Bridget O’Shea is a mother, a successful business woman, an expert on antiques…and a thief, a damn good one. But when she steals an ancient relic from a Manhattan apartment, she acquires a curse in the form of a Sumerian demon. The demon wants something from Bridget, killing people she cares about to force her cooperation, and it will continue to kill unless she meets its demands. Next in the demon’s sights? Bridget’s teenage son. Bridget must learn to communicate with the demon, divine what it wants, and satisfy it to keep her son alive. But she soon discovers that mollifying a creature from the pits of hell could damn her soul and send the world into chaos.
Bridget never wanted to be a hero. That’s for suckers. But now, she has no choice. She has to find a way to best the beast and keep its kin from reemerging, or . . . well, there really isn’t an “or.” She has to win.
“Masterful blend of fantasy, mystery, and adventure. The plot was satisfyingly intricate and just dark enough, but the most compelling component was Bridget O’Shea, a brilliantly complex and original protagonist. A walking contradiction, she’s a thief with an unbreakable moral code, brilliant but foolish, and blind but gifted with a special sight. In other words, she is the perfect blend of the heroic and a regular person. Loved it!” 5 star Amazon review
