Baker & Taylor
Wren Valere, a Retriever, specializes in finding missing things. Her job can be dangerous, and in this story she is looking for a cornerstone containing a spell. She has to ask the help of some friends: a demon, a mage, and a few others. Even with the help of her friends Wren runs into trouble.
Manhattan's night life just got weirder...
It starts as a simple job — but simple jobs, when you're dealing with the magical world, often end up anything but.
As a Retriever, Wren Valere specializes in finding things gone missing — and then bringing them back, no questions asked. Normally her job is stimulating, challenging and only a little bit dangerous. But every once in a while...
Case in point: A cornerstone containing a spell is stolen and there's a magical complication. (Isn't there always?) Wren's unique abilities aren't enough to lay this particular case to rest, so she turns to some friends: a demon (minor), a mage who has lost his mind, and a few others, including Sergei, her business partner (and maybe a bit more?).
Sometimes what a woman has to do to get the job done is enough to give even Wren nightmares....
When Wren Valere, a Retriever who has a gift for finding things, is hired by a rich client to reclaim a spell-infested cornerstone, she must call upon her friends--a demon, a mage, and her business partner--when her mission goes horribly wrong, resulting in the release of a deadly ghost. Reprint.
