Blood is thicker than water...or so they say. But when blood ties are bound by a tragic past, unraveling them can be deadly.
Hired to find a client's birth mother, New Orleans P.I. Patrice Ribeau discovered moer than smalltown scandal behind the Spanish moss and bayou mist of Port Latanier, Louisiana. There was danger lurking there, and somebody who would stop at nothing-not even voodoo-to bring Patrice's search to an untimely end.
Her one hope in solving the case lay with Alan Lowndes. But behind his captivating gaze and soothing voice, Patrice knew he kept secrets of his own. And with the way he made her feel, she had to wonder if she was in over her head.
