In the 1970s, Alex Rossiter was a rock and roll icon on a par with Hendrix and Joplin. Thanks to drugs, Alex crashed and burned, fading into oblivion unable to get a gig or a recording contract anywhere. He recently resurfaced in New Orleans where he has developed an interest in voodoo and is initiated into a local hanfou by Papa Belovded. Not long afterward, Alex obtains a gig at the Gris-Gris Club. <P>Alex meets an old friend Jere Sloan and the woman he loves Charlotte ¿Charlie: Calder. Charlie instantly wants to share sex with the musician. They go home, leaving Jere behind. Alex¿s brief elation dissipated once he reads ¿The Aegrisomnia¿ and becomes involved with the One-Who-Tempts, a shade residing between the living and the dead. The malevolent spirit tempts Alex to surrender his soul and destroy everyone he cherishes. <P> Nancy A Collins does for voodoo what Anne Rice has done for vampires. The characters are fully developed making them seem authentic though pawns in a cosmic chess game played by essences much older than mankind. TEMPTER is a temptation that horror fans will want to repeatedly reread. <P>Harriet Klausner
