book cover for Cusp of Night, a mystery/suspense novel by Mae Clair

Recently settled in Hode’s Hill, Pennsylvania, Maya Sinclair is enthralled by the town’s folklore, especially the legend about a centuries-old monster. A devil-like creature with uncanny abilities responsible for several horrific murders, the Fiend has evolved into the stuff of urban myth. But the past lives again when Maya witnesses an assault during the annual “Fiend Fest.” The victim is developer Leland Hode, patriarch of the town’s most powerful family, and he was attacked by someone dressed like the Fiend.

Compelled to discover who is behind the attack and why, Maya uncovers a shortlist of enemies of the Hode clan. The mystery deepens when she finds the journal of a late nineteenth-century spiritualist who once lived in Maya’s house-a woman whose ghost may still linger.

Known as the Blue Lady of Hode’s Hill due to a genetic condition, Lucinda Glass vanished without a trace and was believed to be one of the Fiend’s tragic victims. The disappearance of a young couple, combined with more sightings of the monster, trigger Maya to join forces with Leland’s son Collin. But the closer she gets to unearthing the truth, the closer she comes to a hidden world of twisted secrets, insanity, and evil that refuses to die . . .

  1. Staci, lovely to see your share of Mae’s book out in June! The cover is wonderfully darkly atmospheric and spooky, the blurb electrifying and frightening … whilst compulsive! This is not my usual kind of book but I am very tempted!! Hope you’re soon feeling better, Mae and good luck with the book.

    1. Thanks so much, Annika. Even though it’s not your normal type of read, I’m delighted to know you’re intrigued. The book is mystery/suspense, but it does have a nice dollop of the supernatural tossed in. I’ll be sharing more about it as it draws closer to the time of release. I’m so excited!!! 🙂
