Abigail Merriweather Gooden isn’t your typical Austin, Texas lawyer. Sure she has the so very chic law offices on West 6th Street and the prominent social status that comes from old Texas money, but she also has magic with a “k.” Abbie, after all, is a witch.

So, it isn’t surprising that the preternatural community sends all its legal matters to her. Such is the case with Jurnik Golub, owner of Exotica, a popular Austin gentlemen’s club. Jurnik is a vampire - - and someone has attempted to frame him for the murder of one of his strippers. All lawyers like innocent clients - - and Jurnik is definitely innocent, being that he was sleeping the sleep of the undead during the time of the murder.

Abbie along with Lucan Knight, the shape-shifter private detective Jurnik has hired, must race to find “whodunnit” before the Austin Police haul Jurnik in - - and he becomes a crispy client.
