The little bayou town of Alcide, Louisiana, nicknamed “Fort St. Jesus,” is flavored just right. Good times, good food and good people. Except for one strange weekend in September when the good people become the good food. Something big, weird and hungry is out there, and deputy sheriff Lexie Smith is on the case. Helping her are her old high-school buddies: Cam DeSelle, local vet and bait-store owner; Troy Pitre, the town’s mechanic; sex-toy saleslady Carla Fontanelli; and young Father Mike and Sister Joanie, Alcide’s source of spiritual strength and juicy gossip. Adding to Lexie’s worries are some meth-dealing gangbangers in town for a big drug deal and a category 3 hurricane bearing down on all of them. They’re just a few of the ingredients that’ll be thrown into the pot for one memorable weekend at Fort St. Jesus Bait and Tackle. Who’s the bait and who’s the tackle? Who will eat and who will be eaten?
