Hunger Moon

Luna Touye Series #3

While strolling around Rights Square disguised as Suite Sue, Alma LeJeune encounters the ghost of Alicia Reilly, an indentured servant who was executed in January 1735 for the murder of her cruel employer, Wilbert Weiss.

The first woman to be hanged in Savannah, Georgia, Alicia was left hanging from the gallows for three days while bystanders gawked at her decomposing body. Taking the life of her employer was defensible. Hanging her was not.

Enraged over the harsh treatment and public humiliation thereafter of the young Irish immigrant, along with the knowledge that Weiss wasn’t punished in any way for his abusive behavior, Alma hunts down the descendants of those responsible for this undeserved execution.
