– ABOUT HALLOW BE THE HAUNT (A Krewe of Hunters Novella) –
Years ago, Jake Mallory fell in love all over again with Ashley Donegal–while he and the Krewe were investigating a murder that replicated a horrible Civil War death at her family’s Donegal Plantation.
Now, Ashley and Jake are back–planning for their wedding, which will take place the following month at Donegal Plantation, her beautiful old antebellum home.
But Halloween is approaching. And Ashley is haunted by a ghost warning her of deaths about to
come in the city of New Orleans, deaths caused by the same murderer who stole the life of the beautiful ghost haunting
her dreams, night after night.
At first, Jake is afraid that returning home has simply awakened some of the fear of the past . . . .
But as Ashley’s nightmares continue, a body count begins to accrue in the city . . . .
And it’s suddenly a race to stop a killer before Hallow’s Eve comes to a crashing end, with dozens more life at stake, not
to mention heart, soul, and life for Jake and Ashley themselves.
– EXCERPT –
A trio had come to stand near the stage, watching the players.
They weren’t witches.
They were clowns.
Evil clowns. Well, he thought, it was a party filled with musicians, artists, and writers. The attendees were definitely honoring beloved authors such as Anne Rice and Steven King. The clowns might have come right out of a novel.
They were moving toward a man dressed as King Henry VIII. There was something about their movement that caught his attention.
“Stay here,” Jake told Ashley.
He started their way, glad the gun in his holster was his own bureau-issued Glock and not the costume piece that had come with the outfit. His black cape covered the truth of it.
It wasn’t easy getting through the crowd.
Even as he neared them, the clowns had moved. One of them had seen him. And known. Known that he was coming for them.
The clowns turned and started heading out.
They’d be heading straight toward Ashley.
He changed his own pace. And as the clowns seemed to converge on Ashley, he shouted out. “FBI! Get down!”
His words were met with applause and laughter. It was, after all, a costume party.
The clowns were almost upon Ashley. They stopped. And they stared.
Something about her—or the costume she was wearing—had given them pause.
They broke apart—twenty feet from Ashley.
And began to run.
Jake went after them. Logic said he had to go after the closest, but even the closest was blocked by a throng of people.
Ashley was safe—from the clowns at least.
Jake burst out onto the street. “Where’d the clowns go?” he demanded of the bouncer.
“The clowns? Buddy, this place is full of clowns.”
He saw one down the street and ran. This clown stopped, terrified, as Jake reached him and caught him by the arm.
“Hey, hey, what’s wrong?”
The clown was a young man—high school age. He was purely terrified, and seeing his face now and the makeup on it, Jake knew he hadn’t been one of the masked clowns that had drawn his attention inside.
Beaten, he determined to find his way back to Ashley as quickly as possible.
He needed to do three things. Get to Ashley. Find out just who the hell was wearing the Henry VIII costume. And figure out why in hell the clowns would have been after him.
