When dead bodies turn up in the bayou near Andre Gascon's plantation, he hires private investigator Morgan Kirkland to find the truth. The locals believe a supernatural jaguar that kills in the night is to blame for the deaths, but Andre and Morgan are convinced a flesh-and-blood killer reigns over the darkness. When an ancient voodoo curse draws the couple into the past of two dead lovers, they realize the bayou holds more than one mystery. Voodoo curses, sinister warnings and tormented heroes make Rebecca York's gothic Spellbound (4) a compelling and spooky page-turner.
