Speak of the Devil

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

Ex-cop Ross Devries and his sidekick Cassie Mallory are up against the True Forces of Evil. It's only early February, and Raine's Landing should still be in the grip of winter. But an unseasonable thaw has come. And as the snows begin to melt back, human bodies are discovered. Murdered corpses with strange ritual markings carved into their flesh.

At first a serial killer is suspected, but it is not that. Somebody inside the town is practicing black magic of the foulest kind. Demons have been summoned, dark spells cast, doorways opened into deep satanic realms. And then the Landing's adepts - magicians descended from the Salem witches - start to be attacked.

And Ross and Cassie find themselves in the most brutal fight of their entire lives. Because this time, they're 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.

"If you love the fantasy genre, like the Dresden Files, you will love this series as well! I hope (it) never ends!" - Cynthia Cleckler.

"Excellent series. Very enjoyable with an interesting twist on the urban fantasy template" - Robert Cottrell.

"I always enjoy the Raine's Landing adventures. I love the characters and setting. The author always brings a great villain or villains. The stories always have a great mystery to solve" - 9 Levels.

"The Raine's Landing novels are page-turners. Not a boring part in the whole series" - Judy, Amazon reviews.
