'Sudden, violent death enshrouded the island port of Marapai. The kind of death known only to voodoo cults and savages. On this island Europeans lost their civilization, their innocence–and their sanity. And famed anthropologist David Warwick lost his life. Rumors whispered suicide. But the rumors were lies. Everyone lied to haunted Emma Warwick, who suspected murder and set out to trap a killer–only to discover the very roots of terror!'
