Emotions unite; ideas divide. A maverick inquisitor finds what he wants is absolutely not what he needs. More
Conway Cave’s job requires him to be bedfellows with a Browning Hi-Power, to seize heretics and confessions using any means necessary.
He is an inquisitor for the Sydney branch of the Holy Office. Nearing the end of a long sick leave he calls a “holiday,” he's recovering from a werewolf assault and avoiding Sonya Romney—friend-with-benefits, gossip columnist—in an attempt to ignore his growing feelings for her.
But when his partner is imprisoned by the Grand Inquisitor for conspiring with a werewolf terrorist, Conway suspects the Grand Inquisitor of a cover-up and goes against the Holy Office to prove it. This means scraping together allies fast, without the Grand Inquisitor and his gargoyle spies catching on.
To protect his friends, Conway has to hunt down the so-called terrorist and expose two sex scandals entangling the Grand Inquisitor and a high-profile bishop. Conway enlists Sonya's investigative prowess, promising her a front-page scoop, and makes a protective pact with a vampire underworld figure. But his partner's wife is making desperate deals of her own.
As Conway falls in love with Sonya, and the Grand Inquisitor sets a killer trap, how will he be able to follow his heart without getting his brains blown out?
