For former Detective Jake Rubio, the tragedy brought a new career as a shoe shiner on Bourbon Street and a prosthetic hand, replacing the limb lost in the anarchy of Katrina. One thing that hasn’t changed are Jake’s memories of an unsolved murder. When a larger mystery surfaces tied to the death of a local fortune teller, Jake will need the help of an age old inter-dimensional hitman service well known to locals, the Spirit Window. Who better to track down the person responsible than the spirit of the victim herself?
