The legend of Voodoo Lucy begins when twenty-eight-year-old Lucinda Jones leaves Tupelo, Mississippi, and her alcoholic, abusive, father behind to start a new life in New Orleans. In the city where jazz bands play until the first light of dawn and no one ever seems to sleep, Lucy falls in love with the eccentric, distinctive characters of the French Quarter, but soon runs afoul of a criminal gang boss and his crew. Lucy herself is no saintâ€”sheâ€™s long gotten by through running small-time cons, but when she dreams up a profitable voodoo-laced scam and dares to testify against a killer, Lucyâ€™s life starts to spiral out of control. With friends on both sides of the law and a drug gang who wants her dead, can Lucy scheme her way out of danger and into the life sheâ€™s always dreamed of? Fans of Vito Zuppardoâ€™s â€œTrue Blue Detectiveâ€ series will enjoy this story, which takes readers back to Mario DeLucaâ€™s rookie year on the beat and Zack Nelson in action as a NOLA PD homicide detective, as well as the early days of the infamous Cornerview Gang and the other unsavory characters that prowl the colorful, charming French Quarter.
