Just when a mysterious death in Washington, DC, appears to have voodoo connections rooted in New Orleans, Trevor Black also receives an invitation to speak at the national ABA convention in the city.

He knows he’ll be in enemy territory, both as a disbarred attorney and as a follower of Jesus, but he determines to travel there and confront the supernatural element. Right after a grisly murder in his hotel room puts him on the suspect list, his daughter disappears, leaving a note that suggests a connection to the local cult religion. Now Trevor must not only crack the case but try to protect Heather from forces of darkness clutching at her soul as well. And just as he discovers that his ability to sniff out the supernatural has its limitations, Trevor learns that this web of evil extends far beyond isolated murders, enslaving scores of innocent children, with its head perhaps linked to the highest seats of power.

My thoughts:

I loved the premise of this book, it definitely pulled me in and made me want to read it. I like things that are a little different.

This book did deliver on the something different and supernatural aspect, even a bit graphic at times. However, that doesn’t that bother me, I can handle that.

As much as I wanted to like this book I just didn’t. I think it might have simply been the style of writing, it didn’t grab me and make me want to keep reading. So even though this has an interesting premise, for me the story didn’t hold up and make me want to keep reading. As always, this is my opinion only.
