Magic Strikes [Ilona Andrews]

Magic Strikes -  Ilona Andrews

What is with these books always having Curran show up at the end of the book? I only just now thought of that. We finally learn about Kate's family in this one, I think there have been hints for a while, but now it's told (in Kate's thoughts, not that she tells someone). Kate almost gets killed, as if that's a new thing really. We learn more about Kate's past otherwise as well.
