combed and that it looked as if he'd been running his fingers through it a bit to much." And the details on disappearance have be change, too. Now I have always been my own worst proofreader, but surely author or his editosr should have noticed the contradictions in the story. Sure, it's a personal quibble, but it detracts from an otherwise well crafted work. Hopefully, it will be corrected in the many reprints this book deserves.
The error and my quibble really don't merit any deduction of points from my ***** rating or from my recommendation of this book. It was a pleasure to read this book (almost nonstop.) And I repeat what I said in my review of his first book; Greg Herren is an extremely talented and promising author, and I look forward to his next book - soon hopefully?
