Once the bayou was thick with it. The buttery yellow petals. The delicately veined green leaves. The seductive scent of wolfsbane. But for years the people of Ducros Parish, Louisiana, have been free of the ancient root, and its ancient evil.
Now tiny yellow buds are once again dotting the bayou. And fear sinks its roots deep into their souls. For when the wolfsbane blossoms in springtime splendor, the horror will be back in full flower. And Ducros Parish will be a place of nightmarish terror.
