Overview

When LA’s vampires, witches, and werewolves make a mess, they call Scarlett Bernard to clean it up. Her ability as a null erases all magical traces from anything — or anyone — that comes within ten feet of her, and keeps humans in the dark about the city’s paranormal activity.

One night when she’s called to a grisly crime scene, Scarlett is spied by the all-too-human LAPD cop Jesse Cruz, who strikes up a deal with her: he’ll keep quiet about the supernatural underworld if she helps him crack the case. She agrees, but the city’s chief vampire, Dash, starts to suspect Scarlett is behind the murders and will reveal all she knows of his shadowy empire. Now it’ll take more than Scarlett’s unique abilities to clear her name, keep the underworld underground, and track down the real killer.

Meet the Author

Melissa F. Olson was born and raised in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, and studied film and literature at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles. After graduation, and a brief stint bouncing around the Hollywood studio system, Melissa moved to Madison, Wisconsin, where she eventually acquired a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee, a husband, a mortgage, two kids, and two comically oversized dogs — not at all in that order. Dead Spots is her first novel.

    For a long time I have been looking for THAT book that totally sucks you in and has everything you are looking for. Werewolves, Vampires, Witches. romance and a great sense of humor, it has it ALL! I stumbled on this book at a Madison, WI bookstore featuring local artists and saw that the book was signed by the author. It sounded good so I thought I would give it a chance. My daughter took it from me and read it first and said she loved it and wouldn't stop reading it (even late at night when I caught her reading when she needed to get up early for school!). I then read it and found myself having the same problem of not being able to put it down. Great writing, great story, love the real (not contrived or forced) humor. I found that Scarlett's thinking was much in line with what I would think in similar situations. Very Captivating. Loved it!
