Description
I stopped and let them circle me, first because it was intriguing and, second, because, honestly, what could they do? Only knives, but all armed, and that made them even more interesting. Interesting. Fun.
Playtime…

Taking on bloodthirsty supernatural monsters is how Caliban and Niko Leandros make a living. But years ago—before they became a force to be reckoned with—the brothers were almost victims of a very human serial killer.
Almost.
Unfortunately for them, that particular depraved killer was working as apprentice to a creature far more malevolent—the legendary Spring-heeled Jack. He’s just hit town. He hasn’t forgotten what the Leandros brothers did to his murderous protégé. He hasn’t forgotten what they owe him.
 
And now they are going to pay…and pay…and pay.…

        Cal Leandros, who is half human and half Auphe (a monstrous version of elves), and his human brother Nick make their living by hunting the supernatural creatures who prey on humans. Now a serial killer with ties to Spring-Heeled Jack is on the prowl, and he has a grudge against Cal. The eighth addition to this urban fantasy series (after Doubletake) should please Thurman's many fans.

        Something is skinning humans alive and leaving the remains around New York City for bragging rights. Brazenly confident and competent in their abilities, Caliban and Niko Leandros make a living catching supernatural killers. Yet this particular supernatural killer hearkens back to years before, when Cal and Niko were just children forced to fend for themselves from the serial killer next door, and fendand killis exactly what they did. Now as adults, their childhood nightmare has returned and he wants revenge at any cost. Classified as urban fantasy, this is the latest installment in the Cal Leandros series. This combo thriller and mystery will send your readers back into the stacks looking for more from this New York Times best-selling author.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2013, American Library Association.)
