Good book but just had a bunch of paint things that were annoying. For someone that claims the city knows. The city has a way of revealing what it knows when it’s convenient. Lane story telling us what it is if you can notice that so easily
Really captivating characters and great story line! I really enjoyed reading it and hope there will be more to this story in the future.
I really enjoyed this book. It kept me on my toes from the beginning. I took interest in the different characters special abilities and the detective work from Mambo Reina. I just wish the was a light at the end of the tunnel of her mother, whether she was alive or dead.
Interesting journey into parts of New Orleans tourists never see and the politics of a Deep South city still recovering from a disaster.
I began this book without any idea what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised. Fun story. I look forward to more.
