He is surprised to learn that Jack's assailants were searching for hidden diamonds, but the jewels turn out to be the least of his worries.In his efforts to uncover who attacked Jack, Tony stumbles onto three murders the locals attributed to the mythical "loup-garou", a shape changing creature roaming the swamps. The deeper he delves into the mystery of the diamonds, the more he becomes a target himself.His hunt for the stolen gems and those responsible for Jack's assault take him unto the chilling eighteenth century culture of backwater swamps, the unholy mysteries of New Orleans, and the furtive back room schemes of local politics.
