You may know the cover characters, Delphine Lalaurie and Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau,from having taken a haunted tour in New Orleans, visiting the Conti Wax Museum, or watching American Horror Story on TV. Now you can discover the entire history and the best of the urban legend in this 5 star reviewed page-turner by T.R. Heinan. Here’s what readers are saying in Amazon reviews:
“Descriptions of the different types of bigotry and racial history, such as the "Code Noir", are nothing short of amazing”,
“I could not put this book down”
“I was up all night reading” “The grizzly detail of the legend, the horrific acts, and the way T.R. Heinan described them sent chills up my spine”
“The history is right on and he really brought the characters to life for his readers”

Horrendous yet Uplifting,
The story revolves around Phillipe Bertrand, the Saint Louis Cathedral's lay sacristan and the kindly Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau, and their combined efforts to save a slave child and end the torture to the other slaves in the mansion.
The book is filled with hidden innuendo. Bertrand lives in a yellow brick house where today a yellow brick building actually exists, on Pirate's Alley, which becomes a metaphorical brick road for him. He gives the runaway slave girl Elise bread, and later pours her wine.
Marie Laveau practices voodoo but is also a regular member of the Catholic Church, and in reality, New Orleans is probably the only place in the world where the two come together today.
The story moves at a fast pace and is hard to put down.
The characters from the book are soon to be used by the hit TV series American Horror Story.

The slaves were the property of the demon in the shape of a woman whom we mentioned in the beginning of this article. They had been confined by her for several months in the situation from which they had thus been rescued and had merely been kept in existence to prolong their sufferings and to make them taste all that the most refined cruelty could inflict. But why dwell upon the particulars! We feel confident that the community share with us our indignation, and that vengeance will fall, heavily full upon the guilty culprit. Without being superstitious, we cannot but regard the manner in which these atrocities have been brought to light as an especial interposition of heaven.

"L'Immortalite: Madame LaLaurie and the Voodoo Queen"
By T.R. Heinan (Nonius LLC, $14.99)
The principal activity of this exercise in horror takes places in New Orleans in the mid-1830s. Dr. LaLaurie researches Galvanism in his home laboratory using slaves as guinea pigs. (The best known acolyte of Galvanism is Dr. Frankenstein.) His wife, Delphine, wants only to become immortal. Marie Laveau, a practitioner in the black arts, achieves this in a spectacular if unexpected way.
