BLACK DUST MAMBO by ADRIAN PHOENIX
"There will be times, girl, when all your magic ain't going to be
enough, times when it will seem to dry up like mud under the
noonday sun, or even make matters worse . . ."
Kallie Riviere, a fiery Cajun hoodoo apprentice with a talent
for trouble, finds herself smack-dab in the middle of one of
those times her mentor warned her about when she visits
New Orleans to attend the Hecatean Alliance's annual
carnival: her hard-bodied conjurer hookup ends up dead in
her blood-drenched bed. And he was killed by something that
Kallie would never dream of touching -- the darkest of dark
juju, soul-eating juju -- a black dust hex that may have been
meant to kill her.
Now Kallie has to use every bit of hoodoo knowledge and
bayou-bred mojo she possesses to clear her own name and
find the killer -- even as that dark sorcerer hunts Kallie and
her friends. But Kallie's search for the truth soon leads her in
a direction she never anticipated -- back home to Bayou
Cypres Noir, and to Gabrielle LaRue, Kallie's aunt, protector,
and hoodoo mentor . . . who is looking more and more like
she just might be the one who wants Kallie dead.
