The fourth book in the New York Times best-selling urban fantasy-thriller series starring sexy bounty hunter and witch Rachel Morgan.
There's no rest for the wicked, even when the taint on your soul isn't your fault. It would be wise for witch and bounty hunter Rachel Morgan to keep a low profile right now. Her new reputation for the dark arts has piqued the interest of Cincinnati's night-prowlers, who despise her and long to bring an end to her interference, one way or another.
Nevertheless, Rachel must risk exposure. Her ex-boyfriend, Nick, has stolen a priceless Were artefact, and, as tempting as it may be to let the Weres take him apart, Rachel feels obliged to attempt a rescue. But other sinister forces also covet the relic Nick has hidden. Some desire it so badly they will rip the city – and everyone in it – apart to wield its frightening power.

"Action packed … chick-lit with a supernatural twist." (The Times)
"A spellbinding blend of sharp wit and vivid imagination. A wonderfully fun romp through the supernatural world." (Kelly Armstrong)
"Discovering a new series like this is like finding buried treasure." (Diana Gabaldon)
I've read a few of the books in this series and enjoyed them despite Rachel's air head nature. This one just erred me virtually from start to finish. When Rachel wasn't too busy find everything in pants attractive, she was trying her hardest to flaunt herself in a skin tight black running suit, including bending over at the waist to put her hands on the ground in front of 3 packs of weres. When she wasn't doing that she and her partners were bullying nick and were looking for excuses to turn on him. I found this story frustrating, boring, sometimes petty and at others immature. I'll be seeing about a refund on this one although I suppose it gives som backstory for future books.
