This is the first part of the Whiskey Witches #series, written by S.M. Blooding, about Detective Paige Whiskey, who is #investigating a serial #murder case with occult background in Louisiana. The Plot: Paige Whiskey is in Louisiana, a place full of voodoo #magic and mayhem. She is not used to the hot air and it is also not her application field because she's a #detective in Denver. However, Paige needs to inspect several #crime scenes in St Francisville with satanic symbols which is her expertise. Paige is one of the famous Whiskey Witches, yet she has no #magical powers herself. Her grandmother, Alma, was the advocate for stopping the hunting and oppression against witches during the Vietnam War. Alma changed how witches were perceived in the end so they didn't need to hide anymore. Alma is an Earth #witch who can produce healing salves, Paige's sister, Leslie, a Ghost Whisperer, her niece Mandy can summon fire, Tyler, her nephew, can break glass with his voice, her brother Nick is an Empath and her mother, Rachel is an Angel Whisperer. But that's the problem: Leslie's and Paige's mother feels superior over her daughters and decided to leave them in the care of her grandmother when Paige was in fourth grade. Rachel only kept their brother, Tyler, who she manipulated ever since to do her bidding. Her mother also thought that her daughters were evil and didn't want to have to do anything with them. And even though Paige doesn't have any #powers, she has a great awareness of magic and that's why she is then asked as an expert in such cases. In an old slave shack are symbols painted all over the first victim, Eddie Lopez, and the wall. First Paige guess it is an amateur because many are out of Buffy and Rockstar albums and there is even a mandala. The victim is male, mid-thirties, Hispanic, had only boxers on and the signs are carved into his flesh. Eddie lived the American dream with his wife and two kids, he had a shop and everything seem to be fine. But why was he murdered? ... 4-Stars! 295 more words.
