Hell On Earth.... In Second Volume Of the Raven Lenore Series! Raven Lenore has a new client, Mordecai Wilsey, a mortician. He wants her to find a corpse that has been stolen from his mortuary. Raven interviews the dead man's relatives with no result. However, when she calls upon the missing corpse's best friend, Peter Morgan, he talks about a vampire named Celia and that he saw the dead man alive and walking about. Raven sets up a surveillance of the mortuary. She sees someone enter it and catches Celia VanGrimm drinking blood drained from a corpse. Celia swears that she had nothing to do with stealing the corpse, but that Peter Morgan is one of her blood donors. She tells Raven that she can be contacted at Graceland Cemetery. In a nightmare, the dead tell Raven that she will be caught in the middle of a maelstrom. Raven, feeling that she is going nowhere with the case, holds a séance with two of her Wiccan friends. But, instead of contacting the spirit of the missing corpse, they contact Raven's doppelganger, Lenore Raven, and inadvertently bring her out hell to walk the earth.
A word from Joe Vadalma to REB readers:
"If you are a fan of H.P. Lovecraft like me, haven't you ever wondered exactly what was in the book entitled The Necronomicon? I know I have. In addition, there were these references to the Cult of Cthulhu, a name impossible to pronounce. Of course, the fun of it is to speculate and wonder, and not know for sure. Of course, as an author of fantasy, science-fiction and dark fantasy, I could not help attempting to imitate the master. What fun it was to write The Laws of Magic which takes some of the elements I used in my other novels, such as witchcraft and the occult and mix in a little Lovecraftian lore. In the Laws of Magic, a detective, called in by a mysterious young woman to solve the case of a missing professor, finds himself transported by the Necronomicon into a fantastic underground other-dimensional world where he menaced by Lovecraftian and other monsters and nightmarish creatures."
