Publisher's Summary

Homicide detective Adam Garrett is already a rising star in the Boston police department when he and his cynical partner, Carl Landauer, catch a horrifying case that could make their careers: the ritualistic murder of a wealthy college girl that appears to have satanic elements.
The partners make a quick arrest when all evidence points to another student, a troubled musician in a Goth band who was either dating or stalking the murdered girl.
But Garrett's case is turned upside down when beautiful, mysterious Tanith Cabarrus, a practicing witch from nearby Salem, walks into the homicide bureau and insists that the real perpetrator is still at large. Tanith claims to have had psychic visions that the killer has ritually sacrificed other teenagers in his attempts to summon a powerful, ancient demon.
All Garrett's beliefs about the nature of reality will be tested as he is forced to team up with a woman he is fiercely attracted to but cannot trust, in a race to uncover a psychotic killer before he strikes again.

Excellent occult murder mystery...

This book is very bizarre. It is a murder mystery but it is also an occult book about practicing good witches and spells and channeling the dead and voodoo dolls and evil and murder. Hmmm, not normally my cup of tea BUT I have to say that I was really engrossed in this book.
There are three murders of teenagers, all missing their heads.
The homicide detective (Garrett) is skeptical when he's approached by a woman practicing white witchcraft. He has difficulty buying into her beliefs until the night she sneaks atropine into a glass of wine and he has visions that he's able to prove are true.
This book is wild and I found myself siding with the detective right to the very end. This is the same author who writes the Huntress/FBI series, which I love. This book is very different than that series but her writing style remains the same and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
R C Bray does a superb job narrating.
I HIGHLY RECOMMENDED this book. If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.
