In this novel, Quincy Harker Morris is an occult investigator. He is from Austin, Texas.
Elizabeth Catherine Chastain is a white witch. Libby and Morris are partners.
Dale Fenton is a Special Agent in the FBI Behavioral Science Section. He is a Black, but uses white magic.
Colleen O'Donnell is a Special Agent in the FBI Behavioral Science Section. She is a white witch.
Barry Love is an occult investigator in New York City. He knows Morris and Chastain from a prior case.
Theron Ware is an agent of Satan. He practices black magic.
In this story, Morris is released from jail. The charges have been dropped and the POTUS has sent him a nice letter. He will add it to his collection.
Libby is waiting for his release. Naturally, the staff is twenty-four minutes late in releasing Morris. Libby blinks her lights and drives the rented car up to the sidewalk to save him a walk. They discuss several things, including food and liquor, but agree that they need to get back to work soon.
They are hired by a Catholic monastery to solve a theft. The thieve has gotten through mundane and occult defenses to steal a five volume set of very rare books. Some of the information in these volumes probably goes back to Solomon.
Their first task is to find someone capable of the deed. The sisters don't know of any person with such skills, except Morris. So they check with another occult investigator.
Barry doesn't know anyone with the skill sets required for the job. He contacts someone else, who gives them a name. While they are there, Libby mixes up a potion than banishes a hellhound.
Meanwhile, Theron and his teams are ritually sacrificing priests to Satan. Then they burn down the religious building with thermite. The FBI Civil Rights Section is investigating the fires as hate crimes.
Colleen and Fenton have discovered that black magic had been used in the first case. They know that the Civil Rights Section agents won't have a clue in this case. So their boss allows Fenton and Colleen to hire Morris and Chastain, but they are busy with their own case. Morris says that they will start on the FBI case as soon as the current one is resolved.
This tale leaks word of the job offer on an unofficial gossip site. Wake reads the site and learns that Morris and Chastain are supposedly investigating his actions. So Wade decides to target the couple.
Ware fails to kill Morris & Chastain. The next installment in this sequence is Midnight at the Oasis. This story and the next novel are also available in a printed format omnibus edition.
Highly recommended for Gustainis fans and for anyone else who enjoys tales of supernatural creatures, occult investigations, and a bit of lust. Read and enjoy!
-Arthur W. Jordin
