Shade's FBI partner has shot a kelpie.
And this time, the law may not be on his side...
Agent Andrew Bradford once used deadly force to stop a kelpie from kidnapping a human teenager. And now Shade has gotten a call saying he's done it again. Flesh-eating kelpie dead, human victim saved.
At least, he thinks that's what happened.
He doesn't remember.
His inability to clearly recall the night's events forces Shade to seek answers among the monsters of the Otherworld. She'll have to question scheming leannan sidhe, malicious waterhorses, and take a dangerous step into the world of vampire politics.
Otherworlders are nothing if not opportunistic. And there are plenty of powerful players ready to take advantage of Shade's desperation to do whatever it takes to save her partner...
