Well, it seems Amanda Stevens is light on the romance in all her books; I was hoping for a bit more heat than the Graveyard Queen has, but no lack here. However, that's the only complain I have about this book; the suspense and dark atmosphere were simply perfect! It's one of those rare cases where I couldn't guess the killer and there were points were everyone seemed a suspect to me. The plot was fast with many unexpected twists, a beautiful -if dark- description of New Orleans, and the characters, even the secondary ones, were engaging and unique. I'm looking forward to read more of her books.
