His resolve is tested when a flyer for a missing girl—who happens to be a summer witch—begins to haunt him. David believes a spell needs to use him to save her, so he follows the magic’s command and looks into her disappearance. His teenage daughter Emmy resents him for caring so much about a random stranger. But when she uncovers some disturbing evidence close to home, she begins an investigation of her own.
David and Emmy quickly learn that the mystery is not only about a missing girl they barely know, but a deeply personal story that impacts everyone they care about. As their world crumbles, they fear the warning may be true—never mess with summer wizards, because the good guys always win.

Magic is nothing like it seems in children’s books. It’s dark and bloody and sexual - and requires its own semi-mythical branch of the US Federal Government to safeguard citizens against ever-present supernatural threats. Where is Harry Potter when you need him?
Jasmine Farah and Rocco di Angelo - a pair of wet-behind-the-ears recruits of The Department of Magic - get their trial by fire - or, rather, a nightmare gallop through a world of ghosts, spooks, vampires, demons, urhobos, and the minions of South American and Voodoo gods hellbent on destroying all humanity once and for all. And doing so on 4th of July!
Of course, it’s all just a normal day on the job at The Department of Magic - where new employees entering its offices are never seen again, while mysteriously continuing to draw full salaries and benefits, sometimes for decades or even a century after. But why did no one warn them about any of that when they were getting hired?
In a town called Nowhere Colorado, angels and demons battle for salvation, and the cost can - and will be - sky-high!
