2019 KIller Nashville Silver Falchion Award Finalist.

Evil Magician, Reznik the Magnificent, returns...

Retired psychologist and Atlanta transplant to the North Carolina Mountains, Dr. Promise McNeal, hasn't had a good night's sleep since Reznik whispered he'd be waiting for her and then disappeared. Now, months after Reznik vanished, security cameras in the shadowy, underground corridors of Asheville's two-hundred-and-fifty-room Biltmore Mansion catch Reznik on video. He's back and he's on the move. But what, or who, is he searching for?

Promise's husband, Sheriff Daniel Allen, is on the hunt to find Reznik but he has troubles of his own. A man who Promise's neighbor, the eccentric Fletcher Enloe, says "needed killing" is murdered. Arson is suspected when wildfires break out on the mountain slopes. And, as if that weren't enough to make Daniel wish he'd thought twice about running for sheriff, an unidentified body is discovered in a shallow grave on Forest Service land, and Daniel is certain the Forest Ranger is lying when he insists he knows nothing about the dead man.

While Promise keeps a lookout for Reznik, and helps Daniel solve the mystery of who buried the old man in a shallow grave, Reznik plays puppet master to a strange girl sent to steal a secret Promise doesn't know she possesses. Then, as the mountain winter brings snow and freezing temperatures, Promise is caught between the girl, the magician's evil obsession, and the restless spirits of Fire Mountain as they awake to protect what's theirs.
