(From the publisher):
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 jobs 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...
