Darker Days by Jus Accardo
(The Darker Agency, #1)
Release Date: August 26, 2013
Publisher: Entangled; 332 pages
Jessie Darker goes to high school during the day, but at night she helps with the family investigation business. Cheating husbands and stolen inheritances? They’re your girls—but their specialty is a bit darker. Zombie in your garage? Pesky Poltergeist living in your pool? They’ll have the problem solved in a magical minute. For a nominal fee, of course...
When gorgeous new client, Lukas Scott, saunters into the office requesting their help to find a stolen box, it sounds like a simple case—until the truth comes out. The box is full of Sin.
Seven deadly ones, in fact.
They’ve got five days to recapture the Sins before they're recalled by the box, taking seven hijacked human bodies with them. Easy peasy—except for one thing...
There’s a spell that will allow the Sins to remain free, causing chaos forever. When the key ingredient threatens the life of someone she knows, Jessie must make the ultimate choice between love and family—or lose everything.

Jessie Darker's Top 4 Most (UN)Wanted Trap and Slaps
1. Witches. Technically not Otherworlders, witches can still go rogue. All that power kind of gives them a superiority complex, and when you're walking around with enough juice to turn the nosey neighbor next door into a field mouse, things sometimes get out of hand. My best friend is a witch. Last year we ended up in detention which, of course, was my fault. Her mother said if it happened again, she'd turn me into a rat. She's not kidding.
2. Kelpies. You like horses? Good for you. Me? Not so much. Kelpies are demon horses that live beneath the water. What do they snack on, you ask? People. Plus, they have major attitude issues. We have one locally. Sid. He lives in Dobbs Park Lake. Other than being a mean little bastard, he's liar. He keeps trying to convince us he's related to King Triton…
3. Possessions. Anything can be possessed. People, plants(I'm not kidding), toys… You think your freaky clown fear is bad? What would you do if Thomas the Train tried to gnaw your leg off?
4. Zombies. The final, and as far as I'm concerned, worst trap and slap out there. While these aren't your skin-hanging, gore-decorated Walking Dead types, they are creeptastic. I can't tell you what it is about them that tweaks me. The freaky stare-right-through-you eyes. The smell. The way they gurgle and sputter like a clogged drain… *shudder* No thanks.
