Publisher's Summary

No one is more familiar with Savannah's dark side than homicide detective and native resident Elise Sandburg. She's been haunted for years by her own mysterious past: She was abandoned as a baby in one of the city's ancient cemeteries, and it’s rumored that she is the illegitimate daughter of an infamous Savannah witch doctor. The local Gullah culture of voodoo and magic is one that few outsiders can understand, least of all Elise’s new partner. Now someone is terrorizing the city, creating real-life zombies by poisoning victims into a conscious paralysis that mimics death. As the chilling case unfolds, Elise is drawn back into the haunted past she's tried so hard to leave behind.

Fun listen

Did not expect to enjoy a story steeped in the occult. Found it to be a lot of fun. Interesting characters. Narrator is excellent. Will try the next in the series

Great story ... TERRIBLE narrator...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I'm on the fence ... i had big issues with the narrator.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I couldn't get past the incorrect sentence inflections and the sing song voice... UGH!!!

Water water, but take care what you drink

Interesting and in places exciting tale of the mystique of southern American states . A good police whodunnit which in places got very deep in voodoo, zombies and magic but kept it within reason and sensibility. First of three novels so I'm interested to see if the next story lives up to its promise.

Narration let this down.

Like a female version of a satire of William Shatner.
The story was ok but hard to listen to because of the whispery jagged tone of the narrator. I wouldn't listen to it again, once was enough.
