FBI special agent Lynsee Frost comes
to New Orleans with her supervisor, Jack Navarre, to investigate the disappearance
of five young women from a popular nightclub. Lynsee and Jack have a history that creates sexual tension and job complications.
Long considered haunted, the
Scarlet Oak Manor plantation holds
the secret of not just the present case but earlier deaths and a voodoo curse
as well. Soon these agents are battling an evil they didn't believe could
While there are supernatural thrills
in The Discovery, the relationship between Lynsee and Jack seems forced.
Too much of the story is revealed via flashbacks, which might have been
rectified if the tale was more expansive.
