New York Times Bestseller A Southern Living Book of the Year “Part murder case, part corruption exposé, and part Louisiana noir” (New York magazine), Murder in the Bayou chronicles the twists and turns of a high-stakes investigation into the murders of eight women in a troubled Louisiana parish. Between 2005 and 2009, the bodies of eight women were discovered around the murky canals and crawfish ponds of Jennings, Louisiana, a bayou town of 10,000 in the heart of the Jefferson Davis parish. The women came to be known as the Jeff Davis 8, and local law enforcement officials were quick to pursue a serial killer theory, opening a floodgate of media coverage and stirring a wave of panic across Jennings’ class-divided neighborhoods. The Jeff Davis 8 had been among society’s most vulnerable—impoverished, abused, and mired with mental illness. They engaged in sex work as a means of survival. And their underworld activity frequently occurred at a decrepit no-tell motel called the Boudreaux Inn. As the cases went unsolved, the community began to look inward. Rumors of police corruption and evidence tampering, of collusion between street and shield, cast the serial killer theory into doubt. But what was really going on in the humid rooms of the Boudreaux Inn? Why were crimes going unsolved and police officers being indicted? What had the eight women known? And could anything be done do stop the bloodshed? Mixing muckraking research and immersive journalism over the course of a five-year investigation, Ethan Brown reviewed thousands of pages of previously unseen homicide files to posit what happened during each victim’s final hours. “Brown is a man on a mission...he gives the victims more respectful attention than they probably got in real life” (The New York Times). Murder in the Bayou is the story of an American town buckling under the dark forces of poverty, race, and class division—and a lightning rod for justice for the daughters it lost. “A must-read for true-crime fans” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Im Sumpf des Verbrechens – ein amerikanischer Albtraum Nur wenigen Autoren gelingt es, einen Thrillerplot mit poetischer Eindringlichkeit zu verbinden. Daniel Woodrell ist mit seiner Bayou-Trilogie ein solches Meisterwerk geglückt. Folgen Sie ihm in die schwülen Sümpfe Louisianas. Korruption, Gewalt, Rassismus, Armut und der unbedingte Wille zum Überleben zeichnen die Welt Woodrells aus. Was an Woodrells Anatomie des amerikanischen Albtraums fasziniert, ist nicht nur die packende, sprachlich virtuose Schilderung von Kriminalität und Milieu, sondern seine Kunst, in den getriebenen Figuren, den Außenseitern und Verlierertypen, immer wieder Menschlichkeit aufblitzen zu lassen.
