Rachel Morgan of Inderland Security isn't a very good runner,(or a witch). She has mistaken a dog for a werewolf, been responsible for a fairy getting eaten by a frog, and now she gets to take in a tax-evading leprechaun. All she wants is to quit her job and start her own runner service, however, the last person who tried to quit the IS actually exploded.
She thinks she has it made because her boss, the jerk vampire, actually wants her gone, but nothing is as it seems and Rachel finds herself with a contract on her head and nasty spells on all her property. Moving into a church, (after being evicted from her apartment as an unsafe witch) with a former IS vampire runner and a pixie isn't all it is cracked up to be. The vampire doesn't drink blood, but wants to open a vein from Rachel, and a pixie with a bad attitude makes things difficult.
Rachel feels her only way to get the contract removed is by bringing in IS's most wanted, a drug manufacturer they have been chasing for years.
