In Curse the Dark by Laura Anne Gilman (second in The Retrievers series), Wren Valere's game plan takes an unexpected direction.

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.
