(From the publisher):
Gin, gems, and life in the fast lane... Chrysanda Flamande was the sultriest vamp of the silver screen. She had everything - fawning friends, glittering parties, exotic diversions, and baubles to spare.
Then an elderly Chinese gentleman warned her that the fabulous trinket she'd worn in her latest screen triumph had marked her to be the bride of an ancient devil-god of Manchuria. Chris paid him not the slightest heed - until the stunt double who'd also worn the jewel was hideously murdered.
The Rat God's trap began to close. And as her doom stalked closer and her fair-weather friends fell away, Chris grew ever more desperate. But how could she thwart the mystical power and monstrous guile of the fiend that hunted her? What human force could keep the demon Rat God from claiming his unwilling bride?
