The Conjurer
By Doug Christi
Christopher Mathews Publishing, June 2012
ISBN: 978-0985243142
Trade Paperback $12.95 Ebook $4.99

“Marshal Cameron Piquet is the Justice Department’s best. To stop a serial killer nicknamed The Exterminator, he is partnered with long-time rival, FBI Special Agent Kevin Riddick. The case becomes a race against time when Piquet discovers that the killer is the Angel of Death summoned by a powerful conjurer who wants him dead. Enlisting the aid of Dr. Marion Fullbright, an abrasive forensic genius and Sarah Gilliard, a beautiful psychic, Piquet must come to terms with his troubled past and break the fiendish spell before the Exterminator sends him to his grave.

This is the first in the new Marshal Cameron Piquet series, and will appeal to readers aged 17 and older interested in magic, witchcraft, psychic phenomenon and romance. There is enough magic for most fantasy readers, enough action to satisfy fans of Harlan Coben or Elmore Leonard, a sufficient body count to attract horror fans, and enough realism to suspend the doubt of anyone with an average measure of curiosity and imagination.”

Pat - Thanks for sharing these new releases with us. They all look full of action and suspense, and what I find interesting is that they all have slightly different perspectives on creating that action.
