"Ridiculously entertaining.... Jaff's woozy supernatural saga is effectively scary and great fun to read."-- New York Times Book Review

This electrifying debut--Book I of the Night Song Trilogy--spins dark suspense and literary fantasy into a mesmerizing story of seduction and survival.

Katherine Emerson was born to fulfill a dark prophecy centuries in the making, but she doesn't know it yet. However, one man does: a killer stalking the women of New York City. People think he's the next Son of Sam, but we know how he thinks and how he feels . . . and discover that he is driven by darker, much more dangerous desires than we can bear to imagine. He takes more than just his victims' lives, and each death brings him closer to the one woman he must possess at any cost.

Amid the escalating hysteria, Katherine is trying to unknot her tangled heart. Two different men have entered her previously uneventful world and turned it upside down. She finds herself involved in a complicated triangle . . . but how well does she really know either of them?

As the body count rises, Katherine is haunted by harrowing visions that force her to question her sanity. With this unforgettable novel--one that combines the literary and the supernatural, fantasy and horror, the past and the present--Katherine's moment of awakening is here. And her story is only just beginning.

Booklist Review: "New York City is terrorized by a serial killer who gains entry into young women's apartments. The reader knows, from the first chapters, written in second person (You pick her up in a bar), that the killer is, to say the least, a skilled pickup artist who finds women not only in bars but also at art exhibits and the New York Public Library. He also writes in extremely purple prose. The point of view here changes from the killer to Katherine, an aspiring writer currently working as an office temp. Katherine, who speaks in the first person, has two new boyfriends, one pretty sketchy, the other very charming. The reader suspects long, long before Katherine does that one of these guys is the serial killer. The excitement (and there's plenty of it) comes from the serial killer's creepy, second-person accounts of his moves and from watching the cat-and-mouse game with Katherine. This branches out into the supernatural toward the end and is projected as the first novel in The Nightsong Trilogy. More than a little derivative and a bit overwrought, but frightening all the same.--Fletcher, Connie Copyright 2010 Booklist"
