Nola Céspedes, an ambitious young reporter at the Times-Picayune , finally catches a break: an assignment to write her first full-length feature. While investigating her story, she also becomes fixated on the search for a missing tourist in the French Quarter. As Nola's work leads her into a violent criminal underworld, she's forced to face disturbing truths from her own past and is confronted with the question: In the aftermath of devastation, who is responsible for rebuilding what's been broken?

Vividly rendered in razor-sharp prose, this haunting thriller is a riveting journey of trust betrayed--and the courageous struggle to rebuild. Fast-paced, atmospheric, and with a knockout twist, Hell or High Water features an unforgettable heroine as fascinating and multilayered as New Orleans itself.

Casto provides incredible descriptions of New Orleans and creates a dark and complex character in Nola. This psychological thriller is gritty, but it’s an enthralling read that will be hard to put down.

There's a sequel to "Hell or High Water". If you are curious about what happened next check out "Nearer Home".
