    When Catherine Ducane disappears in the heart of New Orleans, the cops react fast - after all, she is the governor’s daughter. But the case gets very strange, very quickly. Her bodyguard turns up horribly mutilated in the trunk of a beautiful vintage car, and when the kidnapper calls, he doesn’t want money; he wants time alone with a certain government functionary. Dragged down to the deep South from the New York district attorney’s office, Ray Hartmann puzzles over why he has been summoned and why the mysterious kidnapper, an elderly Cuban named Ernesto Perez, wants to tell him his life story.
