The End of Desire: A Rowan Gant Investigation

Overview

Getting lost is easy when you chase shadows in the dark, but when you do it on your own, with no official sanction, and on unfamiliar ground, getting dead can be an even bigger worry.
Post-Katrina New Orleans is a far cry from Saint Louis where this all began, and chasing a twisted, Hoodoo-magic-practicing, female serial killer here, then playing hide-and-seek with her throughout this flood-ravaged city isn't something I'd normally consider doing... However, here I am, with no ...

Overview

Getting lost is easy when you chase shadows in the dark, but when you do it on your own, with no official sanction, and on unfamiliar ground, getting dead can be an even bigger worry.
Post-Katrina New Orleans is a far cry from Saint Louis where this all began, and chasing a twisted, Hoodoo-magic-practicing, female serial killer here, then playing hide-and-seek with her throughout this flood-ravaged city isn't something I'd normally consider doing... However, here I am, with no authority, no backup, and breaking all the rules-including my own. What can I say? We do what we must, and for me, this goes beyond a mere imperative. The life and sanity of someone I hold dear hinges on it.
My name is Rowan Gant. I'm a Witch with an unfortunate curse-I can hear the voices of the dead. As you probably guessed by the fact that I call it a curse, I'm not overly fond of the affliction. It brings me nothing but grief, including a second career consulting for the police to help track down killers, mostly because the dead people who do the loudest talking are the victims of those very same killers.
But this time it's different. I'm off the books, and the cops aren't very happy about that. I'm also chasing someone who appears to have even more clout with the dead than I do, and that definitely doesn't bode well. However, she made a big mistake-she came after my wife. When she crossed that line, she started something I don't think she expected.
Now, I'm going to finish it, even if she kills me...

    This is the end of the Miranda mini-series and it is a fantastic finale

    Instead of being with his wife Felicity, Rowan Gant is in New Orleans doing research on Miranda, a LWA (deified spirits within Vadoon religious practices) and his wife has checked herself into a psychiatric ward. It was thought that Felicity was a killer who was into bondage when it was her identical half-sister Annalise Deveraux who committed the crimes. When Felicity was out of control it was because Miranda was riding (Possessing) her just like she does to Annalise.-------------------- The difference between the two women is that Annalise made it happen and she likes what Miranda does for her. While in New Orleans, Miranda using Annalise¿s body kills another man and when Rowan is caught investigating, the police send him home after Miranda puts him in the hospital. Annalise does not want Miranda riding Felicity and the only way to prevent that is to kill Felicity but Rowen and their friends won¿t let that happen even when Miranda binds them together again.------------------ This is the end of the Miranda mini-series and it is a fantastic finale. The use of magick is more overt than ever before and readers see how powerful Felicity and Rowan are in their use of it. This is as much a love story as it is a paranormal mystery because Rowen will do anything to make sure his beloved Felicity is safe. M. R. Sellars is a grand storyteller, who as a practicing witch uses his knowledge to make sure his Gant saga feels magically authentic.--------------- Harriet Klausner
