In New Orleans, archaeologist Faye Longchamp and her team of archaeologists are horrified when a corpse surfaces that's far too new to be an archaeological find. Faye and her fianc Joe Wolf Mantooth are drawn into the investigation by a detective who believes their professional expertise is critical to the case. They quickly learn that trouble swirled around the victim, Shelly Broussard, like winds around the still, quiet eye of a hurricane. Does Shelly's heroic rescue work in the aftermath of Katrina the key to her death? Or does the sheaf of photos in her work files hold the answer?

From page 1 to 37, on the pages where Evans isn't reminding you that Katrina hit New Orleans, she is telling you there is a dead body. There are "excerpts" that may or not be from actual historic documents. Average sentence length is about 8 words. Every clue, description, and thought repeated at least twice (or fifteen times in the case of the dumbbell). I think it is too graphic for a 8-10 year old, (dead body left to rot) but that seems to be the audience intended.
