To further her studies, she spent a year at the University of Bordeaux in the south of France and worked as a teaching and research assistant at UC Riverside, eventually earning a master's degree in the subject.

    [HR][/HR]A Free Man of Color

    [​IMG]

    A lush and haunting novel of a city steeped in decadent pleasures...and of a man, proud and defiant, caught in a web of murder and betrayal.

    It is 1833. In the midst of Mardi Gras, Benjamin January, a Creole physician and music teacher, is playing piano at the Salle d'Orleans when the evenings festivities are interrupted--by murder.

    Ravishing Angelique Crozat, a notorious octoroon who travels in the city's finest company, has been strangled to death. With the authorities reluctant to become involved, Ben begins his own inquiry, which will take him through the seamy haunts of riverboatmen and into the huts of voodoo-worshipping slaves.

    But soon the eyes of suspicion turn toward Ben--for, black as the slave who fathered him, this free man of color is still the perfect scapegoat....

    --Published by Bantam Books, July, 1997.

    [HR][/HR]Fever Season

    [​IMG]

    "Bronze John" stalks through the summer-hot streets of New Orleans in the second Benjamin January mystery. A cholera epidemic has seized New Orleans, sending the upper eschelons of both colored and white society to cooler and safer locations. Benjamin remains in New Orleans to treat the sick and dying, where he becomes tangled with a runaway slave girl named Cora, who is wanted for poisoning her master, Otis Redfern, and stealing several thousand dollars. But Benjamin isn't sure she was truly the culprit. Then Cora goes missing, like several other colored people before her. In searching for Cora, Benjamin meets up with Cora's friend, Rose Vitrac, a free woman of color who runs a school for girls in New Orleans. Rose and Benjamin work to find Cora and untangle the mystery of Otis Redfern's death and Cora's disappearance, helped along the way by the usual suspects of Hannibal and Abishag Shaw. And even when most of the clues fall into place, there are still surprises left. Interestingly, this book was based on a true historical incident, which was fairly horrific in nature, and this is detailed in the afterward.

    --Published by Bantam Books, July, 1998. Named as a New York Times Notable Mystery Book of 1998

    [HR][/HR]Sold Down the River

    [​IMG]

    Penetrating the murkiest corners of glittering New Orleans society, Benjamin January brought murderers to justice in A Free Man of Color, Fever Season, and Graveyard Dust. Now, in Barbara Hambly's haunting new novel, he risks his life in a violent plantation world darker than anything in the city....

    When slave owner Simon Fourchet asks Benjamin January to investigate sabotage, arson, and murder on his plantation, January is reluctant to do any favors for the savage man who owned him until he was seven. But he knows too well that plantation justice means that if the true culprit is not found, every slave on Mon Triomphe will suffer.

    Abandoning his Parisian French for the African patois of a field hand, cutting cane until his bones ache and his musician's hands bleed, Benjamin must use all his intelligence and cunning to find the killer ... or find himself sold down the river.
