'First-class imagination and first-class storytelling' Jeff Vandermeer, bestselling author of the SOUTHERN REACH trilogy
Walking between the worlds has always been dangerous - but this time V's facing the loss of all she holds dear.
Verity Fassbinder thought no boss could be worse than her perfectionist ex-boyfriend - until she agreed to work for a fallen angel. The angel is a jealous - and violent - employer, so she's quit working for the Weyrd Council and sent her family away.
The angel has tasked V with finding two lost treasures. That would be hard even without a vengeful Dusana Nadasy on her heels. And Inspector McIntyre won't stop calling: the bodies of Normal women who disappeared decades ago are turning up, apparently subjected to Weyrd magics. Angelic demands or not, this isn't something V can walk away from.
And the angel is getting impatient for results . . .
