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?

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“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.” AudioFile
