Raine’s Landing is facing its worst peril yet, monstrous flying creatures in the service of an evil older than the Universe itself. They have an unpleasant way of getting people on their side. Their powers keep on growing until little can withstand them. Most of the major adepts succumb … there are only two left to defend the place.
And the town’s chief troubleshooter, ex-cop Ross Devries, has an enormous challenge on his hands. He needs to get his former sidekick, Cassie, back into the fight. And if they are to have any slightest chance of winning through, they’re going to have to make some very strange new friends.

About the Author
I'm the author of more than a dozen novels in the supernatural and detective genres, and often combine the two. My latest 2 books, the Helsinki-based chiller 'Under the Ice' and my dark fantasy epic 'Hot Blood' are currently out from Samhain Publishing. My shorter work has appeared in Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, Asimov's SF, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Weird Tales and numerous top anthologies ... enough of it to fill up seven short story collections, many of them available from Dark Regions/Dark Renaissance Press. Widely traveled, I frequently use places I have visited in my work, with fiction set all over North and South America, through the whole of Europe, in North and southern Africa and in the Far East. My self-published e-books include a huge collection of my best short horror fiction, and the latest in my series of fantasy thrillers set in the fictional town of Raine's Landing, Massachusetts. My debut novel 'The Harvest Bride' (Tor Books) was a finalist for the Bram Stoker Award for Best First Novel, and in 2008 my collection 'Going Back' was shortlisted for the British Fantasy Award.
