Deadly Violet

(The fourth book in the Raine's Landing series)
A novel by

Ex-cop Ross Devries and his sidekick Cassie Mallory are watching their world literally fall apart. Because a psychic girl back in the town's Victorian past has gotten hold of a magic jewel that massively expands her powers - she has reached out with her mind through time itself, making contact with Raine's Landing in the present day. The problem is, she's warped the fabric of reality by doing that. Rows of houses begin vanishing with their owners still inside. Strange, dangerous creatures start to roam the streets.

And if Ross and Cass are going to stop their hometown disappearing altogether, then they're going to need an awful lot of help.

You see, there were real Salem witches back in 1692. They foresaw the coming of the Witchcraft Trials and fled from that place to Raine's Landing, Mass. And the town has been full of strange magic ever since ... the good kind and the bad. Because a dark, enduring curse has been cast. Nobody who was born here can ever leave.
