Night Fall

T-FLAC Psi Unit: Night Trilogy, Book 1
T-FLAC/psi operative Simon Blackthorne goes to Africa to continue the global war against paranormal terror--never expecting to clash swords with strong-willed Kess Goodall.

Kess struggles in her own desperate battle to unravel a deadly secret that has killed millions in the tiny country of Mallaruza. But Simon proves to be the ultimate distraction: his very presence takes her body to the edge of a pleasure-filled abyss, his touch superbly rapturous. Now, against a backdrop of staggering beauty and horrific violence, with danger at every turn and libidos in overdrive, a spirited woman and an indomitable wizard face a malevolent force more frightening than both can imagine.

With foes strong and numerous, Kess and Simon must forge a bond strong enough to eliminate a sadistic enemy before Mallaruza is lost to terrorist control and the world forever changed.

From the Paperback edition.

Excerpts-
  • Chapter One Mallaruza Central West Africa

    "Morning," Kess Goodall said absently as she and Simon Blackthorne passed in an upstairs hallway of the city offices of Mallaruza's state capitol building. Tear and sweat tracks painted pale lines through the dirt on her sunburned cheeks, and her gray eyes were shadowed. Something was up. She made no effort to hide it; in fact Simon observed that despite the greeting, she was barely aware of those she passed, and probably wasn't even seeing individuals as she speed walked by.

    Intrigued, he turned to watch her retreat.

    Cute ass.

    She was publicist for Abioyne Bongani, Simon's old college friend and current president of Mallaruza. Goodall had held up well in the past two months, considering that she'd been banished to this tiny country in midwestern Africa. No one wanted to hire her back in Atlanta, Georgia, where she was from. The PR community there had closed ranks on her. Instead of looking for a job anywhere else in the United States, she'd opted for a time-out here in Africa.

    She hadn't chosen easy, that was for sure.

    Escalating skirmishes on the border between Mal- laruza and Huren, an outbreak of some deadly virus, and the upcoming elections were all keeping her out of trouble and on her toes.

    As far as Simon could tell, she'd done a pretty decent job of promoting the good Abi was doing for his country. Since Abi was becoming suspiciously more saintlike as the day of his reelection approached, her duties were of the cheerleader variety--exactly what the untidy, yet vivacious, Ms. Goodall excelled at.

    She wasn't going to hinder Simon's investigation in any way. Intel divulged that she'd been fired from the PR company she'd worked for. Being phenomenal at her job had saved her cute ass every time she'd pulled some insanely over-the-top stunt. Like attacking one of the other members of the staff, or throwing a vase full of flowers at a client.

    She was impulsive, volatile, and unpredictable.

    Simon had a wary respect for unpredictable.

    His work as a T-FLAC/psi operative made unpredictable the norm. But an unpredictable civilian, right in the middle of what had the potential to be an extremely volatile conflict between two small countries, was not good.

    His job here was simple. As president, Abi Bongani had called him in because he suspected another wizard might be manipulating the skirmishes on his border with Huren. The Hureni were a violent people, but they usually kept their fighting internal. Recently they'd started sending sorties deeper into Mallaruza.

    Pillage, murder, rape, and general mischief. The Hureni were full-service bad neighbors, and bad for Abi's campaign.

    As a friend, Abi didn't want Simon doing any more than tracking down the wizard responsible. He had his own ways of finding out why.

    Simon was happy to have an all-expenses-paid vacation in Africa. The ocean was nearby and he was between ops. Why not? It had been years since he and Abi had tossed back a few beers and caught up on college memories.

    Hmm. There'd been a redhead then, too. Or had it been a blonde? Since Goodall was reportedly a magnet for trouble, and wanting to know what the tears meant, he decided to follow her, undetected, into Abi's office. Loose cannons tended to go off in the worst possible situations.

    The wide hall was filled with people rushing about. Simon strolled into a nearby public rest- room, letting the door swing shut behind him. He checked the stalls, making sure the men's room was deserted.

    He shimmered, invisible, back into Abi's opulent office to hear what she had to say. Of course Abi, being a half-wizard, sensed that he...
