    Consider Fortune Redding s situation Here stands a CIA Assassin schooled in cultures and traditions so she can infiltrate any locale from the intersecting streets of Beirut to the glass and steel canyons of London s financial district Only now she has to find refuge in the tiny hamlet of Sinful, Louisiana, a few hours from New Orleans, with the cover identity of a townConsider Fortune Redding s situation Here stands a CIA Assassin schooled in cultures and traditions so she can infiltrate any locale from the intersecting streets of Beirut to the glass and steel canyons of London s financial district Only now she has to find refuge in the tiny hamlet of Sinful, Louisiana, a few hours from New Orleans, with the cover identity of a town librarian You see, unfortunately for Ms Redding, an arms dealer named Ahmad has learned her identity and has placed a million dollar bounty on her head While she enjoys the people she has met in Sinful, she still needs stimuli to keep her brain acute in anticipation of that hoped for day when Ahmad is no longer a threat and she can become operational Since she needs greater mental stimulation than the daily crossword puzzle in the newspaper, she looks for challenges and finds one in the library, on the computer for her work station, when she finds a web site entitled This Day in New Orleans and reads of a murder that took place in New Orleans on that particular date, during Mardi Gras, in the early 1900 s Through the internet, she finds newspaper articles made available online, after that web site was compiled, which reveal discrepancies between testimony in the trial for James Reichart, the man accused of the murder and eventually found guilty, and later reports concerning one of the witnesses whose testimony helped convict him As those later reports indicate, that witness may have pursued a life of crime, to coin a term, which was never revealed to the jury and may have affected their verdict Was James Reichart convicted on perjured testimony If so, despite the passage of time, and relying on nothing but her own powers of logic, can Fortune Redding resolve the inconsistencies she has found and determine a plausible scenario for the events that transpired that fateful day in New Orleans There s a saying, Justice delayed is justice denied Yet, even if it s only one person in a library cubicle who learns the actual culprit of a crime, if that one person learns the truth, may we then say that justice has been served
