Night of Demons: The 2nd Raine's Landing Novel (The Raine's Landing Supernatural Series)
Centuries ago, the Salem witches founded the village of Raine's Landing, then cloaked it in magic to hide it from sight. Many of their descendants still practice the supernatural arts - and no one who lives here can ever leave.
Now evil has breached its boundaries once again ...
A serial killer with a corrupt and twisted soul, Cornelius Hanlon has freely entered Raine's Landing, undeterred by the ancient magical safeguards. And when he chooses the town's oldest adept as his first victim, the maniac gains possession of a powerful "gift" more terrible than anything he could have sadistically dreamed.
Ex-town cop Ross Devries and his Harley-riding partner, Cassandra Mallory, have no supernatural abilities. But they are the last line of defense in this village of secrets and shadows - facing a psychopath who now wields the power to bend the living and the dead to his will.
