Overview

The first rule of a supernatural fight club? Don't kill your opponent.

When the fighters come with lethal spells, werewolf strength, and half-demon powers, that can be a lot tougher than it sounds. It's hard to attract talent if they know they might not leave the ring alive. So when fighters at a California club start dying, it's bad for business.

Witch detectives Paige Winterbourne and Savannah Levine take the case. Going undercover in the power-heavy arena of the fight club is a welcome change of pace for Paige, relegated to the role of The Wife as her husband struggles to find his place in his family's Cabal—the corporate Mafia of the supernatural world.

As Paige is drawn deeper into new and dangerous corners of her world, she quickly discovers the greatest threat isn't the killer in her sights. It's something much, much closer to home. And this is one fight she can't afford to lose.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Armstrong weaves a fast-paced, action-heavy, and compelling tale in a short space.... [A] good place to start for readers new to Armstrong's urban-fantasy world." —Booklist
Publishers Weekly
This novella-sized episode in Armstrong's Women of the Otherworld series (Bitten, etc.) sends witch and investigator Paige Winterbourne underground with her Cabal-leading lawyer husband, Lucas Cortez, and their ward, Savannah. As they investigate the world of illegal supernatural fighting clubs, Lucas spends an awful lot of time with their beautiful half-demon client, bringing out Paige's romantic insecurities. The details of the simple murder mystery plot are unmemorable, but this short piece does a lot to highlight the emotions and interactions between Paige and Lucas and between Lucas and the rest of the Cabal, making this easy read a good introduction for new readers as well as a pleasant little extra for those who have been following the soap opera lives of these characters from the beginning. (Jan.)
