The Taken Paperback / softback
The first book in a new sexy, supernatural mystery series, from New York Times bestselling urban fantasy author Vicki Pettersson. Griffin Shaw used to be a PI, but that was back when gumshoes hoofed the streets . . . and he was still alive. Fifty years later, he's a celestial Centurion, assisting the recently, and violently, dead.
Yet just because he's an angel doesn't mean he's a saint.
One small mistake has altered fate, and now he's been dumped back onto to the mortal mudflat to collect another soul - Katherine "Kit" Craig, a journalist whose latest investigation is about to get her clipped. Bucking heavenly orders, Grif refuses to let this sable-haired siren with hairpin curves come to harm.
Besides, protecting her offers a chance to find the truth about his own mysterious death - and wreak some vengeance for the murder of his beloved wife, Evie. Joining forces, Kit and Grif's search for answers leads beyond the blinding lights of the Strip into the dark heart of an evil conspiracy.
But a ruthless killer determined to destroy them isn't Griffin's biggest threat.
His growing attraction to Kit could cost them both their lives, as well as the answer to the greatest mystery of his long afterlife ... Who killed Griffin Shaw?
