Goodreads Review of Rebels of Babylon

"New Orleans, 1863 -- occupied and impoverished, yet defiant. The "embarrassed" corpse of a Yankee heiress washes up on a levee. Citizens disappear in the night from the alleys of the French Quarter. Tales of ritual murder taunt the authorities -- as an uneasy truce between newly freed slaves and their bankrupt former masters, voodoo priestesses, smugglers, and unwelcome Union troops, stretches to the breaking point. And Civil War detective Abel Jones, arriving to investigate the death of a young crusader, finds himself facing fantastic rumors of the resurrected dead as the city approaches riot and hysteria. "

 Great recommendation ! My summer reading list includes re-reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, probably the one book that influenced me more than any other...

I think I would like this book very much, Roy. I'll be on the lookout.
