Elementals have populated the earth for countless years, honing their magical talents specific to their element: Earth, Air, Fire or Water. In rare cases, an elemental may have power with more than one element, making him or her a more powerful foe than a singularly blessed elemental would typically encounter. Gin Blanco,
known as "the Spider," has been the go-to assassin for years and an Earth elemental to boot.
What most don’t know is that she possesses water elemental powers as well.
Since her retirement, Gin has been running the restaurant left to her by an old friend,
and the lack of excitement is becoming more than a little dreary. She should be careful what she wishes for since trouble with a capital
"T" has just found its way into her diner. The repercussions of tangling in this little mess will
reverberate beyond her wildest imaginings and might actually answer some questions about her past that she has never been able to uncover. Whatever…what’s one more enemy in a city full of them?
In an effort to save a girl from a painful death, Gin is soon digging for answers among the
city's powerful elite. Why does anyone want to kill this girl, anyway? Donning disguises and snooping around some major players in a prospective new mining operation, Gin discovers that an attempted murder is small business compared to the plans
taking shape. The corrupt city officials will be no aid against the levels of power ruling this monstrosity of a mining operation.
Jennifer Estep knows how to deliver a non-stop, edge-of-your-seat thrill ride for all. The cast of characters fluctuate from sexy and dangerous, determined and heroic to dark and evil. Assassin Gin Blanco is as feisty as they come with killer skills that
can drop the most intimidating opponent while still maintaining her humanity. This terrific read will keep bedtime a fantasy until the last page is turned.
