FBI Agent Lily Yu and her werewolf lover are embroiled in a series of murders, each linked to a form of dangerous "death magic."
Welcome to the strange magic [and] fantastic realms of Eileen Wilks's world of the lupi, where some sins are so dark and unlikely, no one thought to forbid them... FBI agent Lily Yu is in North Carolina with her lover and mate, Rule Turner, Lu Nuncio of the Nokolai werewolf clan. He is there to take custody of his son from the boy's grandmother. It's a purely personal trip until Rule, in wolf form, finds three bodies in a shallow grave. They carry the stench of death magic, which makes the murders a federal crime.

But family matters must take a backseat when the violence escalates, and there's no rhyme or reason for the next strike--by a killer who may not even be of this world...
