Janet Evanovich has created a new heroine in Elizabeth Tucker: Marblehead resident, bakery worker, unlucky in love... and descendant of witches.
Life is pleasantly predictable for Lizzy, until a tall, black-haired, dark eyed man shows up. His name is Gerwulf Grimoire, also known as Wulf. And he wants what Lizzy has: knowledge. Almost simultaneously comes another man, a different man, but this one is just as dangerous. His name is Diesel. And he wants several things Lizzy has, only one of them being knowledge.
Unbeknownst to Lizzy, she has the ability to find 'empowered objects'. A collection of stones that represent the seven deadly sins have made their way to Marblehead. If the stones are grouped together, they have the power to unleash hell on earth. Wulf wants them. Diesel wants to stop him. And Lizzy is the key to all of it.
Can Lizzy stay one step ahead of two men who both want her...both body and soul?
Janet Evanovich now lives in New Hampshire but, like Stephanie Plum, grew up in New Jersey.
