Ethan Brown (GSAS '98) - Shake the Devil Off

Ethan Brown has a new book out, Shake the Devil Off: A True Story of the Murder That Rocked New Orleans. It tells the tale of Zack Bowen and Addie Hall, a French Quarter couple who died in a gruesome murder-suicide not long after Hurricane Katrina. “It’s not every book where you have a voodoo priestess and George Bush as characters,” Mr. Brown told the Times-Picayune. Bestselling author George Pelecanos praised Shake the Devil Off and said

Ethan Brown examines a notorious murder case, rescues it from the talons of tabloid journalists, and comes up with something much more than a true crime book. Shake the Devil Off is a gripping suspense story, an indictment of the military’s treatment of our soldiers in and out of war, and a celebration of the resilience and worth of a great American city.

Ethan is also the author of Queens Reigns Supreme: Fat Cat, 50 Cent, and the Rise of the Hip Hop Hustler and Snitch: Informants, Cooperators, and the Corruption of Justice.
