In New Orleans, the intersection between the past and the present is all too often deadly. Archaeologist Faye Longchamp and her excavating team are horrified when a corpse surfaces that’s far too new to be an archaeological find. Faye and her fiancé, Joe Wolf Mantooth, are drawn into the investigation by a detective who believes their professional expertise is critical to the case. They quickly learn that trouble swirled around the victim, Shelly Broussard, like winds around the still, quiet eye of a hurricane. Is Shelly’s heroic rescue work in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina the key to her death? Or does the sheaf of photos in her work files hold the answer?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Engaging…Passages from a book about the Katrina disaster by a local author and extracts from the memoirs of a 19th-century military engineer provide insights and historical perspective. Faye’s landlady, a part-time voodoo-mambo or priestess, adds spice.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Cassandra Campbell’s atmospheric reading keeps the listener engaged as she seamlessly alters her pace as she moves between historical extracts and modern-day events. Voodoo, attempted murder, and details of post-Katrina New Orleans also enrich the plot. Series fans will enjoy the development in Faye’s relationship with her fiancé, Joe Wolf Mantooth.”

    " 2.5 stars. I picked out this book because I was going to New Orleans. It was a day-long light mystery read. Characters and plot were fairly interesting, but not inspiring or gripping. Not much more to say. I probably wouldn't read others in this series. "
