       Additional Information  
      Her name is Sara Pezzini. A New York City homicide detective with a deadly secret: A few years ago, she came into the possession of the Witchblade, a mystic weapon of unknown origin that has existed for centuries. Grateful to have first used it when her life was in danger, Sara soon learned the lesson every owner of the device has been taught through the years: The Witchblade is not controlled by anyone?it does the controlling. . . .

    In the wake of a rash of killings dubbed the ?Machete Murders? by the press, the people of New York have been living in fear. Assigned to the high-profile case are Sara Pezzini and her partner, Jake McCarthy, who soon find themselves neck-deep in trouble?not just from NYPD brass, but from voodoo priests, evil spirits, a brother and sister pair of hired killers, and a Goth band called The Mountains of Madness!

    Not exactly a normal homicide investigation, but then Sara is no ordinary cop?not when she?s secretly the possessor of the Witchblade, a mystical weapon that can help her overcome her enemies . . . if it doesn?t turn against her first. . . .
