Matthew Corbett Series:

The Matthew Corbett series is set in the 18th century in the United States. The forces of good and evil are at war in the colonial America and every citizen suspects that witchcraft is behind the tragedies that plague their towns and surrounding areas. Matthew Corbett starts his work as a young clerk/ assistant to the travelling Judge Issac Woodward and rapidly makes the journey to manhood, trusting his own instincts for uncovering the truth and persisting even in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges. His employers sent him to various places to confront the evil and uncover the truth. Matthew Corbett is a professional problem solver who confronts evil to save the innocent.

Written by Robert McCammon, who'd been writing stories since the late 1970s and took nearly ten years off before starting the Matthew Corbett series in 2002. A lifelong resident of Alabama, McCammon has focused much of his work on the mystery genre and is a very prominent writer in the field.

Trevor Lawson Series:

Robert McCammon introduces the tortured and instantly unforgettable vampire adventurer Trevor Lawson as he searches for his maker, LaRouge, in hope of becoming human once more.

Weaving a tale about the terrors of the Dark Society, featuring the gothic sensibilities of old New Orleans, and the unforgiving violence of the untamed frontier of 1886.

For Lawson, the horrors that stalked the Civil War battlefield at Shiloh were more than just those of war. After being forcibly given the gift of undeath by the mysterious vampire queen LaRouge, Lawson chose to cling to what remained of his humanity and fought his way free of the Dark Society’s clutches.


In the decades since, he has roamed late nineteenth century America, doing what good he can as he travels by night, combating evils mundane and supernatural, and always seeking the key to regaining a mortal life.

In I Travel by Night, that key lies with his maker, and now Lawson hopes to find LaRouge at the heart of a Louisiana swamp with the aid of a haunted priest and an unexpected ally. In the tornado-wracked ghost town of Nocturne, Lawson must face down monstrous enemies, the rising sun, and his own nature.

Robert McCammon:

Speaks the Nightbird:

It’s 1699 in the coastal settlement of Fount Royal in the Carolinas when Rachel Howarth is sentenced to be hanged as a witch. She’s been accused of murder, deviltry, and blasphemous sexual congress, and the beleaguered, God-fearing colonial village wants her dead. But Matthew Corbett, young clerk to the traveling magistrate summoned to Fount Royal to weigh the accusations, soon finds himself persuaded in favor of the beguiling young widow.


Struck first by her beauty, Matthew believes Rachel to be too dignified, courageous, and intelligent for such obscene charges. The testimony against her is fanatical and unreliable. Clues to the crimes seem too convenient and contrived. A number of her accusers appear to gain by her execution. And, if Rachel is a witch, why hasn’t she used her powers to fly away from the gaol on the wings of a nightbird?

God and Satan are indeed at war.


Something really is happening in the newly established settlement—of that Corbett is certain. As his investigation draws him into the darkness of a town gone mad, and deeper into its many secrets, Corbett realizes that time is running out for him, for Rachel, and for the hope that good could possibly win out over evil in Fount Royal.
