An attack at a trade show. A ransacked hotel room. An ominous message on her answering machine. The threats come out of nowhere. And they cannot be ignored. Tyler St. Claire has long tried to disregard her family's "gift" of second sight, but when she learns of her older brother David's mysterious abduction, she begins to understand that she can no longer afford to deny her legacy. Instinctively she knows that there is a connection between her family's uncanny abilities and David's disappearance. Grudgingly accepting the help of Evan Bartlock, an off-duty cop, Tyler uncovers information on a shadowy organization that once employed David. Now Tyler must trust her family, her friends and, most of all, herself to unlock a dark web of conspiracy and murder—and confront an enemy who "sees" as well as she does.

They call it Deadtown: the city's quarantined section for its inhuman and undead residents. Most humans stay far from its borders - but Victory Vaughn, Boston's only professional demon slayer, isn't exactly human... Boston's diverse South End is known for its architecture and great restaurants, not its body count. So when mutilated human corpses begin turning up in the area, the entire city takes notice.

As the bodies pile up, Vicky, her formidable aunt, Mab, and her werewolf boyfriend, Kane investigate, only to find that the creature behind the carnage is after something much more than blood...
