Garnet Lacey vowed never to do magic again. Not after that scene with the Vatican assassins in Minneapolis where she called on the Goddess Lilith, who left a swath of destruction so huge Garnet had to leave town. Eight months later, and several hundred miles away, she’s now the manager of Mercury Crossing, Madison, Wisconsin’s premier occult bookstore and herb emporium where the employees are prime examples of witches without a clue.
One day, just as she’s closing the bookstore, in walks trouble, with a capital T for Tall, Tough, and Tasty. She might have blown him off, except for one thing: his aura. He doesn’t have one.
That would make him dead. And a mystery to unravel. Unfortunately, the assassins Garnet has worked so hard to avoid are after her mystery man, and now she finds herself facing her own brutal past.
