It is well known that New Orleans has its dark underside as well as its glowing visible delights. The journey one intelligent, attractive, but psychically driven girl makes through the city's hidden labyrinth is the element that impels this riveting novel. In crisscrossing the city from the secure world of home in the Garden District to the titillating world of the Vieux Carre, she risks physical and psychological peril. As she explores life on the other side, she becomes engulfed in the vortex of evil. In The Snare one of America's most highly acclaimed fiction writers explores the mystery of place and the mystifying duality of the human wish, with its craving for both dark and light. This is a book for readers of choice writing and for those who seek a way to express and comprehend the ineffable sense of excitement aroused by the sinister, exotic beauty of New Orleans.
