Synopsis: They say opposites attract. And in the case of werewolves Anna Latham and Charles Cornick, they mate. The son-and enforcer-of the leader of the North American werewolves, Charles is a dominant alpha. While Anna, an omega, has the rare ability to calm others of her kind.
Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles.
Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston, when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves-all of them were. Someone is targeting their kind. And now Anna and Charles have put themselves right in the killer's sights...
As a result of Bran revealing the wolves to the public, it has created a lot of issues among the packs and lots of wolves are breaking the rules. It's a lot more death sentences that usual, Bran is cracking down with every infraction, no matter if he would have given a second chance in the past. We get a brief interaction with Adam, from the Mercy Thompson series, and that’s where we find out time-wise where we are in the scheme of both series. This book takes place right after Mercy's huge injury that left her in a wheel chair at the end of River Marked and before Frost Burned where the Fae have been called back to their reservation. Adam suggest to Bran a way to give Charles an overdue break from being full time executioner while at the same time finally utilizing Anna and her talents to help with an important request for help.
