A dead body.
A missing daughter.
A silver blade.
All the clues point to one person: Me.
My name is Evangeline, and I’m a retired assassin who wants nothing to do with the underworld. But an edict from a Demonic Lord forces me to return to the man and the life I left behind.
I have seven days to prove my innocence.
Whoever set me up is going to die.
“Eve, I need your help with a body again.”
I glanced at my watch and frowned. “It’s only nine o’clock.”
“Yeah, my date ended earlier than I expected.”
I couldn’t close the bar for at least another hour. Sheriff Montgomery was only on his second of the usual four drinks, Billy hadn’t passed out yet, and Betsy had just arrived with her worthless excuse of a husband.
It was shaping up to be a typical Thursday night at Violet’s Bar, including the call I had just received from my best friend.
I slid a glass of water over to Rosie, who looked ready to fall off her barstool, while balancing the phone between my ear and shoulder.
“I’ll be home around eleven.”
“Ugh, really? But he’s starting to smell,” Gwen whined. “And he’s oozing all over your rug.”
“Rug? What rug?” And why the hell would she wrap a body in it when there were plastic gardening sheets in the garage for this purpose? It wasn’t like this was her first bad date.
“It’s just a rug,” she muttered.
“Wait…” I turned to face the back wall and dropped my voice to a whisper. “Are you talking about my oriental rug?”
“What other rug could I possibly be referring to?”
“Gwen!” I snapped. “That’s an antique!”
