Wilson transfers her deep love of New Orleans, gained by two decades of writing for the Times-Picayune, into a suspenseful tale about how the dead can endanger the living. As an award-winning journalist, she currently writes about education, politics and culture under the byline of Dawn Ruth for New Orleans Magazine.
The Night Walker’s Song interweaves the voices of three characters whose lives intersect through the needless deaths of yellow fever victims in New Orleans’ final outbreak in 1905.
Jo Nell James, a young woman looking for a new start; Archibald Carrier, a crime reporter whose career is on the skids; and Mother Edna Williams, a housekeeper turned spiritualist minister, all must face the consequences of their own secrets as they reveal the shocking truth of a long-dead family’s past.
