Once again, must everyone thinks that Evy Stone is dead but as with the first two books in this series, it doesn't last long. It all begins with a eathquake caused by two battling fae. Wyatt calls for information about what is happening but he is stymied by the triads and he and Evy are ordered to sit by the phone. When a fae shows up at their door after being wounded by some kind of biological experiment both Evy and Wyatt are drawn into the struggle.
You would think that with everything that happened in As Lie the Dead and Three Days to Dead, that the triads would just stop assuming that Evy is dead. I guess the whole fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me thing doesn't apply here. At any rate, this time Evy is desired for her ability to heal.
