She doesn’t kill them outright, but creates circumstances that lead to their deaths if they don’t accept redemption. Det. Thane Driscoll has been put on probation, albeit for a righteous shooting of a pedophile. He’s in the Paranormal Investigation Unit and has seen Reya on tapes of several of the crimes. He believes her unlikely story and, together, they set out to find the culprit from Hell behind an attempt to take over Earth. (FOREVER YOURS, Oct., 336 pp., $17.00)
