A timid rebel cook discovers something even grislier than the usual horrors of war: ghouls feeding off the dead... and the living. The Ghost of Naked Molly takes us back to old New Orleans on the eve of the Louisiana Purchase, where the ghost of a gorgeous octoroon slave mistress complicates the political schemes of a local grandee by parading around his house in the nude.

The ultimate solution - prompted by a stitched, velveteen toy wolf - gives a completely new twist on survival of the fittest.
