It's winter, and a chill has settled over the area near New Orleans. Finding a stream of blood, a tourist follows it to a dead man, facedown in the bayou. The man has been done in by a vicious beating so violent that his skull has been crushed in. It's barely a day before a second victim is found...once again so badly thrashed that the water runs red. The city becomes riddled with fear. An old family friend comes to Danni Cafferty, telling her that he's terrified, he's certain that he's received a message from the Blood Bayou killer.
