Book 2 of the Scarlett Bernard series
As a null, Scarlett Bernard possesses a rare ability to counteract the supernatural by instantly neutralizing spells and magical forces. For years she has used her gift to scrub crime scenes of any magical traces, helping the powerful paranormal communities of Los Angeles stay hidden. But after LAPD detective Jesse Cruz discovered Scarlett’s secret, he made a bargain with her: solve a particularly grisly murder case, and he would stay silent about the city’s unearthly underworld.
Now two dead witches are found a few days before Christmas, and Scarlett is once again strong-armed into assisting the investigation. She soon finds a connection between the murders and her own former mentor, Olivia, a null who mysteriously turned into a vampire and who harbors her own sinister agenda. Now Scarlett must revisit her painful past to find Olivia—unless the blood-drenched present claims her life first.

TRAIL OF DEAD has an interesting plot, characters, and action scenes. It is a refreshing take on the supernatural world. Scarlett Bernard is a cleaner, meaning she cleans up messes left by the supernatural world. She is a NULL, someone who has no magic or can nullify magic when they get within a certain radius of her. When Vampires, werewolves get in her radius they are human again. A Witches magic does not work around her. When her friends and family are now in danger she is on a timeline to find the one who is behind the killing of the Witches. She knows that her old mentor Olivia is somehow behind it all, but finding her is another matter. This is such a great series to read and the characters are very likeable, that I recommend it to everyone who loves Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. I give TRAIL OF DEAD 4/ 5 stars.
