The New York Times bestselling author of Gilt Trip returns to New Orleans for scrapbooking, Halloween, and homicide...

Her evening plans are abruptly put on hold when out of a curio cabinet--and into her arms--falls the bloody body of Oddities owner Marcus Joubert. While Joubert was known for being an eccentric, Carmela never thought he could inspire the passion required to kill--until she learns a priceless death mask was also stolen. As the mystery grows, so does the list of suspects, leaving Carmela with the feeling that it will take every trick in the book to unmask the killer thief before there's another night of murderous mischief... Scrapbooking Tips and Recipes Included.
