For a minute, everything in Alex McKenna’s life was perfect. He only had one year left of high school, his girlfriend Margaret was the love of his life, and he couldn’t ask for a more supportive family.
His psychic powers were growing and he was learning more and more about his family’s abilities as Strega witches. Things were good.
Until the night it all fell to pieces.
As Margaret lies in the hospital after a serious car accident, her disembodied spirit searches for a way back to the living. Alex is desperate to save her and the victims of his next case: an ominous being haunting the hospital and stealing the souls of infants and the elderly, sending them straight to Hell.
The last bell rang, and Alex made the decision to walk home.
After a brief exchange with Margaret, explaining the peace he
sometimes needed from his solitary walks, he watched her pull
away. Rounding the corner from the school into the neighborhood,
he felt exhilarated. It was his favorite Alex time; a chance
to clear his mind and enjoy the serenity.

Or what? The great Alex McKenna will put me down?
Or when I crossover, I'll make sure I don't give you a moment
of peace. I'll follow you wherever you go for eternity. I don't mind
Victor’s biggest fear was the day Alex would leave the living
world for the celestial. He knew what the boy was capable of in
life and didn’t want to be in his sights after death.
You misunderstand me, Alex. I merely want to see you live a
long, healthy life.
I bet you do. Leave me alone, Victor, and let me enjoy my
As you wish, Mr. McKenna.
Alex smirked. Victor could be threatening. His maniacal
approach to the living was a hindrance, and on occasion, a
dangerous issue. But not today. Today, he’d finish his walk in
Alex McKenna is back, but this case could be his most difficult yet. Someone is stealing souls before they can cross over, and Alex has to figure out how to put a stop to it before he loses the most important thing in his world. Alex McKenna & A Winter’s Night is a spooky emotional roller coaster that you won’t want to put down.
Alex McKenna and his family remain constant throughout the series, however each book has a new story and new characters.
