The ghosts of New Orleans history are alive and well in this truly scary and beautifully inspired novel. The story begins by drawing readers into the midst of a horrific murder, and rarely slows for more than a scene. The characters are easy to identify with, and will take the reader on the journey of a lifetime, through times long gone but that still have a presence today. The author has done a fabulous job of meshing a truly terrifying idea with the well known and still respected ghosts of New Orleans. It was an honor to read this novel, and it is one I will definitely read again.

Logan Payne knows there is much more going on with the two mutilated bodies recently discovered than anyone knows. When gorgeous reporter Priscilla Hart appears after exposing the unknown story of the murderer to the masses, appearing bruised and bloody and claiming to have been attacked, Logan knows he must overcome his anger to help her. When more bodies appear with similar injuries, Logan must move heaven and earth to stop a killer. To make matters worse, Logan is quickly falling in love with Priscilla. Steamy love, a monstrous killer, time travel, and voodoo mysticism, this book has it all. It will not disappoint.

News reporter, Priscilla Hart, is guilty of using her charm to con Detective Logan Payne out of privileged information for a homicide story she’s covering. But when the killer attacks her, she’s forced to turn to the same man she swindled and beg him for protection.

But as the case heats up, he finds himself torn between giving in to the his smoldering desire for the attractive reporter and distancing himself so he can focus on the biggest murder investigation of his career.
