Carter & Lovecraft

Private investigator Daniel Carter is haunted by the case that ended his career as a homicide detective. He and his partner had cornered a serial killer. When he went to rescue the latest victim, Carter left his partner with the dying suspect in a room covered by indecipherable symbols. He returned in less than five minutes, just in time to watch his partner commit suicide.

Months later, an attorney jolts Carter out of a low-key life of adultery investigations and background checks, delivering the news that Carter has inherited real estate from a complete stranger. Carter discovers the property is actually a bookstore run by Emily Lovecraft, descendant of cosmic horror writer H.P. Lovecraft. There, a series of seemingly supernatural murders turn Carter and Lovecraft into reluctant partners on the hunt for a suspect whose terrifying powers connect to Carter's old murder case.

In Carter & Lovecraft, Jonathan L. Howard (the Brothers Cabal series) crafts a creepy mystery in which the mythos of H.P. Lovecraft is more fact than fiction. Together, Daniel and Emily tmake a formidable team and the solid foundation for a sequel promised by Carter & Lovecraft's twist ending. Supernatural mystery and thrilling horror offer something to love for genre fans of all stripes. --Tobias Mutter, freelance reviewer
