Murder hits close to home for a certain werewolf in the latest mystery by USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackstream

When a murder investigation starts with a mutilated corpse and a savage, newly-turned werewolf, it's normal to hope things improve from there.

But in Shade's experience, it's more likely things will get worse.

Much worse.

A mutiny is brewing in the local werewolf pack, and a homicide involving a close ally of the alpha—Detective Sergeant Liam Osbourne—is exactly the crack in his armor his enemies have been waiting for.

Together with Liam and her FBI partner, Agent Andrew Bradford, Shade will need to stretch her powers to dangerous limits to find the conspirator—not only to prevent another grisly killing, but to halt a campaign of terror reaching far beyond the blood-stained crime scene.

Can they solve the case before treason rips Liam's pack in two?

About the Author

USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Blackstream is...odd. Putting aside the fact that she writes her own author bio in third person, she also sleeps with a stuffed My Little Pony that her grandmother bought her as a joke for her 23rd birthday, and she enjoys listening to Fraggle Rock soundtracks whether or not her children are in the car.

Jennifer makes it a point to spend at least one night a week with her sibling binge-watching whatever show they're currently plowing through, and she ferociously guards quality time with her son and daughter. She cooks when she has the sanity for it and tries not to let her arachnophobia keep her out of her basement on laundry day.

Jennifer's influences include Terry Pratchett (for wit), Laurell K. Hamilton (for sexual tension), Jim Butcher (for roguish flair), and Kim Harrison (for mythos). She is currently writing the series of her heart and her dreams, the series that has been percolating in her brain for the last decade...Blood Trails. An Urban Fantasy Mystery series that will combine the classic whodunit spirit with a contemporary fantasy setting. Expect mystery, magic, and mayhem, with characters that will make you laugh, cry, and probably stare at the screen with your jaw hanging down to the floor. Well, that's how they affect Jennifer anyway...

It's another wild ride with Ohio's resourceful village witch-turned private detective Shade Renard and her impulsive and tough-talking pixie familiar Peasblossom, this time through the minefield of werewolf politics and delicate alliances. Shade's been working hard to earn the trust of her two stand-offish sometime partners in crime-solving: Rocky River werewolf pack alpha and metroparks ranger Detective Sergeant Liam Osbourne and FBI Agent Andrew Bradford. The latter is still adjusting to the presence of the Otherworld's supernatural creatures on his turf and Shade worries he's a bit too at ease with shooting the "monsters" he deems threatening. Her rock-and-a-hard-place pact with a notorious fey is proving more treacherous a pitfall than ever before. Especially since she's put off telling Liam about what she owes...or sorting out her feelings for him and what he wants from her. Shade and Agent Bradford are drawn into Liam's private world when the murder of a would-be big game hunter by a newly turned werewolf forces him to invite them into New Moon Recovery Center, where vulnerable and volatile new werewolves become acclimated to life as shapeshifters. It soon comes out that someone from Liam's family may have been kidnapped OR may be responsible for unleashing the out-of-control new werewolf on the murder victim. Liam's desperation to find the truth puts him on edge at precisely the the time he needs control the most to stop an uprising by his pack's newest and brashest wolves. As always the series' banter and snark are great fun (usually Peasblossom), the combat scenes (which in most series I skim) are intense and riveting, the mythical monsters revealed are truly menacing, and hero Shade is tough without needing a gun or advanced martial arts.

I am loving Shade. She is not perfect but she is trying to be a good person and do the right thing and help people. Can’t wait to see how she deals with Flint and what develops with Liam. So many stories left to tell! I need to not tear through the books so fast
