Working at a sex & toy shop like Chinaman Joe's Good Luck Parlor keeps Cassie in smokes and off the streets. It isn't glamorous. But it's a life.
Then again, Cassie is just normal - not one of the blessed. No paranormal abilities, no telepathy, no pre-cognition. Normal.
But when someone kills Cassie's best friend in the alley behind the store, the police start looking at her hard, particularly when the post-cog on the case swears she's involved, somehow.
Then someone strangles a prostitute right there in the store.
Cassie knows the cops are wrong about everything. She didn't do it, and the deaths aren't about drugs.
But to prove them wrong Cassie has to stop the Norse gods she didn't know were real and prevent Ragnarok.
Her life will never be the same.
