This follow-up to Pale Immortal will please fans and new readers. The haunted town of Tuonela is the perfect backdrop for
suspense and shocking revelations. The fast-paced action hooks you from the beginning, and the characters, haunted by past events, propel this heart-pounder to a stunning climax.

The exhumed body of a suspected vampire is put on display, and it's drawing visitors from across the country. When a tourist disappears, the mayor tries to downplay the publicity. Medical examiner Rachel Burton, meanwhile, is anxious to leave town. Pregnant and betrayed by the man she loves, she wants to move on before her baby is born. But she feels compelled to stay when the body of the tourist is discovered and the prime suspect is her lover. (ONYX, Dec., 384 pp., $7.99)
