Marna and Tanner struggle to stay alive in the paranormal playground of New Orleans, where the chief of police and half the town otherworldly and following their own agendas. Despite a series of improbable turns that tangle up the denouement, Eden delivers a satisfying tale full of pulse-pounding action and passion. (June)
