In Heart of Malice by Lisa Edmonds, for two decades Alice languished in the clutches of a nefarious underworld collective, her arcane talents commandeered to elevate a man known as Moses to an echelon of unmatched power and dread throughout the Eastern seaboard. Desperate to evade his relentless malevolence, she orchestrated the ultimate deception—a meticulously crafted demise—and emerged anew as Alice Worth. Now, veiled in the guise of a private eye with a penchant for the paranormal, Alice Worth treads a razor's edge, seeking redemption for her forebear’s dark legacy while cloaking her own enigma in the shadows. She takes on a case shrouded in mystery. She is not alone in her quest; Malcolm, a specter haunted by a tumultuous past that rivals Alice's story, joins her. Together, they unravel a web of intrigue surrounding a powerful artifact now in the hands of a clandestine figure with a perilous secret.

Lisa Edmonds’ spellbinding novel, Heart of Malice, masterfully weaves a tale of suspense and the supernatural. The prose is exquisite, the character development is rich, and the plot is charged with an electrifying blend of horror and heroism. The in-depth descriptions of curses and spells reveal concealed curses within spells within curses. The writing style is laden with progressively more dangerous hazards as the tale develops. The author has outdone herself, delivering a narrative that captivates and holds the reader in a vice-like grip until the dramatic finale. Heart Of Malice is a testament to the author's storytelling prowess, ensuring that readers will clamor for more of Alice's dark and thrilling adventures.
