San Francisco after dark can be full of unusual sights, but the last thing Ana Khoury expects to stumble across is black-garbed figures carrying a body. Her call to 911 is interrupted by a blow to the head, plunging her into nothingness.

At first it appears they have escaped dark magic unscathed. At first…

Nothing was predictable; the end was not telegraphed.
