Kylah Porter is a specialist. Her job is to ensure that nothing unpleasant sneaks across the border into our world from all the others. Because something is always trying, the monstrous little buggers.
When a high-profile politician disappears from a house under armed guard, the authorities are clueless. The arcane symbols daubed on his bedroom wall don't help. Neither does the fact that they're written in his own dripping blood. For supernatural investigator Kylah, this is a chance to earn her spurs. But as well as confronting an unsolvable puzzle, she faces hostility in the shape the cynical police officer running the investigation. He doesn't believe in the occult. He's convinced it's just another murky urban crime. But Kylah suspects someone's paying a terrible price for dabbling in the dark arts. She knows her career and the missing man's life are on the line. But time is running out for the both of them…
