-Ridiculously entertaining.... Jaff's woozy supernatural saga is effectively scary and great fun to read.--- New York Times Book ReviewThis electrifying debut--Book I of the Night Song Trilogy--spins dark suspense and literary fantasy into a mesmerizing story of seduction and survival.
Katherine Emerson was born to fulfill a dark prophecy centuries in the making, but she doesn't know it yet. However, one man does: a killer stalking the women of New York City. People think he's the next Son of Sam, but we know how he thinks and how he feels . . . and discover that he is driven by darker, much more dangerous desires than we can bear to imagine. He takes more than just his victims' lives, and each death brings him closer to the one woman he must possess at any cost.
Amid the escalating hysteria, Katherine is trying to unknot her tangled heart. Two different men have entered her previously uneventful world and turned it upside down. She finds herself involved in a complicated triangle . . . but how well does she really know either of them?
As the body count rises, Katherine is haunted by harrowing visions that force her to question her sanity. With this unforgettable novel--one that combines the literary and the supernatural, fantasy and horror, the past and the present--Katherine's moment of awakening is here. And her story is only just beginning.
