No one understands the dark side of Savannah better than homicide detective Elise Sandberg. As an infant, she was thought to be the daughter of a famous root doctor and was abandoned in the ancient Lowcountry cemetery. Growing up, she was haunted by her possible connection to the local Gullah culture with its spells and voodoo. Now there's a twisted killer on the loose, and the city is gripped by terror. Someone is using a substance that leaves its victims in a state that mimics death. As their bodies slip into irreversible paralysis, their minds remain fully, shockingly awake. Step by step, Elise's relentless chase for the killer draws her straight back into the world she most fears. To stop a murderer, she must confront the truth about her past in ways she never imagined.
