In Curse the Dark by Laura Anne Gilman (second in The Retrievers series), Wren Valere's game plan takes an unexpected direction. The super-secret, magic-watching outfit know only as "Silence" sends Wren and her partner to Italy in search of an ancient parchment, one with a history of making whoever reads it disappear. When the missing parchment's trail leads them back home, Wren is forced to deal with lonejacks banding together, a jealous demon, magically augmented tracking bugs infesting her home and an unexplainable increase in violence spreading throughout the city.
