DISBELIEF)You want to relive this nightmare from the BEGINNING?" 0 0 3 2 97 Yes. Restart game. 0 0 3 3 97 No, now that you mention it. 0 10 0 1 99 There's no one there to interrogate. 0 10 0 2 99 Gabriel can't interrogate that. 0 10 0 3 99 That wouldn't be particularly illuminating. 0 79 0 1 99 The badge would hardly impress that. 0 116 0 1 99 Why leave the mask there? 0 125 0 1 99 The bones wouldn't be useful there. 0 130 0 1 99 That record book is evidence. Gabriel doesn't want to leave it there. 0 43 0 1 99 There's no reason to use the mold there. 0 42 0 1 99 Using the snake bracelet there wouldn't help. 0 66 0 1 99 There's no need to write on that. 0 32 0 1 99 Gabriel doesn't want to waste the money there. 0 104 0 1 99 The chamber pot wouldn't do much good there. 0 28 0 1 99 Why use the clay there? 0 31 0 1 99 The crocodile mask wouldn't do much there. 0 15 0 1 99 Gabriel doesn't want to sketch that. 0 34 0 1 99 There's no reason to put the drawing there. 0 18 0 1 99 The book wouldn't help with that. 0 129 0 1 99 The flashlight couldn't make that any clearer. 0 22 0 1 99 Putting the scales there wouldn't help. 0 46 0 1 99 Why put the oil there? 0 105 0 1 99 Gabriel can't use the scroll on that. 0 5 0 1 99 There's no reason to use the gift certificate here. 0 50 0 1 99 The photo wouldn't affect that. 0 37 0 1 99 Gabriel prefers to keep Gunter's journal close at hand. 0 72 0 1 99 Why gel that? 0 19 0 1 99 Gabriel doesn't want to lose those notes. 0 87 0 1 99 That icon is currently disabled. 0 123 0 1 99 The key doesn't seem to work on that. 0 20 0 1 99 0 23 0 1 99 There's no point in using the pattern there. 0 7 0 1 99 Gabriel sees nothing unusual. 0 7 0 2 99 Gabriel sees nothing out of the ordinary. 0 7 0 3 99 Gabriel sees nothing that catches his attention. 0 115 0 1 99 0 33 0 1 99 Leave the lucky dog lying around? For shame! 0 4 0 1 99 Gabriel can see that just fine without magnification. 0 121 0 1 99 Gabriel doesn't need to disguise that. 0 120 0 1 99 0 21 0 1 99 0 86 0 1 99 There doesn't seem to be a way to put that on the card. 0 56 0 1 99 The envelope would do little good there. 0 44 0 1 99 The key doesn't work there. 0 29 0 1 99 (ARCC)Now, Mosely wouldn't appreciate that. 0 9 0 1 99 There is nothing to move there. 0 9 0 2 99 Why move that? 0 9 0 3 99 Moving that would do little good. 0 9 0 4 99 Gabriel can't move that. 0 17 0 1 99 0 26 0 1 99 0 41 0 1 99 The newspaper clipping would do little good there. 0 61 0 1 99 Why put the note there? 0 6 0 1 99 There is nothing to open or close there. 0 6 0 2 99 Gabriel can't open or close that. 0 6 0 3 99 That doesn't seem to work that way. 0 8 0 1 99 There is nothing to operate there. 0 8 0 2 99 Gabriel can't see a way to use that. 0 8 0 3 99 That doesn't work that way. 0 8 0 4 99 That doesn't operate. 0 49 0 1 99 The phone book page would do little good there. 0 67 0 1 99 0 12 0 1 99 Gabriel can't take that. 0 12 0 2 99 That doesn't seem to be removable. 0 12 0 3 99 Gabriel can't see any way to pick that up. 0 12 0 4 99 Gabriel doesn't want to take that with him. 0 12 0 5 99 Gabriel doesn't need to carry that around. 0 48 0 1 99 There's no point in using the patterns that way. 0 24 0 1 99 0 64 0 1 99 Gabriel can't see a way to use the collar there. 0 101 0 1 99 Why use the dagger on that? 0 14 0 1 99 Gabriel doesn't need to share that letter. 0 39 0 1 99 0 122 0 1 99 Draping the robe over that would be pointless. 0 106 0 1 99 Putting salt there would be pointless. 0 107 0 1 99 Why cut that? 0 73 0 1 99 The priest's garb would make little impression on that. 0 74 0 1 99 Gabriel can't use the black shirt that way. 0 60 0 1 99 Gabriel wouldn't want to track that. 0 108 0 1 99 0 84 0 1 99 (RRCC.

0 0 0 1 99 Those two objects would have no effect on each other. 0 0 21 1 99 Gabriel is carrying nothing. 0 0 22 1 99 0 0 17 1 99 This is the last page of inventory. 0 0 18 1 99 This is the first page of inventory. 0 68 0 1 97 This window shows Gabriel's inventory. 0 4 0 1 99 Gabriel can see that just fine without magnification. 0 4 21 1 99 Gabriel is already using the magnifying glass. 0 6 0 1 99 That object does not open. 0 8 0 1 99 That object cannot be operated. 0 58 0 1 99 That item cannot be read. 91 68 0 1 97 The ARROW will allow you to select an inventory item for use in the game or on another inventory item. Click on the ARROW, then click the ARROW cursor on an inventory item. 27 7 0 1 99 Gabriel is carrying Mosely's badge. 27 58 0 1 99 The badge says "New Orleans Police Department" and "Detective Mosely." 41 7 0 1 99 Grace actually managed to find a book on the Rada drum code. 41 6 0 1 3 41 58 0 1 3 !!!Do not print this. Comment msg only. 105 7 0 1 99 "Ancient Digs of Africa" by Professor Seymore Shards. 105 6 0 1 99 105 58 0 1 99 Gabriel opens "Ancient Digs of Africa." 105 58 0 2 99 "The most fascinating archaeological site in Africa is the great snake mound in the People's Republic of Benin, located 50 miles south of the capital, in the Red Basin." 105 58 0 3 99 "Like the snake mounds of North America, the origin and meaning of these great mounds remain a mystery, though, clearly, they were the result of profound and urgent spiritual belief." 105 58 0 4 99 "Unlike other snake mounds, the African example is a double snake mound--a small snake ring within a larger snake ring. The mound is thought to have housed an ancient temple." 105 58 0 5 99 "Although archaeologists have explored the mound site, the interior remains largely unchanged from ancient times." 105 58 0 6 99 "This is partially due to stringent Government regulations, and partially to local superstition. The local people regard the mound with fear, and won't go near it." 105 58 0 7 99 Gabriel looks at the picture again. 66 7 0 1 99 The book looks like an accountant's record book. The cover is printed with the words "Gedde Tribe." 66 6 0 1 3 66 58 0 1 3 !!!Do not print this. Comment msg only. 37 7 0 1 99 It's a clay mold of Madame Cazaunoux's snake bracelet. 37 6 0 1 99 The clay doesn't work that way. 37 58 0 1 99 38 7 0 1 99 Sam's replica of Madame Cazaunoux's snake bracelet looks just like the original. 38 58 0 1 99 There's no writing on the bracelet. 47 7 0 1 99 It's a piece of brick. 31 7 0 1 99 One hundred dollars in cash--that's the most money Gabriel's had in his pocket in two years. 31 58 0 1 99 The money says "In God We Trust." 29 7 0 1 99 It's a technical drawing of St. Louis Cathedral. 29 6 0 1 99 29 58 0 1 99 There's nothing written on the drawing. 102 7 0 1 99 The chamber pot is old but clean. 102 58 0 1 99 There's the name of a porcelain manufacturer on the bottom of the chamber pot, but that's about it. 102 106 0 1 99 (RRCC)That's an interesting thought, but there would be less chance of spilling the salt if Gabriel put the chamber pot down first. 13 0 0 1 99 There's no reason to make a clay impression of that. 13 7 0 1 99 Gabriel is carrying a lump of clay from the banks of Lake Pontchartrain. 13 6 0 1 99 13 58 0 1 99 80 7 0 1 99 Hartridge's notes are scribbled on notepad paper. 79 7 0 1 99 Gabriel reads through the pages Wolfgang marked. He reads of Gunter Ritter's journey to Charleston as Witch-hunter, hired by the townsmen to solve a series of ritualistic murders.... 79 7 0 2 99 He reads about Gunter's meeting with a beautiful slave woman, Tetelo, and of Gunter's tormenting urges for her. 79 7 0 3 1 "(SPEAKING OF A GUY WHO'S TORMENTED BY LOVE)Poor bastard!" 79 7 0 4 99 He reads of their physical union and passion, and of Gunter's investigation into the murders. The victims were all crew members on a certain slaving expedition to Africa, it seems. 79 7 0 5 99 The second-to-the-last entry describes Gunter's plan to set a trap for the coven committing the murders. He'd found the name of one of the surviving members of the crew--a man now living in the West Indies.... 79 7 0 6 99 Gunter has spread a false rumor that the man is returning to Charleston. He, himself, will impersonate the sailor and allow himself to fall into the hands of the coven. 79 7 0 7 99 Naturally, Gunter has arranged for able-bodied assistants to follow and attack the coven before they can do him harm. 79 7 0 8 1 "(ADMIRING)Ballsy son-of-a-bitch, wasn't he?" 79 7 0 9 99 Gabriel turns to the final entry of the journal.... 79 7 0 10 3 !!!This is the text for the final pages (in art--here for translation purposes only): Dearest Father: I offer these final words as apology for the failure I have made of my life and the harm I have done our sacred family office. Last night I learned that the women I wrote of, Tetelo, was the witch I sought. I committed terrible crimes, Father. First, I loved this witch. Second, I betrayed her. Third, I used our sacred family power to free her and aid her in destroying this colony. The talisman is gone--Tetelo took it. I can but pray for thy eventual forgiveness, for thy swift recovery of the talisman, and that my punishment in Hell will be long and bitter. Thy undeserving son--Gunter 82 7 0 1 99 The partial pattern from the crime scene intrigues Gabriel. What does it mean? 72 7 0 1 99 The police file contains partial patterns from the first six Voodoo Murders. 92 7 0 1 99 93 7 0 1 99 74 7 0 1 99 Somewhere there's a New Orleans phone book missing one of its "C" pages. 77 7 0 1 99 The book contains several pages of Rada drum codes. 73 7 0 1 99 The artist's reconstruction of the Voodoo Murders pattern looks accurate to Gabriel. Something about it seems vaguely familiar--and creepy! 69 7 0 1 99 (RRCC. DARK)Images haunt the pages of Philip Knight's sketchbook the way they must have haunted his mind. 69 7 0 2 99 The images touch a deep chord in Gabriel. So familiar are they, that he finds it hard to believe they aren't from his own subconscious. 106 7 0 1 99 The double ring snake mound in the People's Republic of Benin. 106 7 0 2 99 Creepy, isn't it? 81 7 0 1 99 The Gedde tribe record book contains the names and Rada drum codes for tribal members. 71 7 0 1 99 Gabriel gazes at the translation of the code that Moonbeam gave him, pondering who wrote it, and for whom it was meant. 83 7 0 1 99 Gabriel gazes at the translation of the second Voodoo code message. A few letters are still missing. 70 7 0 1 99 Looking at the series of crosses, Gabriel can't help but think that they have a pattern and meaning he is not comprehending. 84 7 0 1 99 75 7 0 1 99 The fortuneteller's veil is studded with sequins. 75 4 0 1 99 76 7 14 1 99 That sequin looks a little strange. Why, it's a snake scale! 76 7 15 1 99 There's a snake scale caught on the veil. 76 4 0 1 99 78 7 0 1 99 It's a sequin. 78 4 0 1 99 62 7 0 1 99 The Ritter dagger is solid, weighty, and highly polished. 62 58 0 1 99 The dagger is unmarked. 90 68 0 1 97 The PLAY icon will erase the inventory window and return you to the game. 107 7 0 1 99 Gabriel got the flashlight free in the mail when he ordered a magazine subscription.

I think there's a book on snakes around here somewhere, though." 7 54 91 4 1 "Okay. Thanks." 7 54 92 1 2 "I told you, nothing. I hope you don't think this subject is erotic. It's not." 7 54 21 1 1 "How do you like working at St. George's Books?" 7 54 21 2 2 "Well, it's not exactly a HUGE intellectual challenge..." 7 54 21 3 2 "...although the math in your record books could confuse Einstein." 7 54 21 4 2 "Still, I love old books, and it's a nice way to pay the bills while I explore the city for a summer. If you ever pay me, that is." 7 54 5 1 1 7 54 71 1 2 "St. John's Eve? Never heard of it. It must be a local custom.

There was a traveling preacher back then--a big fella named Reverend Jim. I even remember his slogan--'Come to Me to find your Way.'" 4 83 188 3 26 "Your grandad was sitting right behind me and my girlfriend Alma, and at one point ole Reverend Jim was flinging his hair around with his fire 'n brimstone antics...." 4 83 188 4 26 "And a piece of it--one of those small add-on doos for men--went flying off. I swear Harrison and I were the only ones that noticed!" 4 83 188 5 26 "We both started laughing to beat the band! Everyone looked at us like we were a couple of loonies. It was then I knew that he was for me." 4 83 187 1 1 "(ARCC)Tell me about before you met Grandaddy." 4 83 187 2 26 "Well, you know I was born Rebecca Wright. My daddy owned a lot of land outside of town. We grew peas, corn, cotton--all kinds of things." 4 83 187 3 26 "It was a good childhood, but my father was very strict. He didn't much let me out of his sight." 4 83 190 1 1 "Just tell me anything at all." 4 83 192 1 26 "I had your father when I was twenty-two. The doctors told me I couldn't have any more after him, so I'm afraid I spoiled him rotten." 4 83 193 1 26 "I never loved any man but your grandfather, and I never will." 4 83 194 1 26 "(ARCC)I hate to admit it, but I was a jealous little thing when your grandaddy and I were younger. I loved him so ferociously...and he DID attract the eyes of the ladies--whether he wanted to or not." 4 83 195 1 26 "I get lonely sometimes, but I have lots of girlfriends in the neighborhood. I call one of them if I'm feeling blue." 4 83 196 1 26 "(MOCK HARSHLY)I wish you'd settle down and give me a great-grandchild!" 4 83 196 2 1 "Oh, Gran!" 4 83 186 1 1 "What do you do all day?" 4 83 186 2 26 "You know how I love to knit and work in my garden. I also take long walks. It's the only way to keep an old body like mine from stiffening up." 4 83 186 3 1 "You're not old!" 4 83 186 4 26 "(SWEETLY CHIDING)Don't be foolish! I'm older than the hills!" 4 83 9 1 1 4 83 9 2 26 "Why no, Dear. Do you mean Mardi Gras masks?" 4 83 9 3 1 "Never mind, Gran." 4 83 13 1 1 4 83 160 1 26 "Black Voodoo? Is that something new?" 4 83 160 2 1 "I don't think so." 4 83 160 3 26 "I don't know much about any kind of Voodoo, Gabriel." 4 83 161 1 26 4 83 6 1 1 4 83 6 2 26 "Mmmm. <Something> without <something>, I think. My French is so rusty! I swear, my mind is going!" 4 83 6 3 1 "It's okay. Thanks." 4 83 11 1 1 4 83 11 2 26 4 83 46 1 1 "Tell me something about Grandad." 4 83 177 1 26 "Your grandad immigrated to America when he was 21." 4 83 177 2 26 "He worked his way through school, met and married me, and we had your father, Philip." 4 83 183 1 26 "Since you're so interested in family history these days, why don't you go by St. Louis Cemetery #1 and visit the family tomb? It would be a sweet gesture." 4 83 183 2 1 "Maybe I will." 4 83 178 1 26 "Your grandad supported me and your father with bookkeeping. I'll tell you what, though, he hated every minute of it. Didn't really like bookkeeping one bit." 4 83 178 2 26 "Maybe that was why he had the worst luck with jobs! Oh, the nights he'd come home afraid to tell me he'd lost another! And I would tell him, it didn't matter to me, but he felt ashamed, Gabriel." 4 83 179 1 26 "Harrison was only thirty-six when he died. Your father was eight years old at the time. Your grandad was hit by a streetcar in the business district." 4 83 179 2 26 "It took me nearly a year to believe he was really gone." 4 83 179 3 1 "I'm sorry, Gran." 4 83 179 4 26 "I know you are, Dear." 4 83 180 1 26 "Did you know that your grandad was a poet? He was! He wrote the most beautiful poetry for me when we were courting." 4 83 180 2 26 "I always thought he should have done something with that gift, but he was such a practical man. Didn't believe in chasing after dreams." 4 83 181 1 26 4 83 182 1 26 4 83 49 1 47 This is a place holder 4 83 197 1 1 "Do you know anyone named Heinz Ritter?" 4 83 197 2 26 "Heinz Ritter...." 4 83 197 3 26 "Oh, Gabriel! Where did you hear that name?" 4 83 197 4 1 "(ARCC)I found a letter in Grandaddy's clock." 4 83 197 5 26 "<sigh>I promised I'd never tell you or your father, but I suppose it doesn't matter now." 4 83 197 6 1 "TELL me, Gran." 4 83 197 7 26 "Your grandad's name was Heinz Ritter before he came to America. He changed it to Harrison Knight legally when he arrived." 4 83 198 1 1 "Why did Grandad change his name?" 4 83 198 2 26 "I don't know. I tried to ask him about his family, his life before America, but he didn't want to talk about it." 4 83 198 3 26 "He never even told me about his name change--I found out one day when I saw his passport in a drawer." 4 83 198 4 26 "Since he obviously found it painful, I never questioned him about it, but I'm sure it wasn't trouble with the law. Your grandad was the best man I ever knew." 4 83 199 1 1 "Didn't Grandad ever say ANYTHING about his past or his family?" 4 83 199 2 26 "Only that his family was 'crazy' and that he never wanted to see them again!" 4 83 199 3 26 "He believed in some family curse, thought that he could spare Philip and Philip's children from what he called 'old nightmares.'" 4 83 199 4 26 "Whatever Harrison wanted to spare you, though, it cost him plenty! He never did sleep well, and he would often get a faraway, guilty look in his eyes." 4 83 199 5 26 "He was wrestling with something he thought he SHOULD be doing, someplace he thought he OUGHT to be." 4 83 199 6 26 "I don't know how he could think that he should be anywhere but with me and our child. It's a terrible way to live." 4 83 200 1 1 "Do you know anything else about Heinz Ritter?" 4 83 200 2 26 "I've told you all I know about your grandad's past." 4 83 44 1 1 "Tell me about yourself." 4 83 184 1 26 "Me? Surely you have something more interesting to talk about!" 4 83 184 2 1 "Oh, come on, Gran!" 4 83 184 3 26 "All right, Dear. What do you want to hear?" 4 83 185 1 26 "What more do you want to know, Dear?" 4 83 8 1 1 4 83 103 1 26 "Gabriel, my goodness! What ARE you up to these days?" 4 83 103 2 1 "Nothing, Gran, really." 4 83 103 3 26 "You'd better not be! You know you're the only family I have left." 4 83 103 4 1 "I know, Gran. It's okay." 4 83 104 1 26 "I don't believe in such things, Gabriel. But if there IS one, YOU stay away from it!" 4 83 104 2 1 "Yes, Gran." 4 83 45 1 1 "Tell me about our family." 4 83 45 2 26 "Who would you like to hear about? Your grandad, your father, or your mother?" 4 83 7 1 1 4 83 107 1 26 "Marie Laveau! Of course! She was that Voodoo woman, wasn't she?" 4 83 107 2 26 "She preyed on people's fears and superstitions, is what I think! There are always those willing to take other people's money for nothing." 4 83 107 3 26 "You stay away from people like that, Gabriel." 4 83 107 4 1 "<sigh> Yes, Gran." 4 83 108 1 26 4 83 48 1 1 "Tell me about my mother." 4 83 172 1 26 "Your mother was Margaret Templeton when your father met her. She came from a very wealthy Creole family in New Orleans." 4 83 172 2 26 "She was beautiful and reckless. She was madly in love with your father, of course, but I also think she liked defying her family." 4 83 173 1 26 "Your mother's family refused to give her money after the marriage. All she had left was a modest trust fund from her great-aunt, who happened to like Philip." 4 83 173 2 26 "(NRCC??)The remainder of your mother's trust fund became yours when she died. That's what you used to open your book shop." 4 83 174 1 26 "The Templetons are all gone now--every last one of them. They never wanted anything to do with us, of course. What a waste." 4 83 175 1 26 4 83 176 1 26 4 83 3 1 1 4 83 109 1 26 "New Orleans is very Southern, of course, though not as much as it used to be when I was a girl. It's gotten much more influenced by the east coast and that California stuff!" 4 83 109 2 26 "Still, it hasn't changed as much as other places, I reckon. We've always been happy here." 4 83 110 1 26 "My goodness, Boy, you've lived here all your life, just like me! I can't tell you much that you don't already know." 4 83 162 1 26 4 83 163 1 26 4 83 12 1 1 4 83 12 2 26 4 83 47 1 1 "Tell me about my father." 4 83 164 1 26 "Your father was my only child. How we adored him!" 4 83 164 2 26 "Philip suffered from terrible nightmares, just like your grandad did! They were two peas in a pod." 4 83 165 1 26 "When Philip met your mother, it was love at first sight. They were married two weeks later! Never looked at a girl seriously until then--and he'd looked at plenty!" 4 83 165 2 26 "You have your father's way with women, Gabriel--and your grandad's <blush>!" 4 83 166 1 26 "I wanted to just lay down and die when he and your mother were killed in that car crash when you were only eight! It was the thought of taking care of you that kept me going, Gabriel." 4 83 166 2 26 "The police say your father swerved off the road after being frightened by something. Perhaps a deer in the road--or a wild cat." 4 83 167 1 26 "Your grandad wanted Philip to have a 'normal life.' He was obsessed by that thought. He pushed Philip to go to law school, but Philip was driven to art." 4 83 167 2 26 "He painted almost in a daze, he would get so inside himself when he worked!" 4 83 168 1 26 "He always hated that it was Margaret's money that supported the three of you when his painting couldn't." 4 83 168 2 26 "I kept telling him, 'Try something more cheerful--like a landscape or two,' but he couldn't do it. His work was just too dark and disturbing for the public, you know." 4 83 169 1 26 4 83 170 1 26 4 83 171 1 26 4 83 15 1 1 4 83 113 1 26 "Rada drums? Your father had a little drum set when he was small...." 4 83 113 2 1 "I don't think that's quite the same thing, Gran." 4 83 113 3 26 "Well, your family's always been in the arts, but no musicians so far." 4 83 114 1 26 4 83 14 1 1 4 83 115 1 26 "Schattenj„ger? Schattenj„ger. How odd, Gabriel. I haven't heard that word in years!" 4 83 115 2 26 "My goodness, you've given me a chill! Your grandad used to say that sometimes in his sleep." 4 83 115 3 1 "Really? Do you know what it means?" 4 83 115 4 26 "No, I'm afraid not. I asked him about it once. I don't think he answered me. Odd." 4 83 115 5 1 "Hmmm.

Milk snakes and garter snakes are also around these parts, but they can't hurt you." 4 83 117 4 1 "Thanks, Gran." 4 83 118 1 26 4 83 5 1 1 4 83 119 1 26 "St. John's Eve? Hmmm. I remember when I was a girl, we always had a St. John's Eve mass." 4 83 119 2 26 "The mass was said at midnight and we held candles...." 4 83 119 3 26 "One time, on the way home, we were waylaid by a large group of drunken revelers. They didn't hurt us, but I was frightened!" 4 83 119 4 26 "My father was furious! We never went to St. John's Eve mass after that." 4 83 120 1 26 "I haven't celebrated it in years, Gabriel. I'm sure there's still mass in the more traditional churches, but I don't go." 4 83 10 1 1 4 83 10 2 26 "What, Dear?" 4 83 10 3 1 "(RRCC. MISSED. TO GRAN. KIND)Never mind." 4 83 1 1 1 4 83 125 1 26 "Voodoo? What an odd question, Gabriel!" 4 83 125 2 26 "Of course, you always were interested in monster movies and all that other weird stuff. You get that from your father and grandad." 4 83 125 3 26 "I don't know anything about it, Dear. Of course, it was very big in New Orleans at one time, but you don't hear so much about it these days." 4 83 125 4 26 "Too much else in the world to worry about, I guess." 4 83 126 1 26 4 83 2 1 1 4 83 2 2 26 "Oh, Gabriel! Nothing, and I don't want to! I sometimes wonder what this world is coming to!" 4 83 50 1 1 "Do you know anyone named Wolfgang Ritter?" 4 83 201 1 26 "Wolfgang Ritter? Er...no, Dear." 4 83 201 2 1 "Hmmm. Odd." 4 83 202 1 26 "As I said, your grandad's surname was originally Ritter." 4 83 202 2 26 "I never learned much about his family, but from things he said I always thought he had a brother back in Germany." 4 83 202 3 26 "I don't know if Wolfgang Ritter is related to your grandad or not." 4 83 203 1 26 4 82 56 1 1 "What are your plans for the future?" 4 82 56 2 8 "Well, you know, I don't like to count my chickens before they're hatched, but...." 4 82 56 3 8 "(ARCC)I don't see why I can't be the Chief of Police of New Orleans someday." 4 82 56 4 8 "I already know the Mayor, and my record is one of the best in the department." 4 82 56 5 1 "(PRETENDING SINCERITY)I'm sure it's just a matter of moments, Mostly." 4 82 56 6 8 "Yeah, yeah. You'll see." 4 82 9 1 1 4 82 9 2 8 "Animal masks? You mean like those Halloween masks they sometimes use in robberies?" 4 82 9 3 1 "I don't think so. More like REAL animals." 4 82 9 4 8 "Never ran across anything like that." 4 82 13 1 1 4 82 13 2 8 "Black Voodoo? Sounds like a put-on to me." 4 82 6 1 1 4 82 6 2 8 "Hell, no. Is that French? My mother spoke it, but I always had a hard enough time just speakin' English." 4 82 6 3 1 "(RRCC. MISSED. TO MOSELY. SARCASTIC)True enough." 4 82 37 1 1 "How about getting me some coffee?" 4 82 94 1 8 "Coffee? You want coffee?" 4 82 94 2 1 "Should that surprise you?" 4 82 94 3 8 "Nah, you've always been a caffeine addict. It's just that what we got here hardly qualifies." 4 82 94 4 1 "So, I'm desperate." 4 82 94 5 8 "It's your stomach. I'll get you some when we're done talkin'." 4 82 94 6 1 "That long?" 4 82 94 7 8 "All right! I'll go now!" 4 82 95 1 8 "What am I, your slave?" 4 82 95 2 1 "Hey, I'm working my butt off here!" 4 82 95 3 8 "Yeah, yeah. Fine." 4 82 96 1 8 "No way! Enough is enough!" 4 82 96 2 1 "PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE!" 4 82 96 3 8 "All right! All right! Just shut the hell up!" 4 82 41 1 1 "Crash is dead!" 4 82 100 1 8 "What? What're you talkin' about? I just let him go this morning." 4 82 100 2 1 "Yeah, well, that turned out to be a brilliant move--though they probably would have gotten him anywhere...." 4 82 100 3 8 "They? You're losin' it, Knight." 4 82 100 4 1 "It was the Voodoo cult--they did it! Crash said...." 4 82 100 5 8 "You're an amateur, so lemme give you some advice. Crash is--was--a junkie. Ya gotta read through the hallucinations, know what I mean? Where's the body, anyway?" 4 82 100 6 1 "St. Louis Cathedral." 4 82 100 7 8 "(ARCC)Lovely. Well, we'll make sure he's picked up sometime today so he doesn't scare the shit out of some nun. But chill, Gabe. In this business, you see a lot of stiffs." 4 82 100 8 1 4 82 101 1 8 "What? What are you talkin' about? I let him go yesterday." 4 82 101 2 1 "Yeah, and I watched him die yesterday. At St. Louis Cathedral." 4 82 101 3 8 "At the cathedral? Guess he was tryin' to get a last minute A-train ticket, eh? Poor bastard." 4 82 101 4 1 "I think you should go find the body at the morgue. He was killed by the Voodoo cult. Crash said...." 4 82 101 5 8 "CRASH said? Did he mention pink elephants, too?" 4 82 101 6 1 4 82 102 1 1 "Aren't you going to investigate?" 4 82 102 2 8 "Civilians! Did you actually SEE someone kill him?" 4 82 102 3 1 "No. Actually, I was with him when he died. Could have been poison, though." 4 82 102 4 8 "Yeah, well, when they get the body in, they'll do a quick autopsy--standard procedure. If it's anything other than an overdose, I'll get a report." 4 82 102 5 8 "(NRCC)But it won't happen. I know these guys. Lock 'em up overnight, and they tend to overdo it the next day." 4 82 102 6 1 "Your professionalism is astonishing." 4 82 11 1 1 4 82 11 2 8 "You mean gumbo?" 4 82 11 3 1 "No, I mean Dam-bal-lah." 4 82 11 4 8 "Never heard of it." 4 82 60 1 1 "Oh, nothing. Never mind." 4 82 60 2 8 "It's your dime." 4 82 153 1 1 "Let me fill you in on what I've learned in the past five days." 4 82 154 1 8 "Okay. Have at it." 4 82 154 2 1 "Well, Malia Gedde is the head of the cartel. Dr. John is her right hand man." 4 82 154 3 8 "I learned that much. You sure know how to pick 'em, Knight." 4 82 154 4 1 "Uh-huh. She's not really responsible, though, because during these ceremonies she's 'ridden' by the spirit of her ancestor, Tetelo." 4 82 154 5 8 "(DRYLY)You don't say." 4 82 154 6 1 "It's true. Anyway, I have something--a talisman--that I can use against them. It will help, but they probably still have a power source somewhere in their hounfour." 4 82 154 7 1 "Also, this whole thing kind of ties in with my nightmares, see, and my family history. My family does this shadow hunting thing, and about three hundred years ago...." 4 82 154 8 8 "Look, don't confuse me, okay? You worry about all that metaphysical stuff, and I'll just try to catch the bad guys." 4 82 154 9 1 "Yeah, you'd never believe me anyway." 4 82 155 1 8 "That's okay. I've heard enough. I don't want to know any more!" 4 82 150 1 47 !!!Blank msg 4 82 151 1 1 "So, fill me in on what you've been doing for the past five days." 4 82 151 2 8 "I've been gettin' smart, that's what." 4 82 151 3 8 "They've got me runnin', I'll admit, but the day a bunch of drum-banging, mumbo-jumbo chanting magicians can catch ole 'light foot' Mosely is the day I die!" 4 82 151 4 1 "Can't argue with that logic." 4 82 151 5 8 "(ARCC)Now, these guys have it wired, I tell you! From the Mayor, to a couple of MAJOR judges, right down to the beat cops. The Geddes are untouchable from that angle!" 4 82 151 6 8 "(ARCC)But once I really started diggin', it was like I could see clearly. These guys are into EVERYTHING that happens in this city. And most people are scared shitless of 'em--or they don't know about 'em at all." 4 82 152 1 1 "What else have you found out?" 4 82 152 2 8 "Not a lot. You seem to know more about the inside of these guys than I do." 4 82 51 1 1 "How do you like working on the police force?" 4 82 51 2 8 "Are you kiddin'? You know I love bein' a cop! And New Orleans--it's the best place in the world to be one." 4 82 145 1 1 "What should we do about Grace?" 4 82 146 1 8 "Them Voodoo people have taken her, the goddamn bastards! We have to find her and save her, and we can't count on the police department for any help." 4 82 147 1 8 "I told you, we gotta find her! We sure ain't gonna help her by sittin' around here!" 4 82 42 1 1 "There's been another murder. A professor at Tulane." 4 82 128 1 8 "Oh, Christ! You're not gonna to start this again!" 4 82 128 2 1 4 82 128 3 8 "You know, you're really gettin' your ass in a sling over this thing, Knight." 4 82 128 4 1 "It's not about ME! Look, Hartridge's death looked just like Crash's. I'm telling you, they were both murdered--and by the same people who did the Voodoo Murders!" 4 82 128 5 8 "Did either Crash or this new guy have their hearts ripped out?" 4 82 128 6 1 "No." 4 82 128 7 8 "(ARCC)Then there's nothin' to link either to the Voodoo Murders' M.O. Besides that, the case is closed, Knight. If the coroner's report asks for a homicide investigation on either of these guys, fine!" 4 82 128 8 8 "But it's not gonna be related to the Voodoo Murders case unless WE find damn good reason to do so!" 4 82 128 9 1 4 82 129 1 8 "What? What're you talkin' about?" 4 82 129 2 1 4 82 129 3 8 "People die, Knight. Was the guy's heart ripped out?" 4 82 129 4 1 "Well...no, but...." 4 82 129 5 8 "Then there's nothin' to relate it to the Voodoo Murders case, which is CLOSED anyway. The coroner will pick him up. If he asks for a homicide investigation, we'll do one, otherwise...." 4 82 129 6 1 4 82 218 1 1 "He agreed to do some research for me! He calls me up this morning, tells me he's onto something big, and when I get over there, the guy's dead!" 4 82 219 1 8 "Look, if I were you, I wouldn't repeat that to anyone, because if I weren't an old friend of yours, I MIGHT take you seriously and lock you up." 4 82 219 2 8 "As it is, maybe you should start keeping your mouth shut and not involve other people with this shit, if you think it's so dangerous." 4 82 35 1 1 4 82 130 1 8 "For the book?" 4 82 130 2 1 "Sure.

Any idea what they do with them?" 4 82 85 4 8 "Don't even want to know." 4 82 85 5 8 "Also, the coroner says some of the victims had heart attacks before the incision--literally 'scared to death.'" 4 82 85 6 8 "The knife wounds are consistent with a long, narrow, wavy-edged knife. Probably a ritualistic dagger." 4 82 83 1 1 "What kind of evidence have you found?" 4 82 83 2 8 "No fingerprints. A few bare footprints." 4 82 83 3 8 "Found a few fibers, but not many.

Lake Pontchartrain was the seventh." 4 82 81 1 1 "Do you know anything about the killers?" 4 82 81 2 8 "At least 20 people attend the killings. We know this from the variety of footprints found at the scenes." 4 82 81 3 1 "Footprints! Aren't those as good as fingerprints?" 4 82 81 4 8 "Can be. But we'd have to have a suspect in custody first, and the suspect would have to match one of the few distinct prints we have." 4 82 81 5 8 "Most of the footprints are smudged, trodden over, unreadable." 4 82 81 6 8 "These guys are so casual in their expertise it's maddening--like they know we'll never find 'em." 4 82 84 1 1 "Describe the crime scenes." 4 82 84 2 8 "There's the corpse itself--minus the heart. Around where the body was killed, we find marks in flour and blood." 4 82 84 3 8 "There are traces of wax from candles, red and black. Ordinary wax candles, so the lab reports." 4 82 84 4 8 "Also blood and feathers of chickens, also goat's blood. And plenty of the victim's own, of course." 4 82 87 1 1 "Know anything about the victims?" 4 82 87 2 8 "The victims are all out-of-towners. We still don't know why." 4 82 86 1 1 "Any witnesses?" 4 82 86 2 8 "Nope. There's never been a single witness. No one's even heard a disturbance." 4 82 86 3 8 "It's damned weird--like they just don't want people to see, and so nobody sees nothin'." 4 82 3 1 1 4 82 109 1 8 "(ARCC)You and me grew up together, you tell me!" 4 82 109 2 8 "It's a pretty nice place, even seein' the stuff I see.

It's a Voodoun Loa." 4 82 111 3 8 "(RRCC)Speak English or shut up, Knight!" 4 82 111 4 1 "Sorry. Didn't mean to confuse you. Guess I'll take that as a no." 4 82 112 1 8 "Don't start with that again! I've already got a headache!" 4 82 112 2 1 "Sorry." 4 82 40 1 1 "Can I see the other six patterns?" 4 82 40 2 8 "Uh...sure. People like that kind of stuff, don't they?" 4 82 40 3 8 "Might make the book seem more mysterious." 4 82 40 4 8 "Go talk to Officer Franks.

Great! What'd ya think?" 4 82 89 2 1 "Astonishingly life-like." 4 82 89 3 8 "Yeah, that's what I thought. Got any more ideas for photos for the book?" 4 82 90 1 8 "So ya said. Did ya think of any other shots for the book?" 4 82 148 1 1 "Let's make a plan. What do you think we should do?" 4 82 148 2 8 "We need to find the headquarters of the Gedde cartel, rescue Grace, and dig up some concrete evidence so that I can take this straight to the FBI." 4 82 148 3 1 "Sounds easy." 4 82 148 4 8 "Uh-huh. Do you have any idea where their headquarters might be?" 4 82 148 5 1 "Perhaps." 4 82 148 6 8 "(ARCC)Well, you do seem to have a knack for sniffin' out this Voodoo stuff.

That's right! If only I had the tracker from my office!" 4 82 148 10 1 "I have it." 4 82 148 11 8 "Really? Good goin'! You give it to me and leave a signal device at the entrance to the headquarters." 4 82 148 12 1 "All right." 4 82 92 1 1 "A cop/author photo might be nice." 4 82 92 2 8 "(UNSURE)You and me? Together?" 4 82 92 3 1 "Why not? Of course, you'll have to try to tone down your masculinity." 4 82 92 4 8 "Well...okay. I'll call the police photographer." 4 82 91 1 1 "Let's take another cop/author shot." 4 82 91 2 8 "What for?" 4 82 91 3 1 "I don't think we got your best side." 4 82 91 4 8 "Really? Okay. I'll have Franks come in again." 4 82 93 1 1 "Nope. I think we have everything we need." 4 82 93 2 8 "Okay, but you shouldn't underestimate the power of beefcake, my friend." 4 82 15 1 1 4 82 113 1 8 "No." 4 82 113 2 1 "They're these African drums, and they're being used all over the French Quarter to send messages for the Voodoo cartel." 4 82 113 3 8 "Yeah, right. When them drums announce a blue-light special at OK-Mart, lemme know." 4 82 114 1 8 "Stop with the drums stuff, would ya?" 4 82 59 1 1 "Just tell me anything at all." 4 82 68 1 8 "Remember how we used to play Monkey-in-the-Middle? Hah! We used to piss off our Senior year teacher, what was her name, Ms. McKelly?" 4 82 68 2 8 "You'd act like you were gonna toss her an eraser or somethin', and then throw it to me over her head." 4 82 68 3 8 "And we used to do it at your Grans, too, like with the remote when she wanted to watch her soaps?" 4 82 68 4 1 "Yup. And it was a great way to pick up women in the library. Ah, those were the days!" 4 82 69 1 8 "You know, my doctor told me I've got a little family of ulcers startin'. I wish this case would end so I could get some rest for a change." 4 82 70 1 8 "My back hurts." 4 82 71 1 8 "For the book--I wanted to be an astronaut when I was young.

Couldn't you MAKE them interested?" 4 82 135 3 8 "With what? I've got seven bodies and still no leads!

You're gonna go locate the headquarters. I'm gonna go get some supplies. You're gonna signal me when you've found the headquarters. I'll meet you there." 4 82 149 3 8 "We go inside, find Grace, collect some evidence, and get outta there." 4 82 149 4 1 "Oh, yeah. Right." 4 82 14 1 1 4 82 115 1 8 "(CRACKING HIMSELF UP)No, hah!

They're ritualistic patterns used in Voodoo. You know, like those marks we found around the body." 4 82 121 3 8 "You know what the department says about that, Knight. That Voodoo stuff is faked." 4 82 121 4 1 "Yeah, well, they're wrong. These v‚v‚s...." 4 82 121 5 8 "(MRCC)Look, just stop worryin' about those marks.

We'll have to let him go tomorrow morning." 4 82 99 1 8 "(RRCC. ADAMANT)The case? What case? I TOLD you, the Voodoo Murders case is CLOSED!" 4 82 99 2 1 "How can you just CLOSE it? It's not solved, is it?" 4 82 99 3 8 "Oh, it's 'solved.' Turns out the Chicago Mafia was tryin' to invade local territory--use the Mississippi for drug running now that Florida's so hot." 4 82 99 4 8 "What we had here was a little resistance from the local 'businessmen.'" 4 82 99 5 8 "Word came in this morning that the Chicago group is giving up and pullin' out of New Orleans." 4 82 99 6 1 "But that doesn't bring the killers to justice!" 4 82 99 7 8 "Well, the boys upstairs seem to figure it this way--let the slime kill each other. Better the vermin we know than Chicago vermin, I guess." 4 82 99 8 8 "The attitude in the department is that we've just been done a huge favor--and they're probably right." 4 82 99 9 1 "What about the local cartel? Are you just gonna let them go?" 4 82 99 10 8 "At least they're part of US. We'll deal with them over time--always have. New Orleans is pretty clean that way, you know." 4 82 99 11 1 "Well, that's the illusion, isn't it?" 4 82 99 12 8 "Look, I'm not totally in agreement here, either, but what can I do? These guys are not about to get caught." 4 82 99 13 8 "I'm disappointed about the book, too. Next big murder case I get, I'll call ya in and we'll do that one up right, okay? In fact, I could probably dig up some old cases, and you could spice 'em up." 4 82 99 14 1 "No thanks!" 4 82 133 1 8 "I told you, it's closed!" 4 82 134 1 8 "I told you, it's goin' for shit." 4 82 1 1 1 4 82 125 1 8 "There's Voodoo that goes on in this city, sure!" 4 82 125 2 8 "I looked into it a bit at the beginning of this case." 4 82 125 3 8 "But the Voodoo stuff found at the crime scenes is all faked--it doesn't have anything to do with the real stuff. I know. I asked some experts." 4 82 125 4 8 "It's intimidation tactics, that's all." 4 82 126 1 8 "I told you, don't worry about that part of it. It's all faked." 4 82 127 1 8 "You're the big expert now, not me. This stuff is way beyond anything I was looking into at the beginning of this case." 4 82 2 1 1 4 82 74 1 8 "Lots. Can you be more specific?" 4 82 75 1 8 "What else do you want to know?" 4 82 76 1 8 "The case is closed! There's nothin' more to discuss!" 4 82 77 1 8 "Well, you and I know who did 'em, don't we?

But African slaves were imported not only by the United States but also into the West Indies where the French and Spanish ran plantation islands." 4 109 77 6 25 "Prior to 1803, the New Orleans area was owned by France. The French Creole in those days owned many African slaves." 4 109 77 7 25 "But the Creole did not permit their slaves to gather, giving no chance for Voodoo to breed here natively." 4 109 77 8 25 "(RRCC. RERECORD. LAST WORD IS 'REGION' NOT 'RELIGION'.)The Creole also knew enough about the 'corrupted pagan practices' of the West Indies slaves to ban the importing of slaves from THAT region." 4 109 78 1 1 "So how did Voodoo come to New Orleans?" 4 109 78 2 25 "After the Louisiana Purchase, American legislators relaxed regulations. Slaves were permitted to gather. The Americans also removed the ban on West Indies slaves." 4 109 78 3 25 "(RRCC. RERECORD. LECTURING.)Around the same time a slave revolt occurred in Santo Domingo--what is now Haiti. Between the lifting of the ban and the Haitian revolt, West Indies slaves began pouring into New Orleans." 4 109 78 4 25 "Some of them were free people of color--freed or escaped slaves. Some came with their white owners who were fleeing from the revolt." 4 109 79 1 1 "What happened when the West Indies slaves got here?" 4 109 79 2 25 "They brought Voodoo with them. The native slaves were more than enthusiastic about embracing it. It gave them POWER, Mr. Knight--if only in the form of a communal bond." 4 109 79 3 25 "Among the first meeting places were the Bayou St. John and the shore of Lake Pontchartrain." 4 109 79 4 25 "The early Voodoos were heavy snake worshippers, worshipping the one they called the Great Zombi." 4 109 80 1 1 4 109 80 2 25 "By 1817 the Voodoo activities were beginning to cause fear among the white slave owners. An ordinance was passed to forbid slave gatherings except in designated public areas at designated times." 4 109 80 3 25 "The time was Sunday afternoons and the place, Congo Square. The slaves and free people of color gathered to dance simulations of their Voodoo dances--right in sight of Creole society." 4 109 80 4 25 "Of course, they also continued to meet in private for the REAL thing." 4 109 81 1 1 4 109 81 2 25 "There were a variety of kings and queens at first--Voodoo priests and priestesses, but from about 1830 a single power emerged." 4 109 81 3 25 "This was a Voodoo queen named Marie Laveau. Marie Laveau ruled Voodoo in New Orleans for many years." 4 109 123 1 1 4 109 123 2 25 "I've given you as much detail as I can, Mr. Knight.

Many of the gris gris are similar, but Hoodoo does not have the religious aspects of Voodoo." 4 109 120 1 1 "Is there anything else I should know about Hoodoo?" 4 109 120 2 25 "Not if your interest is primarily in Voodoo." 4 109 120 3 25 "Hoodoo is of interest to those who study rural folk traditions, but it will not aid you in understanding true Voodoo." 4 109 8 1 1 4 109 8 2 25 "(MOCKING, VAGUELY THREATENING)Don't be ridiculous, Mr. Knight.

My displays speak for me." 4 109 103 1 25 "Not everyone can come see the museum, so I occasionally do public speaking on the subject of historical Voodoo." 4 109 103 2 1 "Anything coming up that I might attend?" 4 109 103 3 25 "No. But then, you have me all to yourself right now, do you not?" 4 109 93 1 1 "Why did you open a Voodoo museum?" 4 109 93 2 25 "The subject has fascinated me all my life--and I wanted to help preserve the cultural heritage it represents." 4 109 94 1 1 "What kind of background in Voodoo do you have?" 4 109 94 2 25 "(ARCC)Let us say that I cut my teeth on it, Mr. Knight. It is in my blood." 4 109 95 1 1 "Do you do anything besides run the museum?" 4 109 95 2 25 "No. The museum does not make me a rich man, but my material needs are simple. I prefer to focus on my one true interest in life." 4 109 96 1 1 "What are your own religious beliefs?" 4 109 96 2 25 "My beliefs are too personal--and too complex--to discuss with a layman, Mr. Knight." 4 109 7 1 1 "Tell me more about Marie Laveau." 4 109 84 1 25 "There were actually two Marie Laveaus--mother and daughter. Most people thought they were the same woman. Her 'continued youth' added to the mystique." 4 109 84 2 25 "(ARCC)The original--the mother--was also known as Widow Paris. It was she that began the empire." 4 109 84 3 25 "When the Widow Paris began to practice there were many Voodooiennes in the city. By 1830 she was Voodoo queen of all New Orleans." 4 109 85 1 25 "The Widow Paris was a hairdresser for rich Creole ladies. She also paid household servants to spy for her. Between the two, she knew everything about everyone who mattered in New Orleans." 4 109 85 2 25 "She was not above using her information to appear psychic, to intimidate, or even to blackmail." 4 109 85 3 1 "You sound as though you admire her." 4 109 85 4 25 "For a black woman in the mid 1800's to gain power is an incredible thing, Mr. Knight, however she achieved it." 4 109 86 1 25 "She kept a pet snake--danced with it, too. She held traditional Voodoo ceremonies out by the lake." 4 109 86 2 25 "She took herself seriously--very seriously--but she was not above selling tickets for her 'events' to curiosity-seekers." 4 109 86 3 25 "She was not above using Voodoo any way she could to make money, that is for certain." 4 109 86 4 25 "But if she had been in another line of work, in another age, that would been interpreted as entrepreneurial genius rather than a sign of fraudulence." 4 109 86 5 1 "Hey, you don't need to convince me. I admire anyone that can actually make a living." 4 109 87 1 25 "It was Marie Laveau who defined the Voodoo that is truly and uniquely the Voodoo of New Orleans." 4 109 87 2 25 "She invented hundreds if not thousands of spells, potions, charms, and incantations. These form the basis of the modern practice--not to mention the folk tradition of Hoodoo." 4 109 88 1 25 "Her daughter, Marie Glapion, took over when the Widow Paris got old. Most people thought it was the same Marie Laveau. Both Maries encouraged that point of view." 4 109 88 2 25 "The Widow Paris died in 1881. Marie Glapion had been reigning a long time by then." 4 109 88 3 25 "After the death of the Widow Paris, other Voodoo queens surfaced and by 1890, the cult was fragmented again. Marie Glapion just sort of faded away." 4 109 89 1 25 "The Laveau tomb--where one or both of the Maries are believed to be buried--is in St. Louis Cemetery #1." 4 109 89 2 25 "It is a popular shrine for practitioners and tourists alike." 4 109 89 3 25 "I, myself, take tours through the cemetery on a regular basis." 4 109 89 4 1 "Really?

I promise I'll be good." 4 110 128 2 5 "It's really out of the question." 4 110 36 1 1 4 110 54 1 5 "I suppose I don't really have a choice. What do you want to know, Detective?" 4 110 55 1 5 "What else do you want to know, Detective?" 4 110 8 1 1 4 110 8 2 5 4 110 37 1 1 "Can you tell me anything about what happened out at the lake?" 4 110 37 2 5 "I wish I could, but I've never seen or heard anything unusual at the lake, and I do spend quite a bit of time out there." 4 110 66 1 5 "I think this has gone on long enough. You're not really a detective, are you?" 4 110 66 2 1 "Who, me? Well, I AM on this case, Ms. Gedde." 4 110 66 3 5 "I saw you at the lake yesterday. I thought you MUST be with the police since you were there, but you don't act like a police officer." 4 110 66 4 5 "Besides, I'm rather certain that the OTHER man said his name was Mosely." 4 110 66 5 1 "All right. You caught me. I'm not with the police. My name is Gabriel Knight. I'm a writer working with Detective Mosely on a book." 4 110 66 6 5 "Well, Mr. Knight, now that we've established WHO you are, perhaps you can tell me the real reason you're here?" 4 110 66 7 1 "Well, I AM researching the book, and I thought you might have seen or heard something at the lake...." 4 110 66 8 5 "(FIRMLY)I don't like liars, Mr. Knight." 4 110 66 9 1 "Okay, okay. You're right. I really just wanted to see you again. You can be mad at me if you want, but I swear I've never done anything like this before...." 4 110 66 10 5 "Mr. Knight, you've lied about your identity and wasted my time with meaningless questions. If it weren't VAGUELY flattering, I'd really be angry. You're lucky I don't call the REAL police." 4 110 7 1 1 4 110 7 2 5 "I have heard of her, of course, but that's about it." 4 110 56 1 1 "Do you have a career?" 4 110 56 2 5 "A career? Being the head of the Gedde family is a twenty-four hour a day job. We have many holdings and many responsibilities--financial and otherwise." 4 110 56 3 5 "The management of our business affairs and properties leaves me with time for little else." 4 110 56 4 1 "Poor little rich girl?" 4 110 56 5 5 "(IRRITATED)Believe it or not, Detective, wealth DOES have its price." 4 110 57 1 1 "Tell me about your family." 4 110 57 2 5 "The Geddes? We're a very private family." 4 110 57 3 1 "How many people are there in your family?" 4 110 57 4 5 "Well, my mother just passed away...." 4 110 57 5 1 "I AM sorry." 4 110 57 6 5 "So am I. She was a magnificent woman. We were very close--I was an only child." 4 110 57 7 1 "And your father?" 4 110 57 8 5 "I never knew him." 4 110 57 9 1 "It's hard to believe that any man would leave a woman like you--or like your mother must have been." 4 110 57 10 5 "(COLD)He did not LEAVE, Detective...but, that's really none of your concern." 4 110 57 11 1 "I'm sorry. Go on." 4 110 57 12 5 "There are, of course, other Geddes in the city. I have a large extended family." 4 110 57 13 1 "I see." 4 110 16 1 1 "What kinds of things interest you?" 4 110 16 2 5 "I don't have a lot of free time, but I do appreciate the arts. Opera, symphony, ballet, fine art...." 4 110 16 3 5 "If you look around, you'll see that we collect African art, for example." 4 110 16 4 1 "Yes. It's very beautiful." 4 110 16 5 5 "It IS, Detective. It means a great deal to me." 4 110 58 1 1 "Do you have a husband? Boyfriend?" 4 110 58 2 5 "I'm very independent, Detective. The women in my family have always preferred it that way." 4 110 58 3 1 "So you've never been married?" 4 110 58 4 5 "No, and I never will be." 4 110 58 5 1 "What about children?" 4 110 58 6 5 "Yes. That is likely. Someday." 4 110 3 1 47 !!!Blank msg 4 110 47 1 1 "Tell me about your life in New Orleans." 4 110 47 2 5 "The Gedde family came to New Orleans in 1800. We worked very hard to get where we are." 4 110 47 3 5 "On the other hand, we've done a lot for this community." 4 110 47 4 1 "I can believe that. You're doing a lot for ME right now." 4 110 48 1 1 4 110 48 2 5 "I'm afraid I don't get out into New Orleans society much. Because of the Gedde money, we have slots in the best country clubs and on the best Mardi Gras courts." 4 110 48 3 5 "But, I must admit, I hate it. I avoid actually making an appearance unless it becomes absolutely necessary." 4 110 48 4 1 "I know about those courts. They're very exclusive." 4 110 48 5 5 "(DISDAINFUL)Yes, especially when it comes to people of MY race. That's why we don't turn down the appointments. It's a rare opportunity to rub their noses in it." 4 110 48 6 5 "But that's not where I spend my time. I have more important things to do with my life." 4 110 48 7 1 "That's admirable. Many women would love the chance to get caught up in that kind of life." 4 110 48 8 5 "I'm not ANY kind of woman you might be familiar with." 4 110 48 9 1 "Yes. I can see that." 4 110 49 1 1 4 110 49 2 5 "I don't know what else you want to hear, Detective. Anything you might care to know about my public life you can easily look up in the papers." 4 110 12 1 1 4 110 12 2 5 4 110 15 1 1 4 110 15 2 5 4 110 59 1 1 "I'd like to hear just about anything." 4 110 61 1 5 "I do a lot of charity work around the city--primarily in the prison and reform system. I'm not a professional Sociologist, but it does interest me." 4 110 62 1 5 "I have a business degree from Vanderbilt. I wanted to study Psychology, but my family's interests came first." 4 110 62 2 1 "Oh? Why not something like Law, then? Surely that would have been an asset to the family." 4 110 62 3 5 "Law? Please. I do have SOME morals, Detective." 4 110 63 1 5 "For the record, I'm twenty-eight, Detective." 4 110 64 1 5 "I have few friends. A woman in my position can't really afford them." 4 110 65 1 5 "I try to stay away from the media as much as possible. Last year there was that story about John Kennedy Jr. and I. The phone didn't stop ringing for weeks." 4 110 65 2 5 "I prefer to keep my private life PRIVATE. I would appreciate it if you would keep my name away from any public association with the police, Detective." 4 110 65 3 1 "Of course." 4 110 14 1 1 4 110 14 2 5 4 110 4 1 1 4 110 4 2 5 "I'm afraid I quite abhor them." 4 110 5 1 1 4 110 5 2 5 "I believe it's some sort of local holiday, but I don't know much about it." 4 110 10 1 1 4 110 10 2 5 4 110 1 1 47 !!!Blank msg 4 110 39 1 1 4 110 39 2 5 "Voodoo? Why would you want to know about that, Detective? It's rather...silly, isn't it?" 4 110 39 3 1 "There's nothing silly about the Voodoo Murders." 4 110 39 4 5 "But that Voodoo is faked. That's what I've read in the papers." 4 110 39 5 1 "That's what the papers say all right...." 4 110 39 6 5 "But you're not convinced?" 4 110 39 7 1 "No, frankly, I'm not. The police department isn't known for its imagination." 4 110 39 8 5 "Oh? Well, I can see that YOUR imagination is considerable." 4 110 40 1 1 4 110 40 2 5 "I really don't know much about it." 4 110 40 3 5 "Isn't there someplace in town that you can find out about that sort of thing? A museum or something?" 4 110 40 4 1 "I believe there is a museum." 4 110 40 5 5 "Then maybe you should check there." 4 110 41 1 1 4 110 41 2 5 "Quite sure." 4 110 2 1 1 4 110 51 1 5 "The murders?

You've been watching too many old horror movies. 4 8 0 1 99 The books cannot be operated. 4 12 0 1 99 The history books on that shelf don't interest Gabriel at the moment. 4 11 0 1 99 Gabriel stopped talking to the books once Grace came to work here. 5 7 0 1 99 That shelf holds used copies of the Dime-Strife series--"Secrets of Unsolved Ancient UFO Mysteries" and such. 5 7 0 2 99 They just LEAP out the door. 5 9 0 1 99 5 6 0 1 99 5 8 0 1 99 5 12 0 1 99 Gabriel's had all those books in the bathroom and doesn't care to read them again. 5 11 0 1 99 6 7 0 1 99 Old medical reference texts are stored on an upper shelf. Real old. 6 9 0 1 99 6 6 0 1 99 6 8 0 1 99 6 12 0 1 99 The old medical reference books are useless to Gabriel--and, apparently, to his customers. 6 11 0 1 99 7 7 0 1 99 (GK-AM2)Under the window are reference books: dictionaries, foreign language dictionaries, quotation books, and others.

In other words, nothing written by Gabriel. 8 9 0 1 99 8 6 0 1 99 Gabriel's not interested in opening the books on the table. 8 8 0 1 99 8 12 0 1 99 Gabriel finds those popular authors very mediocre. As though they would care. 8 11 0 1 99 9 7 0 1 99 The top shelf contains a set of German books that once belonged to Gabriel's grandfather. 9 9 0 1 99 9 6 0 1 99 9 8 0 1 99 9 12 3 1 99 Gabriel selects a volume of German poetry that he always found strangely compelling. 9 12 3 2 1 9 12 3 3 2 "That's nice.

Fortunately, there's no danger of that. 10 6 0 1 99 The bookrack doesn't open. 10 8 0 1 99 10 12 0 1 99 Gabriel isn't interested in the books on the rack. 10 11 0 1 99 11 7 0 1 99 The top shelf contains books on animals, including snakes and other reptiles. 11 9 0 1 99 11 6 0 1 99 11 8 0 1 99 11 12 0 1 99 Gabriel pulls down a book on snakes. 11 12 0 2 1 "Snakes are legless reptiles. Some snakes kill their prey with poison, some by constriction." 11 12 0 3 1 "A snake smells by tasting the air with its forked tongue.

To Nordstroms. 13 6 9 1 99 (RRCC. SARCASTIC)Gabriel opens the cash register to examine the take. Or, in the case of St. George's Books, the MIStake. 13 6 10 1 99 Gabriel checks the drawer again, just in case life as we know it changed significantly since he last looked. 13 8 0 1 99 Wishful thinking. 13 8 9 1 99 13 8 10 1 99 13 12 0 1 99 It's certainly light enough, but rather useless, as Gabriel well knows. 13 11 0 1 99 The cash register is silent, as usual. 14 10 0 1 99 14 7 0 1 99 Grace's chair. Gabriel's had occasion to envy it. 14 7 11 1 99 Grace's chair looks hastily abandoned. 14 9 0 1 2 "Real funny, Knight." 14 9 11 1 99 14 6 0 1 99 The chair doesn't work that way. 14 8 0 1 99 14 12 0 1 2 14 12 11 1 99 There's no point in moving the chair now. 14 11 0 1 99 The chair has nothing to say. 15 7 0 1 99 The chandelier is original. Gabriel finds it charming. 15 7 0 2 99 All right, all right. He can't afford to replace it. 16 0 0 1 99 Why would Gabriel want to do that to his coat? 16 7 0 1 99 Dramatic, isn't it? Gabriel didn't eat for three weeks after splurging on that coat. He has a thing for black leather. 16 12 0 1 99 It's a bit warm in here. Gabriel decides to wait until he leaves to put on his coat. 17 0 8 1 2 "Leave my coat alone, Gabriel." 17 0 12 1 99 Messing with Grace's coat would not solve anything. 17 10 0 1 99 17 7 8 1 99 Grace's coat is a simple, but classic, trench coat. Gabriel hates people with good taste. 17 7 12 1 99 Wherever Grace is, she's not wearing her coat. 17 9 8 1 2 17 9 12 1 2 17 6 8 1 2 17 6 12 1 2 17 8 8 1 2 17 8 12 1 99 17 12 8 1 2 17 12 12 1 99 Gabriel considers taking Grace's coat with him, but he decides against it. 17 11 0 1 99 Grace's coat is even less of a conversationalist than Grace herself. 18 7 0 1 99 The shop's mascot is an old, knight-shaped coat rack. 18 9 0 1 99 The coat rack's made a dent in the floor. If Gabriel moved it now, he'd have to fix the linoleum. 18 8 0 1 99 The only way to use the coat rack is by putting a coat on it. Well, there may be OTHER ways, but it's a bit heavy to lug into the bedroom. 19 10 0 1 99 19 7 0 1 99 Blessed caffeine. 19 9 0 1 99 The coffee pot would get cold anywhere else. 19 8 0 1 99 The coffee has already been made. 19 12 13 1 1 "Mmmm.

The front page has an article about the Voodoo Murders. 35 12 16 2 99 The article says that the victims are all identified as members of the underworld. "The general public of New Orleans is in no danger." 35 12 16 3 99 Police claim the "so-called Voodoo trappings" found at the crime scenes are fake--a scare tactic--and that the murders are not associated with any genuine practitioners. 35 12 16 4 99 Gabriel also scans the Aquarius horoscope for the day.... 35 12 16 5 99 Potential storms ahead.

The weather service is baffled by the series of bizarre storms that rocked the South yesterday. 35 12 11 2 99 (NRCC)Twenty died and close to a hundred were injured. The storms only accentuate the bad luck that seems to have gripped the South. 35 12 11 3 99 The crime rate for the past three days has peaked to unprecedented levels, and there have been fifty reports of food poisoning in New Orleans alone. 35 12 11 4 99 In other words, keep your heads down, folks, and pray that August will return us to sanity. 35 12 11 5 99 Warily, Gabriel reads his horoscope for the day.... 35 12 11 6 99 Gird thyself with mercy, arm thyself with righteousness. The final hour awaits. 35 12 11 7 1 "There's a schoolteacher somewhere who's damned confused." 35 12 17 1 99 Times Picayune, dated June 19, 1993. A front page article describes the most recent of the Voodoo Murders. Gabriel scans it but learns nothing new. 35 12 17 2 99 The article reiterates that the Voodoo aspect of the crimes is faked. Gabriel shivers. It looked real enough to him! 35 12 17 3 99 Elsewhere, there's an article about the history of Jackson Square. 35 12 17 4 99 Called "La Plaza d'Armas" under French rule, it was used for executions: firing squads, hangings, even impalement and breaking on the wheel. Yikes! 35 12 17 5 99 Of course, these days, it's mostly a hang out for tourists, street musicians, and local artists. 35 12 17 6 99 Gabriel also scans the Aquarius horoscope for the day.... 35 12 17 7 99 Chances of a dark star rising on this day. Do not trust your instincts. 35 12 17 8 1 "I feel a dark star rising all right! Grrowl!" 35 12 18 1 99 Times Picayune, dated June 20, 1993.

The lecture is at Tulane University. 35 12 18 3 99 Gabriel's horoscope for the day: An evil eye is upon you. Change course before it's too late. 35 12 18 4 1 "Lighten up!" 35 12 19 1 99 Times Picayune, dated June 21, 1993. Gabriel's eye is immediately drawn to an article about the Voodoo Murders. He scans it quickly. 35 12 19 2 1 "I don't believe this! They've closed the case!" 35 12 19 3 2 "What case?" 35 12 19 4 1 "The Voodoo Murders case!

What about the killers? And the Voodoo angle, they never got anything on that!" 35 12 19 7 2 "(MRCC)I know you were into it, Gabriel, but if it's over, that's hardly a NEGATIVE. Anyway, if you're that upset, why don't you talk it over with your pal Mosely?" 35 12 19 8 1 "You don't get it, Grace. Just...forget it, OKAY?" 35 12 19 9 99 Gabriel decides to check his horoscope, despite his disgust. 35 12 19 10 99 35 12 26 1 99 Gabriel skips the Voodoo Murders article (what a farce) and rereads his horoscope. 35 12 26 2 99 35 12 20 1 99 Times Picayune, dated June 22, 1993. Disgusted with the state of the Voodoo murder case, Gabriel turns right to his horoscope. 35 12 20 2 99 The shadow upon you is no longer reversible. 35 12 20 3 1 "Wonderful." 35 12 21 1 99 Times Picayune, dated June 23, 1993. 35 12 21 2 99 Gabriel finds an article about St. John's Eve. It discusses the day's Catholic roots and its adoption by Voodoo devotees. 35 12 21 3 99 In the early to mid 1800's, St. John's Eve was celebrated with elaborate Voodoo gatherings at Lake Pontchartrain, Bayou St. John, and other sites outside the city. 35 12 21 4 99 These days, the day is commemorated commercially in some of the local shops and a few churches still hold a St. John's Eve mass. 35 12 21 5 99 Despite his better judgment, Gabriel reads his horoscope. 35 12 21 6 99 Today you will either die, or your life will change forever. 35 12 21 7 1 "(RRCC.

There's nothing about the Voodoo Murders case in the paper today. 35 12 22 2 99 Gabriel finds a humorous tidbit under the "Life is Stranger than Fiction" column. Apparently, there were reports of ghosts in the Bayou St. John last night. 35 12 22 3 99 Various people called the newspaper with stories about hearing strange noises and seeing weird lights over the swamp. 35 12 22 4 99 Some folks claim it's the ghost of Marie Laveau. The paper relates it to similar 'delusions' that crop up every Halloween. 35 12 22 5 99 Gabriel knows better. 35 12 22 6 99 Gabriel's horoscope today reads.... 35 12 22 7 99 Wise is the warrior who knows when to fight and when to get the hell out of Dodge. 35 12 22 8 1 "God help me, I'm actually starting to listen to this guy!" 42 0 27 1 99 Death walks close to you today.

Do they all look alike?" 17 51 49 3 1 "Not at all. They're both constrictor scales and the coloring is the same. A python's coloring is quite individualistic." 17 51 49 4 8 "A PYTHON?" 17 51 49 5 1 "That's right. Hardly an indigenous snake to Louisiana. Somehow, some way, the Voodoo museum's python was at the scene of the Lake Pontchartrain murder." 17 51 49 6 8 "(ARCC)Well. I'd call that a lead all right. It certainly suggests certain lines of inquiry at the museum. Not bad work, Knight." 17 51 50 1 1 17 51 50 2 8 "If we can tie them into this Voodoo cult, we just might have somethin'." 17 51 51 1 1 17 51 51 2 8 "Whether or not the museum's involved with a legitimate Voodoo cult, though, is another matter.

That's cute, Gabriel. Almost looks legit.

An architectural artist reconstructed it for me from the partials." 17 16 55 1 1 17 16 55 2 8 "Really? So this is the whole pattern, huh? That's pretty good work, Knight." 17 16 55 3 8 "But that doesn't prove that this pattern is really connected to Voodoo." 17 16 56 1 1 17 16 56 2 8 "Really? So that's what Hartridge used, huh? I guess his analysis is on target, then." 17 16 56 3 8 "Okay. The murders were committed by a legitimate Voodoo cult. You proved your point." 17 16 57 1 99 17 40 14 1 1 17 40 14 2 8 "(ARCC. GK-AM1.

There are spiritual currents in this room that I can't always control." 11 13 21 2 1 "Thanks for the warning." 12 7 0 1 99 A small draped table displays a crystal ball. 13 7 22 1 99 A large, sluggish snake rests on the floor of the fancy bird cage. 13 7 23 1 99 13 7 23 2 99 Apparently, Magentia is not a fastidious housekeeper--a shed skin shares the cage with its original owner. 13 7 24 1 99 The cage is currently empty. 13 7 25 1 99 Except for a shed snake skin, the cage is currently empty. 13 9 0 1 1 "No thanks. I'll just leave it right where it is." 13 6 2 1 99 If Gabriel opened the cage now, he'd have to get close to that snake. 13 6 1 1 99 The cage is already open, and Gabriel doesn't feel it's his place to close it. 13 8 0 1 99 The cage is already doing everything it's going to do. 13 12 23 1 99 Magentia's snake looks a little sickly, but Gabriel would still rather NOT stick his hand in the cage. 13 12 24 1 99 Gabriel has no reason to stick his hand in that cage again. 13 12 25 1 99 Gabriel grabs the shed snake skin while Magentia is otherwise occupied. 15 0 28 1 27 "Welcome, Seeker.

What is known in the States as 'Voodoo' is actually an amalgamation of African religious systems, Voudoun, and European religions, primarily Catholicism." 12 0 1 4 40 "All of the sub-cults of African Voudoun have certain things in common. The most important is the worship of a pantheon of spirits instead of the single deity that the Christian and Moslem systems have." 12 0 1 5 40 "Some of these spirits are elementals, some relate to specific tasks or places, some represent important tribal leaders who have died." 12 0 1 6 40 "This spirit-worship is what makes Voudoun so easily adaptable. With all those spirits, it's no problem to add a few more. Say, for example, the Virgin Mary." 12 0 1 7 40 "At the height of tribal Africa, warfare was common. One tribe would conquer another, and the Loa important in the conqueror's tribal system would be adopted readily into the conquered tribe's Loa pantheon." 12 0 1 8 40 "In this way, many of the Voudoun cults spread and mingled throughout tribal Africa, enriching the belief system and causing innumerable offshoots." 12 0 1 9 40 "The basis for the Voudoun religion seems to be as old as man himself.
