Staying DeadeBook - 2004
Manhattan's night life just got weirder ... It starts as a simple job - but simple jobs, when you're dealing with the magical world, often end up anything but.

But every once in a while ... Case in point: A cornerstone containing a spell is stolen and there's a magical complication. (Isn't there always') Wren's unique abilities aren't enough to lay this particular case to rest, so she turns to some friends: a demon (minor), a mage who has lost his mind, and a few others, including Sergei, her business partner (and maybe a bit more'). Sometimes what a woman has to do to get the job done is enough to give even Wren nightmares ...
