About the Book:

Satrine Reiney needs to make twenty crowns a week to support her daughters and invalid husband. With a forged letter and fast thinking, she lies her way into an Inspector position with the Constabulary of her old neighborhood. The catch is she gets partnered with the outcast of the stationhouse, Minox “Jinx” Welling, an eccentric Inspector and an Uncircled-- and thus untrained-- Mage. Their first case together—the ritualized murder of a Circled Mage—brings Satrine back to her old street corner and her childhood nemesis, and forces Minox to confront the politics of Magic that he’s avoided. As more Mages are found dead, Satrine must solve the crime before her secrets catch up with her, and before her partner ends up the next victim.
