Hard luck Rosalie Smith lives by herself in the French Quarter of New Orleans, and she is not alone. With her multicoloured hair and kohl-smudged eyes, she strips for men at night and sleeps all day, and has nobody to welcome her home except the ghost who shares her apartment. But her spectral friend has more to offer than shadow touches and secrets shared in ghostly whispers. While she tends her sorrow over a tragic love lost and drowns her heart in whiskey bottles, he offers her a cure, and promises her a new future: one free of the past, one safe without dark memories. Will she accept? Will she refuse? And if there is no luck left for hard luck Rosalie, could there yet be any hope?
