Description

"Urban realism meets dark fantasy in this spine-tingling [and] wonderfully creepy thriller of a ghost story" exploring New Orleans history (Publishers Weekly, starred review). Max Corbett has returned to New Orleans for the funeral of his former girlfriend, Gabrielle Doucette, but between the destruction wrought by Hurricane Katrina and the devastation of his ruined relationship, the city feels alien. At Gabrielle's graveside, Max meets a man who tells him of a real magic practitioner—not some Bourbon Street phony—who could open a window to the past and send a warning to Gabrielle. Maybe Max can even deliver the warning in person? The man offers Max a cheap map and sends him on his way. But it turns out this quest is not so easy. When Max comes to his first stop, he is drawn into the fabric of history to witness dark and violent periods. And with each passing step, a grim conspiracy is revealed... "Golden and Lebbon vividly evoke the rich, enduring character of New Orleans, as well as spinning a compelling fantasy yarn that builds momentum as Max works his way through the city's history." —Booklist
