Anna isn't in town long before she discovers what seems to be an attempt to place a curse on her: a gruesomely killed pigeon marked with runic symbols. Everything traces back to Geneva's tenant, Jordan, a creepy guy who works at a strip club in the French Quarter -- who is not at all what he appears to be....

In this complex and multi-layered novel, Nevada Barr places Park Ranger Anna Pigeon in an urban jungle, where she must use all her talents to navigate the terrain as she unearths the dark nature of humanity.
