* *   Reviewed by Bob Walch

This seventh installment in the Kitty Norville series of fantasy novels featuring the celebrity werewolf/DJ is reminiscent of Agatha Christie's mystery classic And Then There were None (Ten Little Indians).

Kitty and a number of other supernatural personages are invited to participate in a reality TV show being taped at a remote, isolated lodge. Although she has misgivings, Kitty agrees to go. But when the filming crew mysteriously disappears and the vampires, psychics and lycanthropes find themselves abandoned in a building with the phone dead and the electricity cut off, Kitty knows there's going to be trouble.

As in the Christie novel, someone starts eliminating the housemates and the terrified survivors begin bickering among themselves as they realize this is a slice of reality they want no part of.

If she expects to get home to her husband and pack, Kitty will have to figure out who has hatched this nefarious plot to get rid of her companions. With the body count mounting and, correspondingly, the suspect list ebbing, this would seem to be an easy task. The only trick is that Kitty will have to stay alive long enough to complete it!
