*/Voodoo Child/ #1*

In 1860, the plantation of Mason Moore-a known Unionist sympathizer-is

burned to the ground by secessionists. In the battle, Moore's

illegitimate son is killed, but as he gasps his last breaths, a voodoo

bokor places a spell upon the dying boy. Flash forward to 2005: four

months after the worst natural disaster in its history, New Orleans is

gripped by fear as young girls start to disappear from its streets while

a brutal gang war rages. When Detective Robert Julien starts to

investigate, he finds that there's something else out in the shadows:

something that's neither dead nor alive-an enigma. But is it a possible

ally, or the darkest nightmare of all?
