Book 3 of The Border Trilogy

An explosion has stolen Phoenix police detective Annie O'Brien's hearing, but left her with a preternaturally heightened sense of empathy. Surrounded by emotions she can't cope with and unable to do her job anymore, Annie accepts a job in a small New Mexico town, away from the big city and her former life.

But that job-proving the innocence of a man accused of a double murder-turns out to be more complicated than expected. And so does life in the country outside the small town of Drummond, not least because it's located near the ruins of New Dominion, a border town that was, decades earlier, the site of a devastating massacre.

Now an ancient evil is rising from the ashes of New Dominion, and Annie, haunted by tragedy and threatened by enemies both human and demonic, must stop its ascension...but will she survive?
