But when Catrin witnesses a murderer escaping the scene of his crime, she's pulled into a dangerous chain of events where the only certainty is that the killer will strike again. Assigned to investigate is the mysterious and brilliant Simon, whose insights into the mind of a predator are frighteningly accurate. As the grisly crimes continue, Catrin finds herself caught between killer and detective while hiding her own secret--a supernatural sight granted by the moon, destined to make her an outcast, and the only thing that might save her and those she loves from becoming the next victims...

"Readers are quickly absorbed into this rich world of magic, murder, and mystery set in the medieval era . . . Fans of high fantasy and mystery will enjoy the lush details, from the buildings to the various characters." --School Library Journal"Dark thrills for fans of psychology, magick, and murder." --Kirkus Reviews "Beaty's protagonist is a medieval version of Clarice from The Silence of the Lambs, and she is constantly surrounded by chauvinistic men who underestimate her . . . Readers will appreciate this period piece starring a heroine with uncharted gifts and bravado. An elementary choice of a read." --Booklist "[A] complex and socially conscious murder mystery set in a Western European-inspired medieval fantasy city that's hiding cataclysmic secrets . . . Beaty thoroughly and deftly examines prejudice against sex workers and people with mental illnesses, combining introspective dialogue, subtle magic, and hair-raising thrills for a riveting, thoughtful read." --Publishers Weekly
