"New Orleans, 1858. Although it is carnival time, Her Majesty's Consul, Dick Macrae, isn't in a party mood. Stalked by an unknown assailant, Macrae crosses paths with the Creole society dame Madame de Sancerre, and her famously beautiful daughter. But before he can find his footing on unfamiliar terrain, he stumbles over a corpse... Thick with atmosphere and steeped in the arcane lore of the black arts, Carr's fictional extrapolation on the 1834 crimes of the aristocrat Delphine LaLaurie evokes all the wonder and danger of nineteenth-century New Orleans. A taut, suspenseful historical mystery."--BOOK JACKET
