Gabriel Moore is no ordinary child. He's not really living... but he's not reall
Gabriel Moore is no ordinary child. He's not really living... but he's not really dead, either. In 1860, the plantation of Mason Moore - a known Unionist sympathizer - is burned to the ground by secessionists. In the battle, Moore's illegitimate son is killed, but as he gasps his last breaths, a voodoo bokor places a spell upon the dying boy. Flash forward to 2005: four months after the worst natural disaster in its history, New Orleans is gripped by fear as young girls start to disappear from its streets while a brutal gang war rages. When Detective Robert Julien starts to investigate, he finds that there's something else out in the shadows - something that's neither dead nor alive, an enigma. But is it a possible ally or the darkest nightmare of all?
