Ollie Krueger's days as a punk kid practicing street magic are mostly behind her. Now she's a butcher at Carnage, a high-end restaurant offering deconstructed takes on meat, and on the busiest nights of the week she and her partner, Guychardson, race to see who can produce more finished cuts. Ollie's the better butcher, but somehow Guychardson almost always wins. And Ollie thinks maybe it's because the mysterious knife he uses is magic.
Before she knows it, Ollie's interest in the knife has thrown her square in the path of a dangerous ex-marine called Pig and his hired psychic, Maja, who are on the hunt for the knife, too - who want it so badly, in fact, that they might kill for it.
Now magic is back in Ollie's life, and she's being chased through New York City, with the fabric of space-time tattering around her and weird interdimensional worms squirming their way into her kitchen. And before all this is over, she's going to need to face up to the possible consequences of some bad decisions, to look at the uncomfortable truths that she stuffed away long ago, deep down inside....
