Summary, etc.: In a house under renovation, a plumber uncovers a cellar no one knew about, and makes a rather grisly discovery -- a decapitated chicken, animal bones, and cauldrons containing beads, feathers, and other relics of religious ceremonies. In the center of the shrine is the skull of a teenage girl. Meanwhile, on a nearby lakeshore, the headless body of a teenage boy is found by a man walking his dog. Led by a preacher turned politician, citizen vigilantes blame the devil worshippers and Wiccans and begin a witch hunt, intent on seeking revenge. Forensic antropologist Temperance Brennan, "five-five, feisty, and forty plus" is called in to investigate, and a complex gripping tale unfolds in this deadly mix of voodoo, Santería, and devil worship.
