RT Rating

New Orleans is again the epicenter in the latest chapter of Handeland's amazingly dark and suspenseful series. This first-person account follows a practical and determined woman as she chases clues that may lead her to either her missing sister or an untimely death. Eerie atmospherics and dark passion intertwine, making this a truly gripping and suspenseful read.

A photo taken in front
of a New Orleans bar is the first
clue that P.I. Anne Lockheart
has in the disappearance of her
sister, Katie, three years earlier. Obsessed with finding out Katie's
fate, Anne takes a job at the Rising Moon bar, working for the enigmatic
John Rodolfo. Anne finds the blind musician and bar owner dangerously attractive. Although he claims no knowledge of Katie, Anne can't
be sure.

Voodoo, curses and werewolves
are suddenly front and center as
Anne finds links to the supernatural wherever she turns. The Rising Moon and John seem to be at the core of
a series of strange disappearances
and killings. A skeptic at first, Anne slowly begins to realize that much more than she ever dreamed is
going bump in the night. (ST. MARTIN'S, Jan., 352 pp., $6.99)
