Drake Ramsey has moved to New Orleans, having fallen hard for the brilliant and beautiful Zuri Manyika. He is basking in the success of his first novel and spends his days in the Treme Coffeehouse contemplating a sequel. His horizons expand when his new friend, Adam Boateng, relays stories of life in early New Orleans that strongly hint he may have been there himself. Drake invites his old buddy, the intrepid Gerard Schleiermacher, to join them for Halloween, and they look forward to experiencing New Orleans at its most outrageous.

Their world is shaken when they learn that Zuri’s old Zimbabwean adversary has escaped from prison. Then Adam becomes a suspect in a murder. Is he guilty? Or was it the escaped prisoner, who is still seeking to avenge the death of his son at Zuri’s hands? Or perhaps the voodoo priest who dabbles in blood sacrifice? Bayous and beignets interweave with second lines and cemetaries as Drake, Zuri, and Gerard risk their lives in pursuit of the truth. Oh, and maybe there’s a vampire.

Of course, Drake discovers the killer. That’s just what he does.

Bayous and beignets, second lines and graveyards: it’s Halloween in New Orleans. There’s been a murder. Drake Ramsey is on the case.

Recent Reviews

I just finished this second book in the Drake Ramsey series and I thought it even better than the first! There was of course further character development for Drake and Zuri, and we are introduced to some new folks who I hope to see more of in the future. In addition to a delightful story of love, friendship, revenge and courage, the book has a mystery within a mystery, revealed in the final pages. Clues to this second mystery are found throughout the narrative but I didn't catch them until the end ... see if you can figure it out! This is a fun book for summer reading during vacation travels and I recommend it highly.
