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 possibly exist.
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. (dl $4.99)
