Heroine Kate Delaney is about to be thrown headlong into a world filled with voodoo and magic, as well as the ever present human greed and murderous intentions. This book is patented Ross
storytelling, jam-packed with emotion, passion and dark drama!

When Chicago cop Kate Delaney gets word that her estranged sister Tara, aka "Desiree Doucett," committed suicide, she doesn't believe it and assumes it was murder. Frustrated by the cavalier attitude shown by the New Orleans police, Kate decides to find the truth for herself.

Former cop turned P.I. Nick Broussard is in something of a similar situation. While he knew his NOPD dad was on the take, there's no way his father would ever commit suicide. Since Desiree was one of Nick's informants, Kate and Nick join forces. New Orleans has always had its own way of handling the gray areas of life, but in the aftermath of Katrina, the human predators have found fertile ground. Can Kate and Nick find the answers they need -- without getting killed? (POCKET STAR, Mar., 400 pp., $7.50)
