A TWISTED LADDER
by Rhodi Hawk
Dr. Madeleine LeBlanc thought she'd
finally gotten her life in order. Daughter of a paranoid
schizophrenic, she worked her way through school to become a clinical
psychologist. But when her brother fires a shotgun into his head in a
fishing boat out on Bayou Black, his death stirs echoes from a forgotten
Madeleine discovers her family's
abandoned sugar plantation along the Mississippi River, and with it a world
when the antebellum era was crumbling, and the line between servant and
master was starting to fade.
But she also uncovers a pattern of strange and sinister occurrences.
Things that cast shadows of unexplainable phenomena.
But the more Madeleine explores, the deeper she becomes
ensnared in a trap. Her only hope is
to face the ghosts of the past, the dangers of the
present day, and the twisted ladder that links them together.
