This is the second installment in the Bayou Series and one that doesn't let up on the action. Alyssa LaBlanc (CoCo's Sister from Bayou Justice) has returned home because her grandmere has had a heart attack. She really doesn't consider it home because of the memories it holds. Jack Devereaux has come to town to help his friend, Bubba, the police chief. The chief seems to feel there is a mole in his midst. Now he is in the hospital fighting for his life. Alyssa and Jack work together to dig for the truth of what happened to Bubba but find much more than they expected.
Bayou Corruption was better than Bayou Justice. There was so much going on in this story but never too much to keep it straight. Alyssa is a great heroin in that she is strong but struggles with her self-worth. She also struggles with self imposed guilt over the loss of her parents. Jack is a great hero. He's strong and yet very tender where Alyssa is concerned. The other thing I really enjoyed about the story is it picks up where you left off in Bayou Justice. You see all the characters you met in book 1 so it almost reads like one big story.
Looking forward to reading Book 3, Bayou Judgment.
