Max Corbett never wanted to return to New Orleans. The girl he'd loved had betrayed him... and now she was dead, killed by Hurricane Katrina. He returned to the crippled Big Easy to seek closure. What he got was a map. From official release/information:
From back of book: Barely six months after leaving New Orleans, history professor Max Corbett is returning to a place he hardly recognizes. The girl he'd loved--and lost--is dead, and the once-enchanted city has been devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Max has not planned much beyond Gabrielle's funeral--until a strange old man offers him a map and an insane proposition.
It looks like an ordinary tourist map, but it's supposedly marked with a trail of magical moments from New Orleans's history that might open a door to the past...a past where Max might be able to save Gabrielle--if he can deliver her from the terrifying evil that stole her away.
