"A tough, no-nonsense detective. . .edgy, clever!" --Beverly Barton
She suffered a terrifying coma. She survived a serial killer's obsession. Now homicide detective Claire Morgan hopes to forget the nightmare of her Missouri past in the city of New Orleans. But when a body is discovered near her home, her darkest fears come rushing back. . .
Surrounded by candles and skulls, the victim is bound to an altar like a human sacrifice. More disturbing to Claire is the voodoo doll in the woman's hands. A doll pierced with pins and wearing a picture on its face. A picture of Claire Morgan. . .
Claire doesn't believe in voodoo. But she does believe in the power of superstition to warp a person's mind and feed a killer's madness. It is here, in the muddy bayous where it festers, that Claire must face her fear head on--and meet the man who's marked her for death. . .
