Publisher's Summary

The Ranger

On the island of Galveston, off the coast of Southeast Texas, lies a hotel called the Jacaranda. In its single year of operation, two dozen people have died there. The locals say it's cursed. The Rangers say that's nonsense, but they know a man who might be willing to investigate. Horatio Korman crosses the water from the mainland and hopes for the best.

The Nun

But the bodies pile up, and a hurricane is brewing up fast. One of the Jacaranda's guests sees time running out, so she seeks an authority of a different sort: a priest from El Huizache who is good at solving problems and keeping secrets. Eileen Callahan has a problem to solve and a secret to keep. She crosses her fingers and sends a message that could save them all.

The Padre

Juan Miguel Quintero Rios broke a promise to the Virgin, and so he was punished...but his intentions were pure, so he was also blessed. Now he walks the Southwest with second sight and a tattoo across his back: "Deo, non fortuna" - by God, not chance. The former gunslinger crosses himself and makes for the Jacaranda Hotel.

Thrilling book, full narration

I love the clockwork century books and although this one is a little different it's still great. The issue really is with the narration.... the narrator is just not suited to the book. he was very one note and just didn't capture the imagination at all. At times I actually had to stop listening, an experience I haven't had with audio books before.
