"Satisfying and spellbinding....I just loved this book."—Charlaine Harris

When two secret organizations are forced to merge after years of enmity and bloodshed, only one person has the fearsome powers—and the bureaucratic finesse—to get the job done. Rook Myfanwy Thomas must broker a deal between two bitter adversaries:

The Checquy—the centuries-old covert organization that protects society from supernatural threats, and...

The Grafters—a supernatural threat.

But as bizarre attacks sweep London and threaten negotiations, old hatreds flare. Surrounded by spies, only the Rook and two women who absolutely loathe each other can find the culprits before they trigger all-out war.

STILETTO is a novel of preternatural diplomacy, paranoia, and snide remarks from an author who "adroitly straddles the thin line between fantasy, thriller, and spoof." (Booklist)

It had been so long since I read The Rook, but Stilleto got me caught up in the story quite easily. Surprisingly hilarious too. Looking forward to more from Mr. O'Malley.

The characters were not quite as warm and realistic as the original in the Rook, but a great story nonetheless.

I LOVED this book! It was tongue in cheek, at times absurd, and despite the grim story, made me smile. I highly recommend it. And David O'Malley, can't wait for your next book.
