Manhattan's nightlife just got weirder. .
It starts as a simple job — but simple jobs, when you're dealing with this magical world, often end up anything but.
As a Retriever, Wren Valere specializes in finding things gone missing — and then bringing them back, no questions asked. Normally her job is stimulating, challenging and only a little bit dangerous. But every once in a while. . .
Case in point — a cornerstone containing a spell is stolen and there's a magical complication. (Isn't there always?) Wren's unique abilities aren't enough to lay this particular case to rest, and so she turns to some friends: a demon )minor), a mage who has lost her mind, and a few others — including Sergei, her business partner (and maybe a bit more?)
Sometimes what a woman has to do to get the job done is enough to give even Wren nightmares. . .
