Lawyer Linnet Ellery has made a place for herself at a New York 'white fang' law firm that mostly serves the supernatural community. But now she's off to LA to help resolve a labor dispute between human actors and the elves who are taking more and more feature roles. When a prominent elf actor goes on a killing spree, though, Linnet's job gets a lot more complicated...
