Prepare to be horrified and mystified when you join us for an event celebrating the publication of one of our favorite books!  Nicola Trwst will surely captivate her audience with a reading from her newest novel, Bayou Nights, a mysterious and exciting tale of justice and revenge riddled with voodoo magic.

Bayou Nights is a novel of vengeance carried out in the terrifying environment of corrupt politics, social injustice, and the exotic eroticism of Voodoo. Set in the months prior to Hurricane Katrina, Claire Rivet, a Baton Rouge Assistant District Attorney, attempts to connect the rape and murder of a young woman to the similar attack on her when she was ten. Claire is certain the same person is responsible, and she lives only to bring her attacker to justice. In the Louisiana bayou, her quest is dangerously compromised by Mamma Anna, a voodoo priestess who lures Claire into a dark Voodoo practice, magie noire, reserved for those willing to give up everything for revenge.

When the lines between justice and revenge start to blur, Claire struggles to choose the right path, not knowing that Mamma Anna hasn’t left her one.

Come and celebrate with wine and snacks and an appetite for a well told tale.
