A Bounty of Evil

Author: Markus Matthews Format: Paperback Release Date: 09/08/2019

Bounties are great… …if you’re alive to collect them. Air elemental Zack Stevens’ bounty-hunting business is thriving. He’s taken on four new partners: an introspective Werepanther, a hyper (and distractible) vampire, an inventive Mr. Hyde-type creature, and a shadow-traveling blue alien with a penchant for Full Metal Jacket. They’ve chosen their first case: Someone—or something—is murdering humans across the vast and sparsely populated forests of northern Ontario. The pattern is random, the crime scenes are gruesome, and there is little evidence to lead the team to an answer. As they begin to unravel the mystery, they find themselves facing a foe so cunning and deadly, that they fear they’ll never be ready for it. Will Zack and his team’s first case together be their last? You’ll adore this fast-paced Urban Fantasy series with a superhero twist, because who doesn’t love an against all odds story.
