Cold-blooded kidnappers. Long-lost magic. When things get serious, she goes full Sherlock.
Ashira Cohen takes pride in being the only female private investigator in Vancouver. With her skills, her missing persons case should be a piece of cake.
She wasn’t counting on getting bashed in the skull, revealing a hidden tattoo and supernatural powers she shouldn’t possess.
Or the bitter icing on top: a spree of abductions and terrifying ghostly creatures on a deadly bender.
And don’t even get her started on the golems.
Reluctantly partnered with her long-time nemesis Levi, the infuriating leader of the magic community, Ash resolves to keep her focus on the clue trail and off their sexual tension because WTF is up with that?
But with a mastermind organization pulling strings from the shadows and Levi’s arrogance driving her to pick out his body bag, can Ash rescue the captives and uncover the truth or will the next blood spilled be her own?
Blood & Ash is the epic first novel in The Jezebel Files. If you like headstrong heroines, complex mysteries, and a dash of red-hot romance, you’ll love Deborah Wilde’s kickass urban fantasy.

A Note From the Publisher
paperback ISBN: 978-1-988681-35-1
"Wilde (the Unlikeable Demon Hunter series) combines hardboiled noir and Jewish folklore in this action-packed, perfectly paced paranormal romp. A centuries-old botched Kabbalah ritual created the magic users, or Nefesh, that pervade mundane private investigator Ashira Cohen’s alternate present-day Vancouver. Ash discovers a Star of David tattooed on her scalp and realizes it’s a ward meant to suppress the dormant blood magic she never knew she had. When she breaks the ward, her newfound abilities allow her to perceive a vicious, undiscovered shadow magic that no one else can see, not even the other Nefesh. Levi Montefiore, Ash’s childhood rival turned leader of Nefesh regulatory body House Pacifica, hires Ash to track those shadows down. Soon that case converges with one she’s working for a teenage client hoping to track down her missing refugee girlfriend. Golems, Nefesh politics, a dangerous plot to sell magic, and Ash’s attraction to Levi add spice, but the real star is Ash’s hilariously snarky narrative voice, which is archly sarcastic but never mean. Wilde balances exuberant wit with deep compassion and handles Ash’s chronic pain and fragmented family with care. This giddy, sexy series launch is a delight."
