Fans of urban fantasy will find themselves sleep-deprived after they start this new series. It’s that hard to put down. Characters with larger-than-life personalities rule against a dark and dangerous backdrop. This is an exciting world you’ll want to escape into again and again. Don’t worry, the next book will be out in July!
The dead rose and the government fell. The powerful Church of Real Truth is now in charge and will reimburse citizens being harassed by the dead. Of course, this results in numerous false claims. Chess Putnam, witch and ghost hunter, has a knack for detecting false claims as well as banishing the deceased, but Chess has her own problems. She owes money to a murderous drug lord named Bump. He wants her to pay him back by performing a job involving black magic and human sacrifice. As if that’s not dangerous enough, Chess is attracted to Bump’s ruthless enforcer.
