Regan Cluny is an investigative
reporter attempting to get the story of her career, possibly
her life. She has been persistent in her attempts to
interview reclusive philanthropist Charles Cunningham Nash.
Tracking him to the archeological dig he is financing, she
is attacked by a biker gang and left for dead. Regan
survives, barely, thanks to Nash.
Charles Cunningham Nash has been around
since the Civil War. Being constantly on the run from his
enemies for over two centuries, has honed his personal
survival skills. However, he can’t seem to shake one
aggressive reporter. After he finds her in the desert near
death, he is struck by how much she reminds him of someone
he lost a long time ago then he realizes she is the reporter
he has been pushing away for months.
Nash’s enemies are perpetuating
violence and making Nash and Regan’s lives interesting. Fate
has thrown them together and is using Nash’s enemies and the
local sheriff as helpers.
Something Wicked was a
story of revenge and finding love when you least expect it.
A clever, fast-paced novel. Ms. Mulvany’s characters were
well-drawn and intelligent. I enjoyed the twist at the end.
A wonderful novel.
