Still Not Dead Enough
Book 2 of The Dead Among Us
When the dead refuse to rest in peace, perhaps they just need a helping hand.
Destroying the Secundus Caste demon proved to everyone that Paul is not himself a demon, or demon possessed, so he's breathing a little easier. They shouldn't be trying to kill him anymore, right? No such luck! The Russians want him dead on general principal. The Sidhe have no souls, so they're not really alive, and Paul may have added power over them, which they don't like. And the Summer Knight, Anogh, is pulling strings in the background, manipulating everything concerning Paul and Katherine. Paul is basically on parole, and everyone is waiting for one little misplaced step. At least old man McGowan has apprenticed him, and that provides some protection from all the rest of them. But there's a serial killer in the Dallas area, a killer that uses paranormal powers to take the lives of his victims. And Salisteen, a powerful sorceress in the Dallas area, asks Walter McGowan to bring Paul to Dallas, to see if his unique talents might help them stop the monster.
Salisteen is a very powerful colleague of McGowan's, and she suspects a demon is loose in her city, the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Something has murdered and possessed the souls of a string of young girls. At her request, McGowan brings Paul down to see if his special necromantic powers might be of help in hunting down the demon. McGowan also brings Colleen and Katherine. But Salisteen's hidden agenda is for her and another senior practitioner to have a look at Paul, and he finds himself under their microscope.
From Anogh Paul gets hints that Suzanna's death was not an accident. But Anogh's insinuations are vague and frustratingly obtuse, and Paul begins to suspect that Anogh murdered Suzanna, or at least had something to do with her death. It's then that Paul starts to realize the dead, and maybe a few Sidhe, still aren't quite dead enough, and that maybe they just need a little helping hand to get there.
