It's winter and a chill has settled over New Orleans, binding a stream of blood that leads a tourist to a dead man, face down in the bayou.

The man has been done in by a vicious beating, so violent that his skull has been crashed in.

It's barely a day before a second victim is found . . . once again so badly thrashed that the water runs red. The city becomes riddled with fear.

An old family friend comes to Danni Cafferty, telling her that he's terrified, he's certain that he's received a message from the Blood Bayou killer--It's your turn to pay, blood on the bayou.

The two quickly become involved, and--as they all begin to realize that a gruesome local history is being repeated--they find themselves in a fight to save not just a friend, but, perhaps, their very own lives.

MY REVIEW

Bodies have turned up in the swamps of Louisiana and the general public is convinced that the rougarou has come back to kill once again. It's up to Quinn and Danni, with the help of their supportive crew, to distinguish fact from legend and catch a killer. This story was creepy, mysterious, and a fast-paced whodunit.

Although it was pretty short, it was jam-packed with what are considered facts by the locals. Legends, myths, cultural phenomenon, whatever you want to call it, the author brought all of that to this story and I found it so intriguing. It added a certain spice to the story, that's for sure!

*Read as part of the 1001 Dark Nights: Bundle Nine anthology
