Description
Now, for the first time ever, the shocking truth behind the 2010 Haitian earthquake can be told. Politics and the occult collide in the story of an American bride honeymooning in Port-au-Prince abducted by a Voodoo cult and turned into a zombie. The same dark force responsible for Haiti's poverty and misery is behind the girl's abduction. Now the Voodoo spirits are angry and only an earthquake can save Haiti and her! Newlyweds Evelyn and Dominick Bianchi choose Port-au-Prince for their honeymoon because the bride has long lost relatives there. One of her cousins, Bijou, is a famous Voodoo priestess. But an ominous feeling overwhelms Evelyn before the couple arrives. The feeling of dread continues... On her first night in Port-au-Prince Evelyn sees a ghost, the ghost of Toussaint Louverture, one of Haiti’s founding fathers. We learn she is his descendant, as is Bijou, her cousin. Bijou invites the newlyweds to lunch and poisons Evelyn. She begins hallucinating and mistakes another cousin for Toussaint Louverture, the apparition she saw the night before. Evelyn is under Bijou’s spell before she knows what hit her! Bijou invites the couple to a Voodoo ceremony that night where they meet Jolicoeur, a mysterious Haitian power broker who is a dirty old leach. Dominick and Evelyn are drugged during the ceremony and something goes terribly awry! Dominick wakes from his drug induced coma two days later in a Port-au-Prince hospital where a Haitian Police Inspector informs him Evelyn is dead. She burned to death in a fire! After viewing the charred remains Dominick doesn’t believe it’s his wife. He’s right! Bijou has turned Evelyn into a zombie, a living dead person, in a bizarre kidnap for ransom plot masterminded by Jolicoeur. Evelyn, in her zombie trance, communes with ancient ancestors including Baron Samedi, the Voodoo Spirit of Death. Through her trance we learn Baron Samedi placed a curse on Toussaint Louverture during the Haitian Revolution that amounted to a curse on Haiti’s future. Two centuries of poverty, misery, and tyranny followed, making life in Haiti hell on earth! Dominick, the groom, is in way over his head! Jolicoeur is the largest slave trafficker in the Caribbean. If Dominick doesn’t fork over his life savings Jolicoeur will happily sell his zombie bride to the highest bidder! Uncle Sam rides to the rescue in the person of Waldo Pell, a U.S. State Department liaison with murky ties to the C.I.A. Pell was going to arrest Jolicoeur before Evelyn’s abduction. Now he must save her from him!
About the author
In 1979 “Baby Doc” Duvalier, son of notorious dictator Francois “Papa Doc” Duvalier, opened Haiti to tourism for the first time since his father death in 1971. Michael Weber seized upon this window of opportunity to travel to Port-au-Prince. There he fell in love with Haiti, its people, art and culture. Sadly, Haiti’s open door policy slammed shut shortly thereafter. But Weber was hooked. He studied Haitian history, collected Haitian art, and pondered writing a movie about the impoverished land that he so loved. However, nothing he could conjure conveyed the magic he felt about Haiti until the earthquake of 2010 provided the creative impetus. Michael J. Weber is an screenwriter and author. He wrote “INVASION OF PRIVACY” (Thomson Reuters - 2004) -- an expose into hacking, corporate and government intrusion… And “CONFESSIONS OF AN INTERNET AUCTION JUNKIE” (Prima/Random House - 2000) -- the original bible on Internet auctions. Both have been translated into several languages.  His career began on Madison Avenue where Weber worked with top production companies, directors, photographers, and ad agencies. He produced over four hundred television commercials for Fortune 500 sponsors like Coke, McDonald's, and Budweiser.   Weber then moved to Hollywood where he developed a movie on Dr. Timothy Leary for Columbia Pictures. He developed several more biopics including one on the life of Lena Horn for MGM.   Weber and his representatives are currently packaging PORT-AU-PRINCE, the screenplay. This e-book marks Weber’s first foray into publishing.
