Eleri wanted a different kind of case. She should have been careful what she wished for.
When an odd human skeleton in Michigan’s Manistee-Huron National Forest triggers a NightShade investigation, Eleri and Donovan arrive to find it missing. But two other skeletons are a little too easily uncovered—each displays different anomalies that raise alarming questions.
The bones aren’t from the area or probably even the continent. A decades-old abandoned building doesn’t register on satellite images. Files detailing genetic experiments on children are even more disturbing, and most of the children are unaccounted for.
Who were the test subjects and where are the bodies? Eleri and Donovan believe there are others out there who haven’t died yet. But they will, if something isn’t done. Fast.
If the case itself wasn’t enough of a problem, someone is watching. Someone with a particular interest in Donovan’s own skeletal anomalies ...
FBI agents Donovan and Eleri left their last case with a sense of unease.
Unable to close the investigation, they’ve been thrown into their next assignment far too fast. A string of strange arson-based murders are just part of the trouble. Not only is former agent Wade de Gottardi on their team for this one, so are two other NightShade agents: Dana Brantley and Christina Pines. The problem is, Eleri isn't the senior agent, Dana is.
Maybe their boss no longer trusts them, or maybe it’s simply because four people have already died. Either way, Donovan and Eleri are no longer in control of the case as they hunt a serial killer who’s getting bolder with each success.
While Eleri and Donovan are just getting their special skills in hand, Dana and Christina are more at ease with theirs. While Dana’s talents prove useful, Christina’s are frightening . . . and suspicious.
As old cases rear their ugly heads, Eleri and Donovan get drawn into the mysteries of their fellow NightShade agents. Will their new team implode from distrust before they crack the case?
Their unique talents may not be enough to save them from a seemingly unstoppable killer.
When Agent Derek Westerfield first offered her a chance to be an agent with NightShade, Walter Reed didn’t really understand what that meant. She went to Quantico, trained, and even got her first case, before she realized why NightShade was off the books.
Her only ally—and her new partner—is GJ Janson, the know-it-all who wound up hand-cuffed in a hotel room for stealing from the FBI. When GJ learns her own grandfather has been hiding illegal artifacts and more for years, she starts investigating.
When his lab offers up the dead body of a fellow NightShade agent, SAC Westerfield assigns Walter and GJ to the case. Only the killer is coming to them and it’s someone GJ knows.
Brand new agents Walter and GJ are in way over their heads. The case, the other agents, the hunters, and even their own jobs aren’t what they were supposed to be…
Your favorite NightShade agents are back, only Eleri and Donovan are now on their own. This time they aren’t working with the FBI, and the case is as personal as it can get…
FBI Agent Eleri Eames was there the day her sister disappeared at eight years old. However, Eleri is the only one who knows that her sister is already dead and has been for quite some time.
When a skeleton is unearthed in New Orleans, Eleri is convinced it belongs to Emmaline. The age and ancestry of the remains are a match, and there’s something telling Eleri that New Orleans is the place where her sister lived and died.
As Eleri hunts for answers, demons—old and new—begin following her. The Lobomau have been entering the city in ever-increasing numbers, and that might just have something to do with the Dauphine sisters and their long family history of witchcraft and voodoo. Eleri desperately needs her partner Donovan on this case with her, but can he risk his own job to help her?
Eleri’s ancestry may have imbued her with some powers, but compared to her own great-grandmother and the Dauphines, she’s untrained and untested at best. When the bones turn out not to belong to her sister, Eleri has to ask how a case so similar to Emmaline’s even exists…and is it an arrow pointed to her own twisted family history?
This is the sixth installment in the award-winning NightShade Forensic Files. Can be read as a standalone.
Can Eleri and Donovan outsmart a killer who leaves no evidence behind or even a discernable cause of death? How will they track down someone who is more intelligent than both of them together?
Curie, Nebraska was designed as a research haven for the ultra-intelligent. In fact, applicants must pass a rigorous IQ test before they can call the strange town home. Nearly every resident—including several child geniuses—is suspect and no one is safe.
Going undercover as the new neighbors leaves the agents struggling to find even the most basic clues. Eleri and Donovan can barely maintain their false identities against their overly-curious and stunningly intelligent new friends, let alone solve a murder.
Can they figure it out before the next body turns up? Or has the killer already found them…
