What’s the difference between a lawyer and a vampire? One’s a bloodsucking parasitic monster, and the other one frequently wears a cape.
Atina Leroux’s got a decent law practice going. It helps that she’s the only human lawyer in Binghamton who knows about the supernatural community. But with success comes notoriety, and with notoriety comes people who need help. When a young woman stumbles into her office ranting about a dead boyfriend and with suspicious bite marks on her throat, Atina finds herself falling in the deep end of supernatural politics.
Now the Night Court is being called to order. People are making dire threats, friends are terrified, and old players are getting back into the game. In the face of recent events, the supernatural world’s starting to panic, and power structures that have been stable for hundreds of years are shifting. Atina’s going to have to deal with punk ghouls, soccer hooligan fairies, undead mafiosos, an entire jury of hidebound undead, and more vampires than you can shake a cross at.
The only thing keeping her alive is that murder is considered terribly sloppy as a way to make an argument, and when the stakes are this high, embarrassment might not be enough to save her life.
