Point/Scholastic U.S., 2013

On the far side of Rampart, both men disappear into Treme, the old neighborhood built decades earlier for New Orleans’s free people of color. They’ll both end up in a small house on St Philip Street, fighting over that tiny piece of hidden treasure.

Neither will make it out alive.

In this sequel to Ruined, Rebecca Brown returns to New Orleans where just a year ago she escaped death.

She is not expecting to meet another ghost: a troubled Irish boy who insists only Rebecca can help him. Soon she finds herself embroiled in another murder mystery from more than a century ago. But has Rebecca stumbled into something much bigger and more serious than she understands?


“Captures the rich beauty, lively culture, and authentic history of New Orleans.”

“A solid and satisfying paranormal mystery, this offering will please existing fans and may win over some new ones to boot.”
– Kirkus Review
