Murder in the shadows… New Orleans, 1902.
A killer haunts the streets of New Orleans, eviscerating men’s bodies. The murders could cost madam Trula Boudreaux the haven she’s built for herself and her girls. Trula needs help but she’s not prepared for Zeke Barnes, the charming would-be savior who appears at her door.
Zeke Barnes is in Louisiana to investigate violent murders but he can’t help but be enchanted by the mysterious woman who runs an exclusive brothel. Caught between his duty and his growing fascination with Trula, Zeke must face the ghosts in his past if he hopes to survive.
With each new murder, the danger grows. Can the unlikely pair catch a killer or will the dark magic that swirls through the city’s street claim their lives?
