(A book in the Witchblade series)
An omnibus of novels by John DeChancie and John J Miller
Her name is Sara Pezzini. A New York City homicide detective with a deadly secret: A few years ago, she came into possession of the Witchblade, an ancient weapon that has existed for centuries. But the Witchblade is not controlled by anyone-it does the controlling. Talons: A series of brutal murders have been committed, and the trail of bodies seems to lead back to the Russian Mafia. But are the killings gang-related, or the work of a mysterious organization called the Order of the Raven that appears to know all about Sara-and the Witchblade? A Terrible Beauty: In the wake of a rash of killings dubbed the "Machete Murders" by the press, Sara and her partner, Jake McCarthy, find themselves neck-deep in trouble-not just from NYPD brass, but from a voodoo priests, evil spirits, a brother and sister pair of hired killers, and a Goth band called The Mountains of Madness!
