Eileen Wilks-- "Mortal Sins" (Lupi series)

FBI agent Lily Yu is in North Carolina with her lover and mate, Rule Turner, Lu Nuncio of the Nokolai werewolf clan. He is there to take custody of his son from the boy's grandmother. It's a purely personal trip until Rule, in wolf form, finds three bodies in a shallow grave. They carry the stench of death magic, which makes the murders a federal crime. Lily takes charge of the investigation and soon realizes that nothing adds up, not the motives or the main suspect, who is behind bars when death strikes again. a more personal shock arrives in the form of Rule's son's mother. Why would she now challenge Rule's plan to bring his son to live among the Nokolai? But family matters must take a backseat when the violence escalates, and there's no rhyme or reason for the next strike, by a killer who may no even be of this world.....

***Will Rule and Lily ever catch a break? I have to admit that i put this book down 3 times before i finished it. It just didn't catch my attention until at least halfway. The appearance of Toby's mother, with her new husband, so she can get custody of Toby and give him a drug to stop him from "changing" was interesting. All the while, a spirit revived by blood magic is killing off innocent citizens of the town. I am becoming bored with this series, but i am not quite ready to give up yet...
