Graves' End: A Magical Thriller
by Sean Patrick Traver
4.2 out of 5 stars on Amazon
PI Paranormal Mystery

A modern-day witch helps an undead detective solve the mystery of his own resurrection in this magical thriller with a touch of classic LA noir!

Los Angeles PI Dexter Graves was pretty sure his life ended back in 1950, after a mysterious femme fatale shot him through the head. When Graves involuntarily rises from his grave sixty years later, he finds himself drawn to freelance sorceress Lia Flores, who introduces him to an underworld he never could've imagined. Lia sets out to discover the meaning behind Graves' unexpected intrusion into her enchanted life, but neither the witchgirl nor the skeletal detective has any idea they're being set up by an old-school player on the LA scene: mobster/monster Mickey Hardface, also known as Mictlantecuhtli, the ambitious king of the Aztec realm of the dead.

Funny and fast-paced, this genre-bending love letter to the City of Angels blends surreal magical fantasy with the narrative drive of a taut crime story. Epic in scope and rooted in California history, GRAVES' END adds a new chapter to the mythology of the post-Halloween holiday known as el Dia de los Muertos--the Day of the Dead.

Fresco (The Diamond City Trilogy)
by Patti Larsen
4.8 out of 5 stars on Amazon
YA Paranormal Action Adventure

Fall From Grace

“Do you know what happened to you?” Joey’s voice broke a little. Fresco shook his head. The kid nodded, like it was no big surprise. “Yeah, me either. No one seems to. We just have normal lives, you know? Then suddenly you wake up with this thing eating into you,” he swallowed hard, “and that’s it. The rest is Wasteland.”

Seventeen-year-old Fresco Conte is an ordinary All-American kid from an upper middle-class family. He plays football. His girlfriend is a cheerleader. Life is good. Until unexplained things, scary things, start to take him over. Like surviving an accident that should have killed him. Or hearing the thoughts of the people around him whether he wants to or not. When the men in the dark blue coveralls come for him, Fresco is forced into addiction to the blue joy known as Wasteland and set free on the street, with no answers and only his hunger to keep him company.
