After a year apart, Evelyn is suddenly thrust back into the life she thought she’d left behind. Gertrude has gone missing and a jaded local detective is sure Evelyn knows what’s happened.
Detective Rick Sullivan knows trouble. He’s lived and breathed it his entire life. When a local wife and mother goes missing, his keen sense tells him there’s more to the story.
As he muddles through a tangled web of lies and betrayal, more dark secrets are revealed. Will they lead to the missing woman or will his discoveries lead to more trouble?
Cate roams the world a shell of the deity she once was—a dry remark in one hand and a penchant for conflict in the other. Ordered by Hades to stand down or lose her soul forever, Hecate—Goddess of the Crossroads—must bear witness to something sinister brewing in the bowels of the city. Isis is building an army of bloodsuckers and is determined to bring a war to the mortal world.
Having suffered a devastating betrayal by the human Connor, Cate seems content to let it play out until Isis’s new children start leaving a pile of bodies all over the city. There’s also a new powerful player in town who has a grudge against everyone. How long will Cate stand at the crossroads while these powerful beings turn Manhattan into their bloody playground?
Hecate (Cate) is a fallen goddess pining over the loss of her soul to Hades. How does an immortal trapped in a human body cope with ennui and a persistent ex? She does what every human does, of course. She drinks too much and sees her therapist once a week. Pithy and sadly lacking in social skills, Cate is determined to make the most of her ordinary life, even if Hades has other plans for her.
