The post–Katrina New Orleans of THE CITY OF LOST FORTUNES is a place haunted by its history and by the hurricane’s destruction. Street magician Jude Dubuisson is likewise burdened by his past and by the consequences of the storm, because he has a secret: the magical ability to find lost things, a gift passed down to him by the father he has never known --- a father who just happens to be more than human. Jude has been lying low since the storm; he is hiding from his own power, his divine former employer, and a debt owed to the Fortune god of New Orleans. But his six-year retirement ends abruptly when the Fortune god is murdered, and Jude is drawn back into the world he tried so desperately to leave behind.
