Restoration by Angela Slatter
Trade Paperback – Quercus – Sep 2020 – 389 pages
Verity Fassbinder thought no boss could be worse than her perfectionist ex-boyfriend – until she agreed to work for a fallen angel. The angel is a jealous – and violent – employer, so she’s quit working for the Weyrd Council and sent her family away.
The angel has tasked V with finding two lost treasures. That would be hard even without a vengeful Dusana Nadasy on her heels. And Inspector McIntyre won’t stop calling: the bodies of Normal women who disappeared decades ago are turning up, apparently subjected to Weyrd magics. Angelic demands or not, this isn’t something V can walk away from.
And the angel is getting impatient for results . . .
