Few villagers are happy when Detective Tohru Takuda returns to his hometown to investigate a string of suspicious disappearances. Even the local police chief tries to shut him out from the case. For behind the conspiracy lurks a monstrous living relic of Japan's pagan history: the Kappa. Protected long ago by a horrible pact with local farmers—and now by coldly calculating corporate interests—the Kappa drains the valley's lifeblood, one villager at a time.
As the body count rises, Takuda must try to end the Drowning God's centuries-long reign of terror, and failure means death…or worse.
James Kendley is the author of The Drowning God and has written and edited professionally for more than thirty years, first as a newspaper reporter and editor, then as a copy editor and translator in Japan (where he taught for eight years), and currently as an educational software content wrangler living in northern Virginia.
Los Angeles, a city of vampires and shifters where violence simmers just below the surface. LAPD Lieutenant Christine Humber has worked for years in the city's most violent district, nicknamed Monster Central. When Chris examines the murder scene of a werewolf, a particularly hard-to-kill shifter, she doesn't find a shred of evidence. A serial killer was just what the city needed to make tensions start to bubble over.
Threatened by the chance of a new urban revolt, the FBI steps in and tries to take the case. Chris reluctantly teams with the overly slim and beautiful Agent Flint to maintain the fragile peace. As the shifter body count grows, Chris and Flint must find answers before war and death spill out onto the streets.
Wolf's Revenge is the second book in the Shifter Legacies, a horror and sci-fi/fantasy series that features page-turning adventure, gripping suspense, sweet romance, and realistic characters. If you liked Way of the Wolf, you'll love diving back into Mark E. Cooper's well-fleshed out world.

It’s been three years since security guard Tohru Takuda and his reluctant band of monster hunters defeated the Kappa of the Naga River. Now, a mysterious artifact is driving innocents in Southern Japan to flay their friends alive, and the grisly murders turn Takuda’s world upside down. Disheartened and impoverished, he struggles to lead his rag-tag team to find the artifact before it poisons the entire nation. Takuda is caught between the police, the bloodthirsty murderers, and forces conspiring to harness the artifact’s horrible powers.
And all the while, he must watch his back, because the most dangerous killer may be lurking among his own men…
