Uncorrected Proof Copy: One of the most successful and bankable names in the world of fiction she may be, but in over ten years of doing this column, this is first time I've listed anything by Janet Evanovitch! It's therefore great to be able to list Wicked Appetite, the author's latest novel and one which sees her straying very much into Urban Fantasy territory - I wonder if she'll stick around? Published this month in hardcover by Headline.
"Life is pleasantly predictable for Lizzy, until a tall, black-haired, dark eyed man shows up, touches her hand and leaves a burn mark. His name is Gerwulf Grimoire, also known as Wulf. And he wants what Lizzy has: knowledge. Almost simultaneously comes another man, a different man, but this one just as dangerous. His name is Diesel. And he wants several things Lizzy has, only one of them being knowledge.
Unbeknownst to Lizzy, she has the ability to find 'empowered objects'. A collection of stones that represent the seven deadly sins have made their way to Marblehead. If the stones are grouped together, they have the power to unleash hell on earth. Wulf wants them. Diesel wants to stop him. And Lizzy is the key to all of it.
Can Lizzy stay one step ahead of two men who both want her...both body and soul? "
