Elysian Dreams: Volume Two of Crescent City by Jack Caldwell
2004. Emma has married George, but the workaholic surgeon is neglecting his young wife. When she meets the smooth-talking Frank Church, her marriage is endangered. Marianne finds love with Chris and begins a singing career, but a figure out of her past is doing everything in his power to crush her dreams. Elizabeth is successful in business but not in love, and her job puts her face-to-face with William for the first time in five years; the man she almost destroyed, and who still owns her heart.
Meanwhile, NOPD captain Richard Fitzwilliam continues his crusade to bring down the one felon that has eluded him: the drug dealing murderer Greg “G-Daddy” Wickham, now more dangerous than ever.
Everyone is reaching for their own Elysian dream, but for those who dare live on the Gulf Coast, there is a price to pay. The life-giving waters can also be the birthplace of monsters…
