The Laced Chameleon
Bob Rogers, author

Adult; Mystery/Thriller; (Market)

New Orleans native Francesca Dumas is a quadroon courted by moneyed white men. She leads a sheltered life of elegant gowns and lavish balls until a bullet shatters her dream world. While awaiting arrival of the Union Navy atop a Mississippi River levee April 25, 1862, Francesca’s lover is shot dead. Rain soaked and blood-stained Francesca vows revenge. Conundrums confront Francesca: solve her identity crisis, succeed as a spy, find and defeat a three-time murderer.
Reviews
San Francisco Book Review

"[The Laced Chameleon's] impressive nonfiction cast, which includes [1862] New Orleans political, military, and religious figures, various artists, and entrepreneurs of that era, are surrounded by a host of fictional characters, plus the protagonist, Francesca Dumas. She is beautiful and intelligent, yet naive… Rogers’ well-developed characters comprise highly skilled yet still enslaved African Americans as well as aristocratic Yankees…  his narrative incorporates lighthearted and comedic moments, especially as Francesca and her friends [and] outwit condescending aristocrats…

The Laced Chameleon is a highly recommended read. Rogers succinctly captures it when he states, "In America, race matters. Within the artificial construct of race, color and class have mattered for centuries, and still matter today."

– Anita Lock, San Francisco Book Review
