The legend of Voodoo Lucy begins when twenty-eight-year-old Lucinda Jones leaves Tupelo, Mississippi, and her alcoholic, abusive, father behind to start a new life in New Orleans. In the city where jazz bands play until the first light of dawn and no one ever seems to sleep, Lucy falls in love with the eccentric, distinctive characters of the French Quarter, but soon runs afoul of a criminal gang boss and his crew. Lucy herself is no saint—she’s long gotten by through running small-time cons, but when she dreams up a profitable voodoo-laced scam and dares to testify against a killer, Lucy’s life starts to spiral out of control. With friends on both sides of the law and a drug gang who wants her dead, can Lucy scheme her way out of danger and into the life she’s always dreamed of?

Relentlessly, the armies of the empire are sent to crush the rebellion in Judea. They will do anything to eliminate the Maccabee army and suppress the Jewish faith.
