From back of book: The Midwestern resort town of Pemkowet boasts a diverse population--human and otherworldly, resided over by Hel, a reclusive Norse goddess. As Hel's enforcer and designated liaison to the local police department, it's up to half-human Daisy Johanssen to ensure relations between the mundane and eldritch communities run smoothly.
So when a young man from a nearby college drowns, and signs point to eldritch involvement, it's up to Daisy to solve the crime, while keeping a tight rein on the darker side of the town--and her own nature. For if she's ever tempted to invoke her demonic birthright, it could accidentally unleash nothing less than Armageddon.
