- A husband armed with a sword hacks apart his wife in a Denver grocery store. There are dozens of witnesses, and the crime is captured on the security cameras. To the police, it’s an open-and-shut case.
- To Naomi, the daughter of the couple, it’s evidence of dark magic. She hires her ex-lover, a private investigator named Jonathan Shade to prove her father is innocent.
- Shade specializes in paranormal cases, but he isn’t buying it. Still, he takes the case, hoping to rekindle their relationship. Instead, Shade finds himself mixed up in supernatural intrigue with wizards, magically engineered assassins, and an ancient sorcerer returned to life who’s willing to kill anyone who stands in his way.
Too bad Shade doesn’t have any magic.

“I liked the main character somewhat but mostly liked the ghost the best. There were a couple of instances where characters acted out of character in order to serve the plot. The bad guy seemed to be extremely dim witted and the ending was just too easy. There was also one point where an extremely minor character was unnecessarily vulgar and it annoyed me enough that I kept thinking about it through the rest of the book. It didn’t need to be that way to serve the plot and it didn’t really fit with the rest of the characters.” By April Amberdrake
“This first book in the series (it is followed by Acheron Highway) is an excellent mystery set in a world like ours, but in which magic is real. The magic is woven into daily life in a very logical way, if you accept the premise, and this book makes that easy. Interesting and engaging characters, an interesting storyline. I immediately had to purchase the sequel Acheron Highway as soon as I finished this book.” By Amazon Customer
