Danni Toussaint has a nail in her chest as a mark of her debt to The Baron Samedi - a debt she can only repay with the souls he forces her to steal. Michael Belew is desperate. Someone is kidnapping nuns in the Ninth Ward where he was raised an orphan, and he suspects a powerful enemy armed with voodoo magic. When Michael asks for Danni's help to find the kidnapper - or killer - they become pawns in a vicious game between The Baron Samedi and his brother, Lacroix. The prize? Control of the most powerful source of magic in New Orleans. Now, to protect the people of his city and save Danni from Samedi, Michael may have to sacrifice his soul.
