An object of desire? Or of fear?
It was stolen from a New Orleans grave - the centuries-old bust of an evil man, a demonic man. It’s an object desired by collectors - and by those with wickedness in their hearts.
One day, its current owner shows up at Danni Cafferty’s antiques shop on Royal Street, the shop she inherited from her father. But before Danni can buy the statue, it disappears, the owner is found dead…and Danni discovers that she’s inherited much more than she realized. In the store is a book filled with secret writing: instructions for defeating evil entities. She’d dismissed it as a curiosity...until the arrival of this statue, with its long history of evil and even longer trail of death.
Michael Quinn, former cop and now private investigator, is a man with an unusual past. He believes that doing the right thing isn’t a job - it’s a way of life. And the right thing to do is find and destroy this object weighted with malevolent powers. He and Danni are drawn together in their search for the missing statue, following it through sultry New Orleans nights to hidden places in the French Quarter and secret ceremonies on abandoned plantations.
Cafferty and Quinn already know that trust in others can be misplaced, that love can be temporary. And yet their connection is primal. Mesmerizing. They also know that their story won’t end when this case is closed and the dead rest in peace once again.

The narrator was excellent!
Any other Heather Graham paranormal novel.
The ending -- at the sugar mill. That's all I'll write so I don't give the ending away.
I love how Ms. Graham took the time to develop her characters and the story line. Plus, the narrator's voice for each character was incredible. I'd definitely listen to her again.
No from Heather Graham, always from Natalie Ross
this had such promise, but it never came! Nora Roberts is too wordy, so this had the potential, but it just had one tone from start to finish. Divine evil was too close.
Ms Graham wants a series with the start of this one. This just seemed long, but lacked the
punch of Linda Howard or Sandra Brown.
all with Wolf
No. I pre ordered and listen straight through. Not worth my time with the exception that Ms Ross saved the listen. Her male voice is just so good.
I use to read earlier works of Ms Graham, you must be a fan of her works to buy this.
