The Polar Magic Series
Polar Night (Polar Magic #1)
Maria Treibel is missing. Detective Danny Fitzpatrick is beaten. And evil lurks in the shadows.
Haunted by his past, Danny drowns his sorrows as often as he can, but when Maria Treibel vanishes without a trace, Danny is assigned the case. With no leads, and the department winding down their search, Danny knows he is the only one that can find her. Instead of your typical missing-persons case, Danny's witnesses seem to point to something a bit more sinister. Unbelievably so.
Aleksei Nechayev owns the inn at Cold Foot, an old mining town in Alaska. His classic Russian features, not unlike the image of Czar Nicholas II, seem frozen in time. When Danny's investigation leads him to Aleksei with a warrant, he isn't worried. He's had centuries of practice dealing with curious men of the law.
Time for Maria is running out, without rescue, the life will literally be sucked out of her.
Polar Day (Polar Magic #2)
The midnight sun bakes Fairbanks, Alaska as residents gather for the annual summer solstice baseball game. Amidst the revelry and raucous shouts of “Play ball,” a spark alights and a jogger bursts into flames. Detective Danny Fitzpatrick, still reeling from his near death at the hands of vampire Aleksei Nechayev, watches in horror as the man burns alive.
Someone is burning Fairbanks and its residents and leaving nothing but smoldering embers behind. As the city sweats under a record-breaking heatwave and unexplained fires claim more victims, Danny and his colleagues struggle to find an arsonist who can conjure fire out of thin air.
To Danny’s horror, the only one who may be able to help him stop the arsonist is his nemesis Nechayev. Will the vampire help in the hunt for a witch?
Polar Curse (Polar Magic #3)
Coming Fall, 2022 from Ink Smith Publishing!
It started in Fairbanks, and it will end in Fairbanks.
Detective Danny Fitzpatrick has dueled with vampires and witches, but something is haunting Fairbanks—and it isn't just the recent disappearance of a hiker. Eerie voices, accidental deaths and arson keep dragging Danny back to Kennecott cemetery. Back to Annabelle Trescot's grave. The only theory that makes any sense: a deadly ghost.
With bodies piling up, Danny is forced to seek out Aleksei Nechayev, the murderous vampire, for help. But history has a way of coming back to haunt us, even when the ghosts get what they want.
