The cast of my upcoming publication! When I write, these are the faces similar to the ones I imagine in my head.
Aside from exorcising her demons and liberating herself from her narcissistic ex-boyfriend, Anja is a fun-loving old soul who enjoys 30’s music and vintage dresses. She lives with her roommate and previous landlord, Dante, in Geneva. During the day she works at the antique shop Boones and Bishara, loving her argumentative old geezer bosses. Don’t let her loving nature dissuade you from believing in her strength as a spiritual warrior. When it’s time for deliverance, Anja armors up with God and defeats the Devil.

Before he was kidnapped and cursed by kingpin Cobrador, Keitaro was just a manager at the French restaurant the Roquefort. He grew up a landscaper, and has since personally flourished his house with breathtaking gardens and tranquil décor. Keitaro believes in privacy above all else, and has secluded himself to protect others from his secrets. A humble man of simplistic nature, Keitaro would prefer not to be remembered for his Audi A7 and six-digit income. Rather he be remembered for uncrossing paths with a drug lord and liberating himself from the hell-condemning curse of the necromancer.

Prior to getting shot in the forehead and murdered by his best friend, Victor was a drug dealer for Cobrador. If given a second chance at life, Victor would have married and started a family with the only woman he ever loved, Anja Gartner. He would have become a gym teacher for elementary students, had boys nights that didn’t involve bloodshed, and taken care of his mother and sister. Now a ghost living an afterlife of regrets, Victor wanders in a colorless wasteland obeying the order of his new master, Keitaro.

Thirty years of experience on the streets of Geneva toughened Danillo into an elite criminal-catcher. Never a case crossed his desk that went cold, never a suspect he couldn’t break, never evidence he overlooked. As a childless bachelor, Danillo commits his life to justice and prioritizes his loyalty to the badge. A little intuition and a lot of street smarts with a skepticism toward religion has gone a long way for Danillo. But in order to close his current case and protect his only witness, Danillo finds himself taking a leap of faith into the unknown.

Cobrador in Spanish means debt collector, and everybody owes him. Collector of trophies of his crimes and blood signatures in a book of debts, Cobrador poses as a merciless businessman. A powerful kingpin feared for his aloofness to law enforcement and his savage brutality toward his enemies. Running drugs and girls out of his nightclub The 13th Hour is a disguise for the drugs Cobrador pushes on the streets, and even that is a front. Cobrador’s ultimate motive is to destroy all of Geneva by degradation to satisfy the demon possessing him.

A jolly lumberjack-haired realtor with a contagious, gut-busting laugh and an optimistic vision for Anja’s future. After seeing firsthand the abuse Anja suffered by her ex-boyfriend, Dante vowed to support Anja along her path to emotional, mental and spiritual recovery. When she’s down, Dante cheers her up with bear hugs and well-cooked meals. And to prepare her for the ultimate liberation of her life—exorcising the demon of her past—Dante opens up his haunted rental properties for Anja to cleanse as practice. A loving man who wants nothing more than to see his best friend freed from oppression.

Gunner’s name originated from his marksmanship. Any and all guns; he shoots, he kills. As record keeper for Cobrador, Gunner handles all the security camera footage for The 13th Hour and often plays back murders caught on camera as foreplay before he invites prostitutes to his room. A sexual sadist with a sick fetish for pleasure and pain, Gunner fantasizes the torture and taste of Anja from the moment he meets her.

Loyal to Cobrador for personal gain alone, Thiago obeys the chain of command to sustain his access to drugs and power. A beast businessman who runs a disciplined division of Cobrador’s drug cartel and executes an efficient schedule when pushing drugs, Thiago is an asset. Without skills like Gunner’s, or power like the possessed kingpin, however, Thiago is the easiest of Cobrador’s empire to take out. Until he gets promoted.
