Overview

"Don't go to Canada" is a warning given to Dr. Phil Jones and his new wife Zena. The problem is while on their honeymoon, they end up finding themselves on the Canadian side of Niagara Falls.

While there, Phil is attacked and partially eviscerated by an unknown animal. Barely clinging to life, he receives a visit from Alan Strange who tells him of something called a longevity virus: it keeps the infected person healthy, heals wounds rapidly, and extends life indefinitely. An unfortunate side effect is periodic mad rages that cause one to take the lives of those he loves most.

During every full moon, a wolf-like animal attacks women that look similar to Zena. The police are aided in their investigation by a man who has been searching for the people infected with the virus for years. They are closing in on Phil, but can he be caught and stopped before he succeeds in killing his wife or infecting anyone else?

Meet the Author

Stephen LaFevers is a native of Oakland, California, but calls Arkansas Home. His first job was killing flies at a cheese plant. After that he worked as a newspaper editor, school teacher, bus driver, EMT, nurse, nurse practitioner and hypnotherapy instructor. He spent 16 years in Alaska working in emergency medical services and training emergency room personnel. He even spent five years working on the trans-Alaska oil pipeline.
He has been writing since elementary school and has "always" wanted to be a writer. He got his bachelor's degree in journalism because that would allow him to write and get a paycheck, an advantage many writers don’t have. While in Alaska he wrote for the Alaska EMS Instructor News and the EMS Response and numerous computer magazines.
LaFevers writes non-fiction as well as fiction and is co-author of Pre-hospital Care for the EMT-Intermediate, and author of Hypnosis in Healthcare. His fictional Dreams of April Ten was a 2005 Eppie Award Finalist thriller with science fiction overtones. The Last Guardian is a humorous, world-hopping fantasy adventure and Dark Moon, written with Canadian author Beverley Bateman, is a horror story set in New Orleans.
He lives in rural Arkansas with his wife of 40 years and the two cats who own him.

Beverley Bateman
Abuse investigation and her career in public health nursing brought her into contact with challenging families, giving her an up-close view into the lives of families from all social levels and occupations; including drug dealers, hookers and abusers.
This provided her with a wealth of knowledge to enhance her writing skills. She used it to develop realistic characters facing emotional and life-threatening challenges.
When she was younger, she spent a lot of time dreaming up locked room plots and conversations between fictional characters. After years of writing down scraps of plots and promising to write the whole story one day, she finally decided it was time to succumb to her long time desire to write. A challenge with breast cancer gave her the push to purchase her very first computer. Struggling with computer illiteracy, she finally put fingers to the keyboard and wrote her first novel, creating the characters she’d been talking to for years.
When not writing she reads voraciously, and loves to travel, hike and cross country ski in the Okanagan valley of British Columbia, among the vineyards, beaches and mountains.
