Harper returns to Seattle in response to an urgent summons from Edward Kammerling, the vampire who rules over all of Seattle's other vampires. It's not that Harper likes him - far from it - but the vampire is too powerful for Harper to ignore or snub him. Kammerling hires her to travel to England to find out why the keeper of his accounts in that part of the world has gone silent. Harper is actually happy to have the excuse, because she's been having nightmares about her former boyfriend, Will Novak, and wants to make certain that he's okay. It has its own unique take among the enormous flood of paranormal series, which is pretty hard to do these days. In fact, just about everything is unique and not a recycled take on some other popular series. I give respect to the author for dreaming up the Grey and for not making every monster sexy. Actually any of the monsters. And especially for not creating a 3-way with love interests or the usual instant love and making it very secondary to the plot.

This installment offered some useful background information on Harper, though at times it felt like something of an info-dump. The London setting was a nice change, though it seemed to draw less heavily on the kind of urban legend landscapes that the earlier novels do in Seattle. Perhaps this isn't unexpected as Richardson lives in Seattle, and not in London.

We finally get some information about greywalkers, and several plot points that began in the first book were followed up here.

In all, a good installment. ( )

This one is for "the mums," Joy and Sandra, who are nothing like Harper's mother. Thank God.

Book description
In her fourth adventure, Seattle PI Harper Blaine delves into her own past and makes some shocking discoveries.

It seems that before her father committed suicide, he had witnessed some bizarre supernatural events. With barely any time to process this new info, Harper is pressured by a group of vampires into an investigation in London—where old foes and more revelations await.
