Publisher's Summary

Emerging from the bayou like an apparition, Donegal Plantation is known for its unsurpassed dining, captivating atmosphere, haunting legends… and now a corpse swinging from the marble angel that marks its cemetery’s most majestic vault. A corpse discovered in nearly the same situation as that of Marshall Donegal, the patriarch killed in a skirmish just before the Civil War.

Desperate for help traditional criminologists could never provide, plantation heiress Ashley Donegal turns to an elite team of paranormal investigators who blend hard forensics with rare – often inexplicable – intuition. Among them is Jake Mallory, a gifted New Orleans musician with talent that stretches beyond the realm of the physical, and a few dark ghosts of his own.The evil the team unveils has the power to shake the plantation to its very core. Jake and Ashley are forced to risk everything to unravel secrets that will not stay buried – even in death….

Lackluster romance, few thrills, TSTL protagonist.


I’m reading this series out of order, so I just bounced from Book #29 to this one. I’ve seen iterations of this civil war re-enactment sort of murder on CSI or Criminal Minds or a similar show.

I listened to the Audiobook version, which I usually like much better than Kindle, but this time the story seemed to drag, especially because it seems front-loaded with history.

The storyline is very Krewe-like, so it’s predictable, but the protagonists/lovers just didn’t have any chemistry. Many secondary characters weren’t fleshed out, but I’d started a list of names, so yay for me. What threw me was when the author started confusing Angela and Ashley.

I stuck it out to the end, going at 2.0 speed or greater.

Historical feel and Horror in one

I really liked the look at a rural community that this book gives us. I love the fresh take on ghosts, and the strangeness of the book. I loved the way that the author creates a world that seems continuous, like it had existed before the start of the book and like it would continue after the book ended. I liked how weird and unexpected the plot was, and I really enjoyed the variety in personalities of the characters.
This was a great story!
