Thorn works after dark. That s when she combines her gifts as a tattoo artist and her powers as a natural born witch to weave magick into her ink. Her tattoo parlor, Stained, on Berkeley s quirky Telegraph Avenue draws clients from all walks of life. Her work is in high demand from the supernatural community and the undead.
With her raven familiar, Thorn s been on the run all her adult life. She won t talk about why. Only she knows of the horrors in her past. She only wants to practice her art of tattooing in peace. But when a murderer targets her clients, S , a tall, dark and Irish detective is assigned to investigate. They must trust each other to survive the cat and mouse game that ensues.
