Burdened by spring floods, malaria and yellow fever, citizens of old New Orleans often turned to voodoo practitioners—African Rosalie, Sanite Dede, Bras Coupe—for protection. None were more powerful, or feared, than Doctor John and Marie Laveau. After P.I. Wyatt Thomas encounters a ghost during a hospital visit, he tells his sometimes business partner voodoo mambo Mama Mulate. She places him in a trance and channels the ghost, soon learning a curse connects him and a long-dead French aristocrat. They are doomed to remain connected forever unless Wyatt can return to old New Orleans and lift the curse before midnight on New Year’s Eve.
