Another work day, another case for the Bloodhound Files.

But with the help of her former lover, Tanaka-whose family is one of the last samurai clans left in Japan-she stands a chance at seeking justice for the condemned children . . . Until the Yakuza tries to put an end to Jace's investigation. Jace risks more than death-this time, it's the fate of her very soul that's in danger. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Loving the series! Would like to have seen more Cassius though. Jace and Charlie are a great team, I love the snarky dialogue . Can't wait to see what happens! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marcia | 1/21/2014

    " Read this book and can barely remember it. Done with this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ming Haugen | 1/19/2014

    " Who knew Vancouver BC was such a pit of sin. In this fifth book in the series Jace and snappy dresser Charlie team up with Eisfanger and (wait for it ... Aristotle Stoker) to solve a crime involving vampire children. Another fine dark, twisty piece of work from Barant. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Franny (The Reader's Edge) | 1/14/2014

    " Love this series. I highly recommend it to Urban Fantasy Fans. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Iris (Paranormal Cravings) | 1/9/2014

    " So I ended with book 4 that Cassius said: "I love you" and there was some sloppy lovemaking on the couch in his office. (not really something to look forward when you wished for some romantice the last 4 books) I hoped that in book 5, I would get to read more about Cassius and Jane, but alas ... there was little of Cassius. He didn't showed up again until the end in Jace's dreams. When Cassius finally did, the ending was a big cliffhanger. Other that I missed Cassius I also missed all the other side-kicks/ sub-characters of the series. There were very few scenes of Gretchen, Anna and Eisfanger. But most of all I missed Jace's ever loyal and funny golem Charlie, who pulled me through this series. :) It was just all about Jace and her case and the evil villians. To Bad.. Check out the review of the whole series on paranormal cravings! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anna | 1/6/2014

    " Took me a few days to read this book, it never seemed to hold my attention for long. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 1/3/2014

    " Took a few months to read, not because of content or interest in the book, just me being a lazy reader for a time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 12/20/2013

    " enjoyed the book as much as the others. Really looking forward to the next. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 11/30/2013

    " I like the ideas behind these books, but they are such a mish mash of mythology and magic that I lose interest and have to convince myself to finish. The series started well, but I found the last couple uneven and inconsistent. Uncertain if I will bother with future books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brianna | 9/9/2013

    " pretty good. a real cliffhanget at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 7/10/2013

    " It was a ride but I took so long to read it, that I'm afraid yhat i am losing interest in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Minh | 6/13/2013

    " With all the pires, thropes and lems running around, it's just plain fun to see Jace catching up with her old nemesis Stoker. Throw in a bit of Japanese mythology and finally answer the question about where on earth the bullets are coming from and you've got an adventure. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Snow Wolf | 3/25/2013

    " The final chapter, in this case the epilogue, is a trap. There's enough of a plot hook that I want to read the next book. Great series, in my opinion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julia | 12/27/2012

    " One of the best Bloodhound Files books yet, Jace and Charlie are at the top of their game. Though the plot does get very esoteric near the end, it was not nearly as impenetrable as prior mysteries (time-travel, etc.). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie Johnson | 10/25/2012

    " This is a really good series and I can't wait to find out what trouble Jace and Charlie get into next. "
