This is Book Two in a detective series featuring homicide detectives Elise Sandburg and David Gould. It is set in Savannah, and is richly atmospheric.

As the story begins, Elise is on leave, recovering from being captured and tortured by Atticus Tremain, a man known as “The Organ Thief.” Elise decides to spend her recovery at the plantation of her deceased aunt Anastasia, which is now supposedly empty. It is a convenience for her because her own house is in the process of being renovated.

Elise’s partner, David, doesn’t like the idea of Elise staying alone, but Tremain is in the hospital in a coma, and anyway, Elise is also looking forward to the solitude so she can rethink her life. Who is she, she wonders? A detective, or the daughter of a root doctor, or conjurer, who supposedly has inherited his skills? Or can she be both?

David is going through his own mental reevaluation. When Elise was abducted and almost died, David realized how much she meant to him. And yet, if they took their partnership to another level, would they risk losing their friendship? Nevertheless, David accepts a mojo for winning the affection of Elise, even though he doesn’t believe in such things.

Back at the plantation, Elise discovers a number of family secrets, and finds out more about Atticus Tremain. But it may not matter: Tremain awoke from his coma, escaped from the hospital, and is still obsessed with Elise.

Evaluation: The atmosphere of Savannah, the appealing but troubled protagonists and the chemistry between them, and the suspense that builds to a fever pitch make a winning combination. I definitely look forward to more volumes in this series. ( )
