Adult Fiction HAMBLY
Summary: The author acclaimed by the New York Times for her "masterly historical storytelling" spins another seductive mystery set in "the darkest time in American history."* It's July of 1835, a season when New Orleans becomes, for whites, a wet grave. In the deadly shadows of a decrepit shack, an old freedwoman has been found dead. Could her murder be linked to the swirling myths of the fortune in gold hidden by famed pirate Jean Lafitte? Or could it have something to do with the approaching wedding festivities between two of the city's richest families? As a hurricane smashes into the coast, January and his lover Rose stumble not only into a tempest, but into a killing swamp of hate and greed as murderous as the kiss of the grave itself.
