When a New Orleans psychic warns weird-news reporter Alexander Strange that his days are numbered, he figures he’s got nothing to lose. So he agrees to help a friend in Florida tormented by a stalker texting her in verse.
But as the mad rhymester directs them on a scavenger hunt to a series of haunted tourist traps, and when the pieces of the puzzle begin to take form, Alex realizes that what began as an oddball adventure might end in tragedy. Why is his friend being so secretive about the stalker’s mysterious hold over her? What does he want? And that French Quarter soothsayer—who is she, really? The only way to find out is to play the game to the end.
To get there, Alex must first explore the land of the hollow Earth, sample the metallic waters of the Fountain of Youth, and evade the ominous Everglades Skunk Ape. But he will not find the answers he seeks until he finally descends to Hell’s gateway—the Devil’s Millhopper.
