The July 2006 issue of Library Journal offers high praise for Tony Dunbar’s Tubby Meets Katrina from NewSouth Books, noting that “Dunbar’s portrayal of people putting their lives together and helping others is remarkable.” From the review:

“In Dunbar’s seventh Tubby Dubonnet mystery, the New Orleans lawyer-turned-sleuth returns home from Bolivia the day before Hurricane Katrina hits. While he is trying to stay alive in the devastated city, a psychopathic killer escapes from jail and heads to New Orleans to target Tubby’s daughter. Dunbar’s latest novel is not a true mystery but more of an action tale of survival. Once again displaying his fine command of storytelling, Dunbar takes a major tragedy and shows how anyone can learn to survive and eventually begin to live again. This may be the first novel dealing with Katrina and will not be the last, but Dunbar’s portrayal of people putting their lives together and helping others is remarkable. Dunbar lives in the new New Orleans.”

Tubby Meets Katrina is available directly from NewSouth Books, Amazon, or your local or online book retailer.
