SummaryAdd a Summary
After having to kill several werewolves, Charles is beginning to crumble mentally; he's seeing ghosts and starting to give in to his bloodthirsty instincts. So he and Anna are sent to Boston on a special mission -- assist the FBI on a serial-killer case that has lasted decades. The killer initially had a straightforward pattern (Asian teenagers), but began including werewolves and fae. Each one was carved with witch symbols, raped, and finally murdered.
Now the human daughter of a high-ranking fae has been kidnapped, and the FBI/werewolf team has only hours to find her. But the case becomes particularly strange when they discover that a long-dead witch and a bizarre kind of fae may be involved in it. And unless they figure out who the killers are fast, Anna might be their next target.
Charles has been his father's enforcer for centuries, but now that weres are out of the closet, he's suffering from job burnout. Anna argued with Bran on two fronts, and now she and Charles are on their way to Boston to help the feds deal with a serial killer who has targeted werewolves and fae. Justice is eventually served when the killer targets the wrong 1/2 fae and her father(who may be older than Bran) gets involved in the investigation. I hope that Leslie and Goldstein from the FBI return in future books, since they are about stopping human monsters, as opposed to supernatural monsters.
