New from the national bestselling author of Deathwish It's time to lock, load, and hit the road... Once, while half-human Cal Leandros and his brother Niko were working on a case, an ancient gypsy queen gave them a good old-fashioned backstabbing. Now, just as their P.I. business hits a slow patch, the old crone shows up with a job. She wants them to find a stolen coffin that contains a blight that makes the Black Death seem like a fond memory. But the thief has already left town, so the Leandros brothers are going on the road. And if they're very, very lucky, there might even be a return trip...

He's not Robin, he's not even Delilah (who ap...
Like the previous book this one doesn't focus on Cal's POV; it's shared with Catcher - the cousin of Rafferty stuck in wolf form. Haven't heard that name in a while, huh? He was the healer that helped them out in the first book and then disappeared until this one. This time the POV of switch ups are...
