The short fiction in this book introduces the reader to an interesting assortment of characters. The lead story—Sidonie and the Loup-Garou—features a high school girl who learns it is a good idea to heed the warnings of her Cajun grandparents. The final tale—The Ghost and Sadie Stackpoole– solves the 200-year-old mystery of Jean LaFitte’s buried treasure in southwest Louisiana.
Sandwiched between these two tales are another ghost, a couple of voodoo dolls, and several women out to teach their men there’s a limit to how much garbage they’ll tolerate. A famous journalist returns to his hometown for a class reunion and faces down a painful episode from his past. A young wife discovers that sleeping on satin sheets is highly overrated. The story of Little Red Riding Hood takes on a Cajun twist when Ti-Rouge meets up with the kokodree—a big, bad alligator.
For entertainment with a Cajun feel, spend a couple of nights with these and other characters in the pages of this collection.
