Abstract:

Part mystery, part horror novel, this unusual thriller offers a rich gumbo made up of equal parts voodoo, Cajun history, and New Orleans ambiance. An utterly horrifying murder-suicide; in which, a seemingly ordinary man suddenly goes berserk, burning his family and himself to death. Other murder-suicides follow, linked only by the fact that all the killers were humming nursery rhymes just prior to the mayhem. New Orleans medical examiner Andy Broussard and police psychologist Kit Franklyn investigate, determined to find a rational explanation for the crimes, which seem more and more to be the result of a voodoo-inspired curse.
