Please join us for a reading and signing with Dawn Ruth celebrating the release of her new novel, THE NIGHT WALKER'S SONG.
Jo Nell James thinks her life is on the upswing when she rents an antebellum mansion stocked with valuable antiques in a blighted New Orleans neighborhood. Even though the truth lurks everywhere, in the iconic oaks, her bed and even at the piano in the parlor, she hangs on to that fantasy for far too long.
Unknown to her, the former occupants’ long ago tragedies are about to become her own. Mysterious deaths, both past and present, bring the police and crime reporter Archie Carrier to her door. With Carrier’s help, Jo Nell begins to understand the hidden and all too public forces that threaten her sanity and even her life.
Dawn Ruth Wilson, a former staff writer for The Times-Picayune, holds a MA in fiction from New York University. Under the by-line Dawn Ruth, she writes a column covering education and culture for New Orleans Magazine.
