Book Description


Disillusioned and bitter, hardened Pittsburgh cop Franco Patrese leaves police work and his birth town behind him. Accepting a job in the New Orleans FBI office, he comes to a city steeped in a dark, corrupt heritage. A beautiful woman approaches Patrese with whispers of human sacrifice. Two days later, she lies dismembered in a pool of blood—surrounded by voodoo symbols.

New Orleans homicide detective Selma Fawcett doesn’t hide her dislike of the FBI intruding on her turf . . . or her distrust of anyone not born in the Big Easy. But a second similar murder forces them to work together . . . or fail. Their suspects range from unscrupulous politicians in high places to a ruthless woman who claims to be the reincarnation of the long-dead voodooienne Marie Laveau. Both Selma and Franco are the outsiders now, journeying into the dangerous heart of darkness, a poisonous miasma of secrecy and corruption. From the French Quarter to Natchez and the Bayou, they are now the tainted ones: two good cops, targeted by an unimaginably malevolent force. . . .
