Overview

In this electrifying sequel to the crowd-pleasing thriller Angel Killer, magician-turned-FBI agent Jessica Blackwood must once again draw on her past to go up against a brutal murderer desperate for revenge at any price.

After playing a pivotal role in the capture of the Warlock, a seemingly supernatural serial killer--and saving the FBI's reputation in the process--agent Jessica Blackwood can no longer ignore the world she left behind. Formerly a prodigy in a family dynasty of illusionists, her talent and experience endow her with a unique understanding of the power and potential of deception, as well as a knack for knowing when things are not always as they appear to be.

When a church congregation vanishes under mysterious circumstances in rural Appalachia, the bizarre trail of carnage indicates the Devil's hand at work. But Satan can't be the suspect, so FBI consultant Dr. Ailes and Jessica's boss on the Warlock case, Agent Knoll, turn to the ace up their sleeve: Jessica. She's convinced that an old cassette tape holds the key to the mystery, and unraveling the recorded events reveals a troubling act with far-reaching implications. The evil at work is human, and Jessica must follow the trail from West Virginia to Mexico, Miami, and even the hallowed halls of the Vatican.

Can she stop a cold-blooded killer obsessed by a mortal sin--or will she become the next target in a twisted, diabolical game of hunter and prey...?

In Mayne’s exciting second Jessica Blackwood novel (after 2014’s Angel Killer), the cunning FBI special agent applies her magician training to investigating a bizarre explosion, which tears apart a church in Hawkton, W.Va., and leaves all but one of the congregation upside-down and naked in surrounding trees. Missing is Sheriff Carson Jessup. An early hint points to the man who is now the pope. The FBI uncovers clues that suggest a supernatural link, in particular to the demon Azazel. Jessica, who becomes the target of the dangerous gang X-20, survives more than one attempt to kill her as she tries to figure out the motive behind the Hawkton attack. The death of a young boy, a plot to kill the pope, and the powerful reach of a vengeful drug cartel leader test Jessica’s abilities in a fast-moving thriller in which illusions are weapons for both good and evil. Agent: Erica Spellman-Silverman, Trident Media Group. (July)
