ABOUT THE BOOK:
Jeb, a former slave, rescues his brother-in-law Crispus from the Ku Klux Klan, pulling him into a world of Creole Voodoo, hatred, time travel, and redemption. The two brothers-in-law set out to stop Verdiss and his Klan followers from using the Pharaoh's Staff, a magical artifact from ancient Egypt.

In the end Jeb and Crispus must stop the eradication of an entire people and each must find redemption for his own past sins.
