Blurb: Born on the wrong side of town and schooled in the wrong field of magic, private eye Jonah Lane is a little rough around the edges, but he always gets the job done. With a dash of blood magic and a soul-reaping dagger, he trawls the dark corners of Haverton, Ohio in search of the missing and the lost to bring solace to his paying clients.

When a young woman named Penny kicks down the door of his office and demands that Jonah investigate a fatal fire that the police deemed an accident, Jonah is initially skeptical of her claims about the fire’s true nature. But a paying client is a paying client. So Jonah agrees to take the case.

To his dismay, Jonah quickly discovers that more than one mysterious blaze has taken a life in recent months. And as he begins to dig into a web of deadly secrets and lies in the city’s poorest neighborhood, someone begins to throw up increasingly dangerous obstacles to stop him from discovering the truth.

But Jonah Lane has never failed to solve a case, and he brushes off threats like lint on his trusty trench coat. So no matter what, he will not stop searching for the answers. Even if his stubbornness gets him killed…again.

The Likeness of the Night is the first novel in the Jonah Lane paranormal mystery series.
