Speak of the Devil (Raine's Landing #5) by Tony Richards

indie ebook cover


It may look like a perfectly ordinary New England town, a little larger than most. But Raine’s Landing, Massachusetts, holds some very dark secrets. The real witches of Salem fled here just before the Trials of 1692, and the place has been full of magic – the good and the bad kind – ever since. And a curse hangs over the whole population … there are so many people because nobody born here can ever leave.

It’s only early February, and the town should still be in the grip of winter. But the air has turned unseasonably warm and an unexpected thaw has come. And as the snows begin to melt back, bodies start to be discovered, murdered human corpses, each with strange ritual markings carved into their flesh.

At first another serial killer is suspected, but it is not that. The markings are satanic ones. Somebody inside the town is practising black magic of the foulest kind. Demons have been summoned, dark spells cast, doorways opened into deeper realms. And then the Landing’s adepts start to be attacked.

And with his sidekick, Cassie Mallory, unable to help him, ex-cop Ross Devries is facing the toughest and most brutal fight of his entire life. Because this time, he is battling the hordes of Hell.

“Richards is a master at suspending disbelief and combining horror, fantasy and humor in a way that will mesmerize readers from cover to cover” – RT Book Reviews - sf/fantasy section.

“When it comes to fiction for me, characters are first and foremost the most important factor in drawing me into the story, and Mr. Richards’ characters are absolutely wonderful. The action is fast and furious, with plenty of witchcraft, magic, and supernatural beings. His writing is atmospheric and spooky, once you start you will find it hard to put down” – The Monster Librarian.

“The rest of us stand on the sidelines with eyes wide open at his audacity and wonder what he’ll do next” – Peter Tennant, Black Static magazine.

About The Author...

indie author

Tony Richards

      

I've never written in just one genre. That route holds no interest for me. Sure, I started out wanting to be a sci-fi writer, but I soon branched out into ghost and paranormal tales, and as of date have had a good number of stories and novels published in those 3 genres and in crime fiction too, not to mention storytelling that fuses styles (sf/mystery, futuristic horror) and even a handful of PNR tales.
My debut book 'The Harvest Bride' made the shortlist for the HWA Award for Best First Novel, and since then I have seen almost 20 more into print, including the 6 novels - so far - in my Raine's Landing supernatural thriller series. My latest full-length novel is a straightforward crime thriller, 'The Tribe' from CD Publications. More than a hundred of my short stories have appeared in such magazines as Alfred Hitchcock's, Asimov's SF, The Magazine of Fantasy & SF, Weird Tales, Midnight Street, and even Woman.
