One Blood is a supernatural thriller that will leave you wanting more from this author. Rich themes of voodoo, family curses, political ambitions and a quest for power are dominant in this roller coaster ride set in Louisiana. Governor Randy Lafitte is popular and beloved after battling back from brain cancer, but his political success has come with a price. When his daughter is kidnapped Lafitte is confronted with a past he thought died a long time ago. However, what hasn't caught you, hasn't passed you. And what comes for Lafitte may way more than he or the forces behind him can handle as he fights the demons (literally demons) from his past.
