Pioneer Square's homeless are turning up dead and mutilated, and zombies have been seen roaming the underground--the city buried beneath modern Seattle. When Harper's friend Quinton believes he may be implicated in the deaths, he persuades her to investigate. But the killer is no mere murderer--it is a creature of ancient legend. And Harper must deal with both the living and the dead to stop the monster and its master...unless they stop her first.

"Richardson crafts a creepy and downright scary supernatural thriller." -Romantic Times

"Part Indian folklore, part detailed urban history, part PI procedural, part monster-from-the-depths horror story." -Booklist
