(From the publisher):
Beatrice O'Connell's orderly life is thrown into chaos when her father is viciously murdered. Discovered missing from his library is a manual of black magic that dates back to the 15th century. With the help of a chain-smoking occultist, a social worker in Spanish Harlem, and a remorseful ex-husband, Beatrice struggles to piece together the puzzle.
