The Black Rose

Four Elements Trilogy #2

Max is back! Book #2 in the "Four Elements" series of supernatural mysteries, by #1 bestselling authors J.R. Rain and Matthew S. Cox!

Max Long enjoyed a pleasant, if secluded, life in the small mountain town of Shadow Pines. Things had been quiet—until he discovered the elements obeyed him.

As if learning vampires truly existed didn’t shock him to his core already, Max grapples with the reality that he’s been given real magic. He has the power of all four elements at his fingertips.

They say every good private eye story starts with a crying girl walking through the door. Crystal hadn’t been the first upset woman to ask him for help, not in a town with a murder rate far worse than any big city. Unfortunately, he’d made the biggest mistake of all… falling in love. As if becoming romantically entangled with a client didn’t complicate matters enough, he’d fallen for a half-succubus.

When a group of senior citizens on a day trip go missing, Max suspects the local vampires have stopped caring about subtlety. People who rock the boat in Shadow Pines tend to disappear painfully, but if he doesn’t start making waves soon, his beloved home town will become nothing more than a graveyard.
