Book Cover: Deadbeats

Cops have a name for dangerous wizards.

Warlock.

Warlocks use magic to kill. To kidnap. To inflict the kind of bodily harm that would drive a mere mortal insane.

Ever since she joined the police department, Willie wanted to work undercover. Pit herself against criminals who abuse women and children for their own personal gain. But Willie never dreamed her first undercover assignment would have her facing off against the city’s most powerful warlock. A master of dark magic that no mere mortal like Willie could ever hope to defeat.

And she doesn’t even have her gun.

About the Author

Award-winning author Annie Reed describes herself as a desert rat who longs to live by the ocean. Since she hasn’t yet convinced her family to relocate to a nice chunk of beachfront property, she’s done the next best thing—written a series of stories set in a contemporary Pacific Northwest city where magic and reality go hand in hand.

Private investigators Diz and Dee populate Annie’s more lighthearted stories, while denizens of a much rougher neighborhood lurk in her Tales From the Shadows.

A talented and versatile writer whose fantasy, science fiction, and mystery stories have sold to a wide variety of publications, including five of the first seven volumes of Fiction River’s inaugural year.
