When linguist Andrea Davis finds the body of one of her favorite professors, she notices the note pinned to the corpse is written in Old English—and the murder scene is straight out of an ancient tale.

Detective Brady Lancaster is drawn to the quiet fire burning behind the terror in Andrea's eyes, even if she did stand him up once. But when more bodies turn up, each bearing a similar note, her status as a witness changes—now she is at the head of their suspect list.
To prove her innocence, Brady will have to go rogue—before she becomes the killer's next target.
