Jayne follows Under Wraps with a hilarious second tale of the Underworld Detection Agency. Sophie Lawson's hunky on-again/off-again boyfriend, Alex, is a fallen angel in search of a mysterious artifact called the Vessel of Souls that could help him restore his wings. His big challenge is getting to it before other fallen angels do. Sophie's got problems of her own: the Underworld Detection Agency's San Francisco branch is under new management, and as the only human on staff, Sophie knows her executive assistant job is at risk. This urban fantasy tale smartly balances riveting action with wonderful light touches like the Vampire Empowerment and Restoration Movement, which protests Hollywood's portrayal of vampires; paperwork-filled supernatural bureaucracy; and pixie-size bathroom stalls. New readers and returning fans will find it entirely accessible and enjoyable. (Nov.)
