Publisher's Summary

Discredited journalist Ella Jerome isn't thrilled about working at Adelaide's fanciful tabloid the Informer. So when zoologist Adam Lowell seeks her help in finding his missing cousin, she's cynical of his claim a monster lurks near the Church of the Resurrection. The trouble is, solving the gruesome case could be her best shot at restoring her reputation. With her old instincts resurfacing, Ella combs the port for clues. Experience tells her the only monsters are the human variety, and the bloodied stonemason certainly raises her suspicions. But when her investigation turns up everything from petrified remains to the headless carving of a dragon, the truth threatens to steal both her sanity and the man she's falling for. After all, gargoyles can't be anything other than harmless stone. Or can they?

    "Adequate"

    Solid story, although I'm not a fan of love-triangles. Storyline was good, characters good. The narrator overplayed the villain. The big problem for me was that the author seems to have a high-school freshman's understanding of the English language. Words were often used incorrectly--things like a character hiding "among" a crowd. A crowd is singular. You can hide in a crowd but not among a crowd. It's close, but it's wrong.
    If that kind of thing doesn't work your last nerve, you will like the story fine.
