The Spanish Caribbean Gothic: Help!

Hello all, 

Does anyone out there know of a good Spanish or French gothic novel that takes place in the Caribbean? Of particular interest would be a Spanish gothic novel that features Santeria practices. Any help would be most appreciated!! My dissertation will hopefully explore a comparative literary project of the British anxiety of Obeah practices and the Spanish anxiety of Santeria (if in fact they were nervous about the religious hybridization of Catholicism and African tribal traditions). 

Thank you!
