A modern-day supernatural crime thriller set in a fictional west coast city, from the New York Times bestselling author and co-creator of the comic book-turned hit TV show iZombie.
Izzie Lefevre was the newest investigator for the FBIâs Behavioral Analysis Unit when she first came to Recondito, a coastal city thatâs been shrouded in mystery and legend for centuries. Local law enforcement had requested the Bureauâs assistance in hunting a sword-wielding serial killer whoâd left a dozen mutilated bodies in his wake. Patrick Tevake was a local homicide detective assigned to the taskforce, and together he and Izzie managed to track down and stop the killer before he claimed another victim.
Five years later, Izzie and Patrick remain haunted by what the killer said before he fell in a hail of gunfire. Izzieâs ancestors were Âmambos,â voodoo priestesses who claimed to communicate with the dead and protect the faithful from evil spirits. Patrickâs Polynesian great uncle told stories of Reconditoâs supernatural menaces that lurk in flame and shadow. The killerâs last words have brought up a past both Izzie and Patrick thought theyâd long since left behind, and neither has been able to shake the feeling that their case was never completely solved.
So when Patrick, now working with the vice squad to investigate a dangerous new street drug, discovers a connection between the street drug and the serial killerâs victims, he realizes that their instincts were right: the threat is far from over. Reunited again, he and Izzie will discover that Recondito is a city of dark secrets, and their own pasts may be the key to unlocking them.
