Overview

CATE HARLOW’S best friend, the lovely “lady of the New York City evening” Melissa Aubrincourt asks Cate and Cate’s ex-husband, NYPD Detective Will Benigni to come to New Orleans. Her beloved Tante Anjali, the woman who raised Melissa, has been arrested for murder.

What she doesn’t tell Cate is that she needs her to conduct a private investigation into this murder of a notorious voodoo priestess who had been accused of kidnapping girls for a sex trade. As a “gifted person of magic” and powerful voodooienne rival of the murdered woman, Tante Anjali, is the prime suspect. She was found kneeling over the body of the murder victim, Fleur-Salí Cloutier, holding a bloody knife in her hands, yet she swears she did not kill her.

But Anjali Aubrincourt is more than evasive about what really happened the night of the murder. Cate believes she is protecting the real murderer, but who and why? The answer to both may come from an imaginative fairy-like child who believes in magic and a goddess named Sainte Ursule.

While Will works tirelessly with the New Orleans police and legal systems, Cate’s own private investigation into the murder takes her into the mystical and frightening heart of New Orleans voodoo magic where the dead and the living co-exist, and a possible connection to witchcraft in her own family.

I love how Kristen Houghton makes the city of New Orleans come alive in her latest Cate Harlow mystery. The sights, smells and sultry atmosphere of this charming city are interwoven with the world of voodoo and human trafficking. When Cate Harlow leaves New York with her ex-husband, Will Benigni, to help out a friend's aunt, a person of powerful magic, who has been accused of murder, she is immediately immersed in the underworld of NOLA as she tries to prove her friend’s innocence. Risking her own life, Cate plunges into the case and learns the secrets of an awful sex trade. With plot twists that keep the pages turning, Houghton does a masterful job in telling this story. I loved every page and would highly recommend it. If you’re getting ready for a cruise or need a good beach read for spring break, this is your book.

This is the 3rd book in A Cate Harlow Private Investigation series and, while they’re all excellent reads, I think this one is the best. Cate Harlow just keeps on getting better and better. I began reading this book during lunch at the school where I teach. I just finished it. It's now four in the morning. So hard was it to put this book down. These books work as standalone but do yourself a favor and start the series from the beginning because they're all fantastic reads.
