What secrets lie shrouded in darkness? Okay, so jogging through Central Park after midnight wasn't a bright idea. But Margrit Knight never thought she'd encounter a dark new world filled with magical beings -- not to mention a dying woman and a mysterious stranger with blood on his hands. Her logical, lawyer instincts told her it couldn't all be real -- but she could hardly deny what she'd seen . . . and touched. The mystery man, Alban, was a gargoyle. One of the fabled Old Races who had hidden their existence for centuries. Now he was a murder suspect, and he needed Margrit's help to take the heat off him and find the real killer. As they worked together to figure out who was framing Alban, Margrit discovered that this man with a heart -- and body -- of stone made her feel more alive than ever, And as the dead pile up, it's a race against the sunrise to clear Alban's name and keep them both alive . . .

Murphy's trilogy was one of my first urban fantasy series and it stuck with me enough that I can still remember the books five years later. C...
I bought this book on a whim and am so glad I did. I really enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The story was fast paced, with loads of fun characters, lots of funny moments along with serious, and I really enjoyed the tension between Margrit and Alban. For me, it was just a fun read. And I love...
3.5 rounded up to 4.I wasn't really sure what to expect from this book as the Negotiator trilogy isn't one that I hear mentioned very often in my book reading circles in comparison to her more popular Walker Papers series. So I was a bit nervous about starting it; wondering if the reason there was n...
I'm listening to the audiobook and also have the paperback.Was it me? I just did not get the attraction to Alban. I have this strange fascination with gargoyles so you'd think that mysterious stranger plus gargoyle I'd be all over it. But he seemed to be begging Margrit for time, attention, to "h...
