(From the publisher):
Another fine novel in the Garret, P.I. series. This is the book where Garret meets Winger, and has his showdown with Chodo Contague.(IBList synopsis)
Somebody had lost a lot of brass and everyone wanted to find it. And now the stakes were getting so rich it made even a hard-boiled detective like Garrett nervous. Then the casualties began piling up, starting with Garrett's own beautiful red-haired girlfriend. Garrett was out to draw some blood in revenge -- at least until two other redheads turned up at his front door... and until he found himself the center of unwelcome attention from every thug and would-be sorcerer in town.
Thats when he knew he'd have to find the prize everyone was after, the legendary Book of Shadows, made of brass and holding secrets no mortal was ever meant to master -- and either sell it to the safest bidder or make sure no one ever had the chance to work its spells on his unsuspecting and unprotected world....
