There’s a voodoo woman in New Orleans who knows your darkest secrets
French Quarter paranormal investigator Wyatt Thomas learns he’s permanently linked to the spirit of a man with whom he’d fought a duel during another lifetime. The only person who can free Wyatt from his curse is long-dead voodoo queen Marie Laveaux. To seek her help, he must travel back to Antebellum New Orleans, succeed in his endeavor, or be trapped in the past forever. When Wyatt meets his former lover at the Mulatto Ball, he doesn’t know if he wants to return.
While Wyatt is time traveling, detective Tony Nicosia and U.S. Attorney Eddie Toledo are working for mob boss Frankie Castellano to try and retrieve a stolen cornet given to him by jazz legend Louis Armstrong. Their failure could result in having their throats cut and bodies thrown in the bayou for the gators to eat.
