Image of Heart of Stone (The Negotiator Trilogy, Book 1)

This is the first book in a fascinating new series and, as usual, Murphy delivers interesting worldbuilding and magical systems, believable and sympathetic characters and a compelling story told at a breakneck pace. New and old fans of Murphy's work will
find much to love about Heart of Stone.

Lawyer Margrit Knight has a bad habit of jogging through Central Park past sundown, but even in her wildest dreams she never thought she'd find a shadow world filled with magical beings -- along with a number of dead women and a mysterious and handsome stranger with blood on his hands.

Pulled into a conflict between parties she never knew existed, Margrit gets to know the gargoyle Alban and comes to believe that he is truly innocent of the crimes of which he's been accused. She agrees to help him find the true killer; what and who she discovers will change her life forever. (Luna, Nov., 448 pp., $14.95)
