It is not only on cold, dark nights that we could use a little literary chill; hot summer evenings are also a great time for the shivers. Night of Demons, the newest book from Tony Richards, again takes us to Raine’s Landing, a small Massachusetts town trapped by a witch’s curse; just the thing for a bit of a buzz. It is not surprising when an insane killer enters the beleaguered town, but when he gets his hands on an occult artifact, all hell breaks loose, almost literally. From official release/information:
Product Description: Centuries ago, the Salem witches founded the village of Raine's Landing, then cloaked it in magic to hide it from sight. Many of their descendants still practice the supernatural arts—and no one who lives here can ever leave.
Now evil has breached its boundaries once again...
A serial killer with a corrupt and twisted soul, Cornelius Hanlon has freely entered Raine's Landing, undeterred by the ancient magical safeguards. And when he chooses the town's oldest adept as his first victim, the maniac inadvertently gains possession of a powerful "gift" more terrible than anything he could have sadistically dreamed.
Ex-town cop Ross Devries and his Harley-riding sometime-partner, Cassandra Mallory, have no supernatural abilities. But they are the last line of defense in this village of secrets and shadows—facing a psychopath who now wields the power to bend the living and the dead to his will.[Read our review of Night of Demons from our September 2009 issue.]
