I am tremendously pleased to present the cover for Running in the Dark, the sequel to Don’t Bite the Messenger.
Those of you with keen eyes, or those of you who regularly circle Anchorage by air, will notice that the city on the cover is not Anchorage, Alaska. Not even close.
After surviving a vampire turf war in Alaska, vampire courier Sydney Kildare is back behind the wheel and working under an assumed name in Chile. She doesn’t speak the language, doesn’t know the city and—worst of all—has to drive a crappy car.
What she does have is Malcolm Kelly, her sort-of boyfriend and manager of the city’s vampire population. But with Malcolm preoccupied by bloodsucker business—and a gorgeous vampiress from his past—Sydney feels more alone than ever.
But Sydney has more than her love life to worry about. She’s got vamps on her tail, mysterious deliveries that leave death in their wake, and old enemies targeting her to get to Malcolm. Turns out he’s got a history more deadly than she ever imagined, and she’ll have to use every skill in her arsenal to stay alive…
This is the feel-good story of what happens when you think you’ve found Mr. Right only to discover that he’s got baggage. Cruel, angry, resourceful baggage. And I might be kidding about the “feel-good” part. Being an outsider is hard. Being an outsider surrounded by monsters is even harder. Think Syd’s up to the task?
