The White Tree

“There's only one white tree brings a white man out here in the middle of the night.”

In Dark Adventure Radio Theatre's first wholly-original episode, Inspector Legrasse (one of the heroes from Lovecraft's tale "The Call of Cthulhu") stumbles onto a case which may be connected to the Cthulhu cult he and his men broke up nearly twenty years before. Once again he leads an investigation which takes him into the foreboding bayous of Louisiana. Will he again be pitted against deranged cultists and the abominations they worship, or has he found something even more evil and insidious?
