Description

Manhattan has many secrets. Some are older than the city itself.
Winter in New York: snow falls, lights twinkle, and the goddess Artemis prowls the streets looking for prey.
But when a dead body is discovered sprawled atop Wall Street's iconic Charging Bull statue, it's clear the NYPD can't solve the murder without help. The killing isn't just the work of another homicidal cult - this time, someone's sacrificing the gods themselves.
While raising fundamental questions about the very existence of the gods, Artemis must hunt down the perpetrators, tracking a conspiracy that will test the bonds of loyalty and love.

Review quote

Readers who enjoy detective fiction, ancient Greco-Roman myth, and a bit of romance will enjoy this series * Booklist * If you want a modern day murder mystery, steeped in myth with a dash of magic, this is a must read . . . Ms. Brodsky is definitely an author to watch * Fantasy Faction * Intelligent, provocative fantasy [that] breathes exciting new life into old, familiar tales * Publishers Weekly * Urban fantasy done with great panache and intelligence: Brodsky knows her myth, and revels in depicting the erstwhile gods struggling with their fading powers and assuming, with varying degrees of success, the mantle of humanity * Guardian * A lively re-imagining of classical mythology with an engaging premise, a page-turning plot, and an eye for the arresting and uncanny -- Deborah Harkness, New York Times bestselling author of A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES
