Macmillan’s fall catalogs are out! (I’m still not used to spelling catalog without “-ue” at the end. I’m a thousand years old!) Included among them is the St. Martin’s Griffin fall catalog, featuring the sequel to Dying Is My BusinessDie and Stay Dead, on page 49! Here’s the catalog copy for the novel, which is due out September 30:


In this pulse­pounding sequel to Dying Is My Business, Trent, a man who can’t stay dead or retain his memories, tries to uncover his connection to a deadly Doomsday cult bent on destroying NYC.

A brutal murder in Greenwich village puts Trent and the Five­-Pointed Star on the trail of Erickson Arkwright, the last surviving member of a doomsday cult. Back in the day, the Aeternis Tenebris cult thought the world would end on New Year’s Eve of 2000. When it didn’t, they decided to end it themselves by summoning Nahash­-Dred, a powerful, terrifying demon known as the Destroyer of Worlds. But something went wrong. The demon massacred the cult, leaving Arkwright the sole survivor.

Now, hiding somewhere in New York City with a new identity, Arkwright plans to summon the demon again and finish the job he started over a decade ago. As Trent rushes to locate a long-­lost magical artifact that may be the only way to stop him, the clues begin to mount… Trent’s past and Arkwright’s might be linked somehow. And if they are, it means the truth of who Trent really is may lie buried in the twisted mind of a madman.


Praise for Dying Is My Business:

“Filled with characters that should appeal to urban fantasy readers…and told with a real sense of style and wit, the book should have no trouble amassing an enthusiastic readership.” —Booklist

“Truly an unforgettable suspense novel that’s narrated with humor and a bit of sarcasm—something that is usually only done well by Dean Koontz… Creepy, fun, and immensely entertaining…a definite keeper!” —Suspense Magazine

“…If you like your Urban Fantasy spiced up with elements that have made the adventures of Marvel Comics’ heroes so exciting, powerful, and poignant, pick up Dying Is My Business.” —Criminal Element

NICHOLAS KAUFMANN lives in Brooklyn, New York with his wife and two cats—one of which has special needs, the other of which only pretends to.
