13. Ran Away, by Barbara Hambly

This is the fourth I've read in a series of books set in New Orleans, early 1800's before Civil War, main character being Benjamin January, a free man of color. The culture and history of the time are colorfully and skillfully woven into the stories of crime solving by January, a physician and musician. I was pleasantly surprised after reading the first two, that the author finds fresh characters, scenery, and cultural references for each book.
