Eleven years ago, Texan Charlie Fairweather committed murder most foul: the ax killing of a voodoo priestess deep in a Louisiana swamp. The curse she uttered as she lay dying has plagued him throughout the intervening years, intensifying to such a degree that Charlie knows he must return to the scene of the crime and try to atone for his deed.
Charlie's disappearance has prompted his beautiful young wife to enlist the aid of a private investigator, a man who happens to be a lifelong friend, to find him. The detective, however, has an agenda of his own—an agenda that might be better served if Charlie is never found. Alive.
Eleven years ago, he murdered a voodoo priestess in a Louisiana swamp. Today, her dying curse compels him to return. Where something lurks, waiting . . . The Testament of Charlie Fairweather, a short story by Stephen M. DeBock.
