Mary Chase found a purpose in life as an agent for the Society for the Suppression of Supernaturals. Her skills are tested when she’s paired with shapeshifter Jack Talent on a hunt for the killer known as the Bishop of Charing Cross. Mary and Jack have had an adversarial relationship for years. Working together will be difficult, not because of their rivalry but because Jack cares far too much for Mary. As information unfolds and secrets are revealed, complications thrust them into realms they never realized existed — worlds where their newfound love and trust are the only weapons they can use to destroy the darkest of evils.
