When Kristi Stewart inherits a property in the old part of Savannah, she knows it comes with stories of hauntings. But she doesn’t believe in ghosts, even while she runs seances for the guests of McLane House Bed-and-Breakfast. Until the inexplicable midnight appearance of one of her infamous ancestors. Terrified, she flees into the night—and right into the arms of Dallas Wicker.
Dallas is trying to uncover the truth about a colleague who died under suspicious circumstances. As strange happenings continue to plague Kristi’s home, it is soon clear that there’s a very living threat in the neighborhood—several people have disappeared without a trace.

THE TRUTH IS SCARIER THAN FICTION
Keri Wolf has joined the crew of The Seekers, a show that searches for paranormal phenomena, as they explore a supposedly haunted old inn on the road between Philadelphia and Harrisburg. The place is famous for its warm welcome—and infamous for being the site of an ax murder rampage in the 1920s. They’ve barely begun when a very real dead body is discovered in the basement. As a nonfiction author, Keri is supposed to be the rational one, but she can’t explain a terrifying apparition that seems to be both a threat and a warning.
Former detective Joe Dunhill knows what she’s going through—the strange gift of being able to see and talk to the dead is a struggle he shares. A new member of the FBI’s Krewe of Hunters, he’s on the team investigating the disturbing death. The town is steeped in old-fashioned superstition, and the deeper Joe and Keri plunge into the dark secrets of the inn, the closer they get to a devastating truth. Will a bloody history be repeated? Or can the spirits of the past reach out to stop a killer?

Dark legends come to life
With the execution of a serial killer known as the Artiste, Cheyenne Donegal thinks a grim part of her past is finally put to rest.

And now she’s back in Louisiana because someone is murdering young women in the same manner as the Artiste.
Krewe of Hunters agent Andre Broussard has deep ties in New Orleans and Cajun country beyond. He knows that more than one monster has stalked the bayou. Has a deadly threat been resurrected, or does someone have a dark inspiration?
With the life of a missing woman on the line, Cheyenne and Andre have to set aside their doubts about each other and work to discover the truth. The case is too close and too personal—but they can’t let it go, especially now that a ruthless killer has turned the tables and is hunting them.
1001 Dark Nights
Blood Night (2019)
(Krewe of Hunters Novella)
Any member of the Krewe of Hunters is accustomed to the strange. And to conversing now and then with the dead.
For Andre Rousseau and Cheyenne Donegal, an encounter with the deceased in a cemetery is certainly nothing new.
But this year, Halloween is taking them across the pond—unofficially.
Their experiences in life haven’t prepared them for what’s to come.
Cheyenne’s distant cousin and dear friend Emily Donegal has called from London. Murder has come to her neighborhood, with bodies just outside Highgate Cemetery, drained of blood.
The last victim was found at Emily’s doorstep, and evidence seems to be arising not just against her fiancé, Eric, but against Emily, too. But Emily isn’t just afraid of the law—many in the great city are beginning to believe that the historic Vampire of Highgate is making himself known, aided and abetted by adherents. Some are even angry and frightened enough to believe they should take matters into their own hands.
Andre and Cheyenne know they’re in for serious trouble when they arrive, and they soon come to realize that the trouble might be deadly not just for Emily and Eric, but for themselves as well.
There’s help to be found in the beautiful and historic old cemetery.
And as All Hallows Eve looms, they’ll be in a race against time, seeking the truth before the infamous vampire has a chance to strike again.

Come spend Halloween with the Krewe of Hunters!
Keri Wolf hadn’t imagined she’d be called out as Halloween neared—she was still in the academy and Joe . . .
Well, Joe was just becoming accustomed to the idea that she had decided to join him as an agent, having the special talent that allowed an agent to become Krewe.
But that Halloween she was going to become Krewe—as a consultant. Because a killer who had struck three times before was threatening to kill again, this time at a Halloween theme park in Louisiana.
There were plenty of able agents with the Krewe, in Joe Dunhill’s mind. Why Keri and him, when he was comparatively new in his position and she wasn’t even out of the academy yet?
But there was a method to the madness. Because Keri had written one of her acclaimed non-fiction books on the killings that had first taken place in Massachusetts. She knew the woman who had called in a warning, supposedly given to her by a Revolutionary War soldier who had made his way from Massachusetts to Louisiana to tell her that it would happen again--just as the killer sent his rhyme for that year.
“Trick or treat, trick or treat
Not looking for anything good to eat
Must may be that I’m up for a trick
Think this time, a nice big pick.”
She was no actress, but Keri was about to play the role of her lifetime as Devilla Dolly, an evil doll in the Murder House, while Joe played Count Rapier.
They had to catch a killer, before a killer caught them, and Halloween was almost upon them.
