Overview

SOME EVIL JUST WON’T STAY DEAD

How do you kill someone who has already been dead for better than 150 years? Weird question, I know, but I’m serious, believe me.

My name is Rowan Gant, and I’m the Unofficial Witch of the Saint Louis Major Case Squad. I was branded with that title for two reasons: I’m a Witch, and I consult for the police. You see, I’m not a normal Witch. I’m afflicted with a terrible curse—I can hear the voices of the dead. The loudest are always those of murder victims, hence the gig with the cops. Honestly, it has brought me nothing but trouble—like the need to kill someone who is already dead, for instance.

Some months back I was involved in an investigation that culminated in the capture of a sadistic serial killer who called herself Mistress Miranda. The thing is, the woman who is now behind bars is Annalise Devereaux. She’s not innocent in this, trust me, but Miranda herself is the real problem. Long story short—Miranda is the spirit of a long dead, 19th century serial killer, and spirits aren’t deterred by prison bars and razor wire. Sounds crazy, I know, but it gets even weirder. It turns out that Annalise is a half-sister my wife never even knew she had until this mess hit the fan and the sins of the father were laid bare.

However, don’t let the soap opera of adultery and illegitimate siblings fool you. This is a real horror story; just ask the victims… Better yet, just ask me. You see, now that Miranda’s corporeal host is behind bars, she is looking for a new body to use, and she’s keeping it in the family—by that, I mean she has set her sights on my wife, Felicity, and I don’t intend to let that happen.

Unfortunately, how this drama plays out may not be up to me at all…

    superb magical horror mystery

    Annalise Deveraux was the previously unknown half sister of witch Felicity O'Brien. Unlike her half-sibling, Annalise practiced voodoo using blood magic and invited the spirit of Miranda into her body. Miranda died over a century and a half ago; she was a sexual sadist who relished pain and murder. Annalise, at least what is still her as Miranda owns the shared body, are in a mental institution.

    Miranda plots to leave the body shell of Annalise and enter the body of Felicity. The only reason she fails so far to enter her new body is Rowan Grant prevents her. Like his wife Felicity, Rowan is also a practicing witch; but unlike her he can also communicate with the dead. He visits Annalise in order to confront Miranda, but she makes him lose control, which causes Felicity to have unnatural desires from her corporal usurper. Miranda jumps out of Annalise's body and cuts off Rowan's communication with the dead. She kills enough people to insure she has enough power to retake Felicity's body as she has done before (see All Acts of Pleasure). She succeeds, but family friends repel her leaving Felicity in a child like state and Rowan willing to do anything to get her soul back into her body.

    Rowan Grant stars in another strong St. Louis urban fantasy as the evil Miranda returns to cause havoc (see the Miranda trilogy). Rowan has worked the ethereal plane before, but when it comes to the vicious Miranda, he knows it is personal as he wants her out of his wife's body and their lives forever. Character driven, the lead couple shares a common belief to do what they believe is right even when it goes against the norm. M.R. Sellars has written another superb magical horror mystery thriller as one of the best villainesses of the last decade co-stars with Rowan and Felicity in a triangle from hell.
