Publisher and Titles: DAW
Struggling actress Esther Diamond is outraged when her guest role as a hooker on the controversial TV drama The Dirty Thirty is jeopardized by zombies, angry spirits, and a voodoo curse. But will Esther's courage backfire and end up leading her to become a human sacrifice on the altar of the sinister supernatural powers that are taking over New York City?
The explanations of voudou history and practice get a bit long-winded, and the plot is fairly transparent, but the snappy dialogue is funny, and the characters are interesting. So far, there have been no vamps or shape-shifters in this series, just sinister mortals using black magic, but who knows what kind of creatures will be after Esther next?
