Retribution Clause, Ilona Andrews - 4.5 Stars This story takes place in the Kate Daniels world, but follows characters we've never met before.

Of course, her evil father shows up (view spoiler) Harry, being Harry, can't let that happen and sets out to save the day. I had one major problem with the premise of this story: (view spoiler)
