Editorial Reviews

Blurb - Eve Paludan
J.R. Rain does it again in a league of his own as he delivers a fast-paced novella starring a brand-new private detective who specializes in finding missing children. A distraught "grandma" wants Spinoza to find her missing granddaughter, Veronica, who just happens to be a vampire slayer. This time, Rain's private eye goes north to San Francisco and the setting is perfect for this engaging tale. From a goth bar decorated with coffins to the streets of San Francisco, it's a race against time.
