In the dark recesses of Louisiana’s eerie bayous, a growing evil waits to be released upon the small town of Bayou Crow. When two young children go missing, evil begins to find its way into the many crevices of the town. Angelle is disconcerted by the children’s disappearance
but, when evil is felt lurking in her own home, she knows there is a connection to the children. Dunny is the only person who can possibly save them.
Born with the witch's symbol
- a sixth finger on her left hand - Dunny is both gifted and cursed. Her connection to things that are lost, or need finding, may be a possible asset in the search for the children and fight against the lurking evil. Dunny hasn't led the easiest life
owing to this gift, and answering Angelle’s plea for help breeds fear. Failure is a
too-real possibility, and so much that is valuable may be lost.
Poochie may be old and come across a little worse for the wear, but age hasn't been as rough on her as others think. Her talks with God and uncanny intuition have never led her wrong.
The last week, though, has been uncharacteristically quiet, and the lack of messages being sent her way is disturbing. When dark, mysterious messages do start coming, the weight of the world
LeBlanc’s writing recalls the predominantly favored theme of author Heather Graham. Creating a world of dark, haunting paranormal in Water Witch, LeBlanc spins her tale of evil and witchery,
a struggle between good and evil on multiple levels. The novel is relentlessly dark from start to finish, with very little “feel good” quality to be found within. In terms of murder-mysteries, Water Witch is a sure bet for suspense, though parts of the novel do drag on at times.
