Daphne, our intrepid hero from Beyond the Pale and Past Redemption, is recently single and back on the job. This time, Team Darkwing must stop the assassination of a presidential candidate. J suspects that there is a high profile assassin in town to handle the job, an assassin that signs their work as Gage. This assassin is good, but who are they. Daphne and Benny go undercover to find out. At the same time, Cormac finds out why he's been assigned to Opus Dei and a new, good looking and mysterious new team member named Tallmadge is added to the team. Tallmadge brings out the dark side in Daphne, and she doesn't like it because she feels that she is now more than what lives beneath the skin(a big humanoid bat that flies and drinks blood but also likes to play with its food).
The story is pretty good and entertaining. However, the character names are still really, really bad to the point of detracting from the story. One note: if you like your heroines to be monogamous, you should avoid this book. Daphne runs a bit amuck in the lust/love department in this book (more power to her).
