Publisher's Summary

When more than a dozen people die at a retirement home, the official story is carbon monoxide poisoning. Cèsar Hawke is convinced the reason is less mundane and more infernal. But that's his job. As an agent working for the Office of Preternatural Affairs, he's always looking for supernatural answers to deadly questions.

Isobel Stonecrow agrees to help him find the truth. With her powers of necrocognition, she can speak to the dead and get the real story.

But when they return to the crime scene, they find a lot more than cadavers. They find a nightmare that they can't escape - a nightmare from Isobel's past, which even she can't completely remember thanks to the contract that signed away her soul.

Cèsar will have to disinter Isobel's secrets to save her. He'll learn who Isobel used to be, what she's done, and the price she paid... no matter how deadly the knowledge might be.

Another winner fit the series. ..

Action packed, likeable characters. I like that Cesar is less fallible than in previous books and seems to be coming into his own. Having him on the bridge of incompetence has bothered me, so pleased that the author has grown his character.

good addition to series

not really a stand alone book. You should really read the series books 1-3 but this books starts to fill in the gaps on a lot of questions. I thought it was really interesting
