  • (1888PressRelease) August 13, 2014 - Burdened by spring floods, malaria and yellow fever, early citizens of New Orleans often turned to voodoo practitioners-African Rosalie, Sanite Dede, Bras Coupe-for protection. None were more powerful, or feared, than Doctor John and Marie Laveau. When P.I. Wyatt Thomas encounters a ghost during a hospital visit, he tells his sometimes business partner voodoo mambo Mama Mulate. She puts him in a trance and channels the ghost, soon learning a curse connects him and a long-dead French aristocrat. They are doomed to remain connected forever unless Wyatt can return to old New Orleans and lift the curse before midnight on New Year's Eve.

    Here is what some readers have said about the French Quarter Mystery Series: If you try, you will hear a rocking zydeco band and smell gumbo cooking on every page. Wilder captures the quirky, weird vibe that is New Orleans. Wilder makes you want to have a Dixie beer with his characters. Wilder's fiction is like a cold, hurricane slush on a hot Louisiana day.

    Eric Wilder grew up in Louisiana listening to his grandmothers' ghost stories and tales of voodoo. He now lives in Oklahoma, about a mile from historic Route 66, with wife Marilyn.
