"When I was fourteen, a cousin of mine angered a Malignant One." Ellen Pierson's cousin Paul brings his problem and his fear to Ellen, and Ellen turns to famed investigator Alison Birkett for help. For these two novellas, Temporary Agency and Benign Adjustments, Pollack returns to the Living World. In Unquenchable Fire a character says that "there are only two things in the world. Suffering and ecstasy." Here, Pollack explores this theme in a fast-paced, moving story as Ellen, Paul and Alison unwrap first a conspiracy of evil and then one of misguided good.
