Marla Mason, the chief guardian sorceress of the large East Coast city of Felport, has no time to rest on her laurels following her near death experiences with a mercenary psychic assassin (see Poison Sleep). Instead a hunk arrives in town with a deadly retinue that includes the long dead reanimated John Wilkes Booth seething as a support character and an apparently psycho necromancer who believes Marla affronted him by scorning his skills.

From official release/information:

Product Description: As chief sorcerer of Felport, Marla Mason thought she'd faced every kind of evil the magical world had to offer. But she's never faced a killer like this. He's dark, glib, handsome as the devil—and exactly who he says he is. Death—in the flesh. He's arrived in Felport with a posse composed of a half-insane necromancer and the reanimated corpse of John Wilkes Booth, and he isn't leaving until he gets what he came for. Only Marla is crazy enough to tell Death to go back to Hell.

With the Founders' Ball just around the bend, drawing together the brightest, meanest, and most dangerous of Felport's magical elite, the last thing Marla needs is all-out war with the King of the Underworld, but that's exactly what she's got. As the battle lines are drawn, she can count on her hedonistic, body-hopping partner Rondeau…but how many of her old allies will stand by her side when facing the ultimate adversary? To save her city, Marla will have to find a way to cheat Death…literally.
