). A nice guy might be moving into Rachel's town and life, but she's still getting over her last boyfriend, whose murder she has yet to solve. Elf politician Trent Kalamack wants her to go to the ever-after on a dangerous mission. Rynn Cormel, Cincinnati's new master vampire and ex-leader of the free world, is interfering in her life. Her friend, former demon familiar Ceri, is unexpectedly pregnant, by an unexpected partner. On top of all this, Rachel worries she may have had a too close encounter with a vampire and soon becomes concerned about her own abilities with demon magic. With the help of her feisty mother, Alice, and her pixy partner, Jenks, Rachel boldly tackles every challenge amid a cascade of plot twists that will delight Harrison's fans. 9-city author tour.(Mar.)

The fifth book in the Hollows series puts witch and former bounty hunter Rachel Morgan in still more trouble. The demon’s bargain she made a few books back left her vulnerable to demon attacks, and now someone, probably a demon, is trying to kill her. In trying to locate and trap the killer, she has to dig into much more of the past than she ever wanted to know about. Then there are her gentlemen (men?) friends. Rachel’s mother wants her to find a nice guy of some species and settle down. But Rachel is looking at all the problems too many of her friends have with significant others and doesn’t want to lengthen her own quandary list. Harrison’s characterization is as intricate, and her plot as intriguing, as in her previous books. It’s easy to see why she’s so popular among fantasy and romance fans. However, newcomers to the series should begin with the first, Dead Witch Walking (2004). --Frieda Murray
