J.L. Murray’s The Devil Is a Gentleman is the second book in the Niki Slobodian series. It is available now through Amazon.
Niki Slobodian thought she’d seen it all. She’s faced down all-powerful demons, sent escaped Hellions back where they came from, and, maybe most significantly, confronted her own notorious father, Alexei “Sasha” Slobodian. But when Congressman Frank Bradley, the poster boy for New Government, and the orchestrator of the loathed Registry knocks on her door, she becomes entangled in a new set of dangers. A mysterious organization is literally out for her blood, the unusual new police commissioner wants to involve Niki in her schemes, and new information makes Niki realize Sasha isn’t nearly as self-serving as she once thought. With her partner Bobby Gage, Niki finds out how little she really knows about the Slobodian family, and how alike she and her father really are.
Underneath it all is her inscrutable employer, Sam, who has his own plans for Niki’s future. A war between Heaven and Hell is brewing, and Sam seems to be right in the middle. He also seems to be a little too interested in Niki. And the ghosts are getting worse. Continue reading “J.L. Murray Announces New Release”

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea
Niki Slobodian sees things — things that aren’t supposed to be there. Labeled an Abnormal by New Government, her name is tacked onto the Registry, which seems to be getting longer these days. Now she can’t work or she’ll end up the same place as her father: in prison. But with no money coming in, Niki’s getting desperate.
So when a mysterious client offers to get her off the Registry in exchange for taking his case, Niki jumps at the chance. All she has to do is round up a homicidal Dark that’s escaped from Hell and is cruising around the city in borrowed bodies. The murders are piling up, with Niki’s notorious father somehow involved, and Niki’s running out of time. And it seems the Dark isn’t the only thing that escaped…
