A slave curses a slave owner out of anger and the protection spell she places on her family backfires and curses them with the Fury, a spirit that likes killing. The way in which the victims were killed were a bit repetitive and the pacing kind of meandered along when Carmen, the reporter, was investigating the voodoo lady and the killer. A good surface read. The ending, I could have done without. It left me stumped as I thought the Fury was just a family thing. It doesn't matter either way.
