Irene must stay sharp - her future rests on a knife edge
Peace talks can be tricky . . . but matters turn lethal when a key diplomat is stabbed. This murder rudely interrupts a top-secret summit between the warring dragons and Fae, so Librarian spy Irene is summoned to investigate. In a version of 1890s Paris, Irene and her detective friend Vale must track down the killer - before either the peace negotiations, or the city, go up in flames.
Accusations fly thick and fast. And Irene soon finds herself in the seedy depths of the Parisian underworld on the trail of a notorious Fae, the Blood Countess. However, their evidence is circumstantial. Could the assassin - or assassins - be someone no one would suspect?
