L'IMMORTALITÈ Madame Lalaurie and the Voodoo Queen
A novel by T.R. Heinan
Based on the true story of Delphine Lalaurie and New Orleans' most horrifying crime.
Set in the antebellum Creole community surrounding New Orleans' St. Louis Cathedral, L'IMMORTALITÈ offers a fine gumbo of horror and history, comedic characters and conflicted spirituality, and serves it up Cajun style in the attic of the Lalaurie Mansion, New Orleans' most haunted house.
A reclusive lay sacristan shares the quest for immortality with a runaway slave, the sadistic socialite Delphine Lalaurie and her mad scientist husband. Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau intercedes with a lesson in the power of compassion when their fates collide at the infamous Lalaurie Mansion.
New Orleans Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau, the diabolical Delphine Lalaurie and the haunted mansion on Royal Street are uniquely revealed in this irreverent horror story drenched in excesses of nineteenth century Louisiana .
L'IMMORTALITE: Madame Lalaurie and the Voodoo Queen is based on the true story of the fire at the Lalaurie House that led to the discovery of New Orleans' most horrifying crime, an event that has generated legends of terror for almost two centuries. The tumultuous events of the 1830's, the lives of two powerful women and the ghosts of a dozen characters torn from the pages of New Orleans history and the Lalaurie legend all come vividly to life in L'IMMORTALITE.
