WICKED IS THE NIGHT
Treacherous vampires return in Mulvany's hot new supernatural thriller. Great pacing keeps the clues to this
heroine's past unfolding while keeping
the fear factor growing.
Former race car driver Patrick "Trick" Granger and his friend Marcello Bellini see Nevada being tossed from a truck. Upon learning that she's in need of money, Trick offers her a job cleaning the cursed old Granger house as he readies it for sale. He's a bit disconcerted when he realizes that Nevada is the spitting image of Blanche Smith, the woman murdered in the Granger house. When people turn up with their throats torn out, Trick, Nevada and Marcello suspect that what's hunting Nevada may not be entirely human. (POCKET STAR, Dec., 357 pp., $6.99)
