With no husband and no children, and no prospects on the horizon, twenty-nine-year-old Judith Marchand believes she’s destined to lead a lonely librarian’s life in her small town. But a classified ad intrigues her, and she’s soon on her way to restore the private library of the de Lanvilles, a prominent southern Louisiana family. What she doesn’t know is that this ideal job will also lead her down a path rife with seduction and murder.
She’s enthralled with Journey’s End, the family’s mansion. Against her better judgment, she finds herself falling in love with her mysterious employer, David de Lanville, a man who admits he once tried killing his brother Beau. Tensions run high at Journey’s End, and the situation worsens when David is arrested for the beating and rape of a local young woman—just one of several suspicious incidents in this rural area near New Orleans. David proclaims his innocence, and Judith must make some difficult decisions.
Drenched in Cajun lure, Journey’s End travels through the winding moss-covered bayous and New Orleans at Mardi Gras, following a killer who pursues his victims via the silent waters of Bayou Tech.
