Niki Slobodian 03 - Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

The worlds are out of balance. The Creator is missing. And the war between Heaven and Hell has begun.*Niki Slobodian came back, but there were side effects. She is filled with a strange power no one seems to be able to explain. Not even Sam. She is also plagued with strange visions whenever she touches anyone. This does nothing but complicate the fact that she may be the reason for the war raging in the streets of her own city. A war that could mean the end of humanity. Niki has always done whatever she had to for the people she loves, but this time is different. With carnage escalating and the people she cares for in danger, Niki and Sam must work together to save what is left of the world they both love. And with a psychotic archangel trying to assume the post of the Creator, with one slim chance to right the balance, the odds are against them.Nothing is ever easy for a Slobodian. Not even stopping a war that could unmake the world.The Niki Slobodian Series:Between the Devil and the Deep Blue SeaThe Devil Was a GentlemanBefore the Devil Knows You're DeadThe Devil Was an AngelThe Devil's Backbone (2014)About the AuthorJ.L.

But the more Niki uncovers, the more danger she is in. A mysterious organization is out for her blood – literally – and her father's criminal past may not be as self-serving as she thought. There is also the matter of Niki's inscrutable employer Sam and the secret of his identity.

Murray...keeps you captive until the very last page. I didn'twant it to end.""A legitimate page-turner.""I can't wait for the next one."
