Private Investigator Adrienne Hargrove has seen every kind of human depravity, but online predators grooming teenaged girls so they can abuse them seems the most depraved of all. The fact that often the predators are people the young victims know only adds to the horror. The world of Internet chat rooms seems like a world of science fiction to Adrienne, until Detective Mike Morris asks her to assist him in the case of two missing girls, Abigail Montgomery and Matilda Morning. Abigail has been found dead in New Orleans, and Matilda is still missing. With warnings of Hurricane Katrina in every weather report, Adrienne and Mike head to New Orleans, where Voodoo Priestess Madam Helene Dupre sends a message that she believes she can help them find Matilda. As Adrienne and Mike do all they can to find the girl, they become aware of another kind of human depravity. Evacuated to the Superdome in New Orleans following the hurricane, they see firsthand the nightmare of poverty, racial discrimination, government failure, and human hopelessness at its very worst. Does Madam Dupre have the power to help, or is she a hoax? Will Mike and Adrienne find Matilda in time, or is it already too late? This case is one that will change them both forever.
