"Shed[s] light on what is fact and what is purely fiction in a tale
that's still told nightly on the streets of New Orleans."--Deep
"Should be required reading for visitors to New Orleans, especially those planning to take one of the ubiquitous ghost tours. Caroline Long's imaginative reconstruction of the events of 1834 and her forceful argument for Madame Lalaurie's guilt demonstrate that New Orleans history can haunt us without exaggerations or embellishments."--Louisiana History
