But when an old graffiti tag in a tube station transports Saira to the 19th Century and she comes face-to-face with Jack the Ripper, she realizes she needs help after all.

    For nearly 2,000 years, only one Druid has walked the Earth - Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword have kept him alive as he’s been pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’ apprentice, Granuaile, is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do.

    Her mother called it a gift. But for Caitlyn O’Connell, the voices in her head are a curse, dooming her career, her marriage, and her sobriety. Now the former cop scrapes by as a private investigator, counting down the minutes until happy hour. But when her sexy former partner (and estranged ex-husband) appeals to her for help with a bizarre murder case, Cait can’t say no - to the crime or the man.

    The last thing Detective Sam Pierce wants is to revisit the past. But the very secret that doomed his marriage to Cait may be the key to cracking this case.
