Overview
It s the Roaring Twenties in foggy San Francisco. Prohibition is on, inhibitions are low, and dark magic is rolling into town
Archaeologist Lowe Magnusson is packing something everyone wants. The djed amulet, a priceless Egyptian artifact, will fetch Lowe a hefty paycheck from one of San Francisco s wealthiest. But when the handsome Swede runs into his patron s uptight daughter, what he once considered easy money becomes maddeningly complicated
Cursed with deadly spirits as her constant companions, curator Hadley Bacall must keep calm to hold her dangerous specters at bay and prevent them from lashing out at anything or anyone. Trouble is, Lowe is driving her crazy, but her father needs the artifact he s transporting. While Hadley can feel the amulet s power, she can t fathom the destruction or the desire it s about to stir up."

Lowe Magnusson is a brazen liar, and his scheming makes Bennett’s second Roaring Twenties romance much less satisfying than its predecessor, Bitter Spirits. Lowe, a kind of amoral Indiana Jones, cares about money and sex, in that order, and seeks both without inhibition. While on the lam, he encounters a funereally dressed woman on a train platform; he arranged the meeting for the purpose of bilking her and promptly forgot, but she refuses to miss her chance to recover a rare artifact in his possession. Archaeologist Hadley Bacall is as unpleasantly cold as Lowe is aggressively oversexed; when Lowe says “What a little snob you are,” the reader can only agree. Hadley is also every bit as self-centered in pursuing her career, albeit more constrained by social mores. There’s not a lot of potential joy in this setup. Glimpses of characters from the previous book coax a little warmth into the situation, but it never truly blazes into romance. Agent: Laura Bradford, Bradford Literary Agency. (June)
