In this delectable fantasy romp, a shape-shifting private detective with sexual identity issues hunts a serial killer preying on the Supernatural community.
Who but the indomitable Piers Anthony could write a hard-boiled detective-novel-fantasy-comic thriller featuring demons, succubi, zombies, ghosts, serial murder, gender bending, and a healthy dose of good, clean sex? Anthony's remarkable imagination has taken glorious flight once again with WereWoman - and no one does it quite like Piers Anthony!
The classy dame who walks into fledgling private eye Philemon's office is like Venus in motion and is most definitely a Witch. But dealing with Supernaturals - or "Supes" for short - is Phil's beat, since he himself is a shape-changing Were. And this sexy sorceress is offering him the "friendship of her thighs" to investigate a murder, so how can he possibly refuse? But the Warlock slaying in question turns out to be only the first in a series of homicides, because someone - or something - is picking off Supes like insects. Soon the search begins leading the brand-new dick into places outside the mundane realm - into a Demon amusement park, through the doors of an Incubus-Succuba dating service, and into some very sticky situations where he'll need to undergo a supernatural sex change just to stay alive.

I was a 'readaholic' for most of my life. I started crochet and other hobbies. That took away from my reading time. I discovered audio books at the library. That set me off. now, that I am older my eyes make it too difficult to read. So I now am a very diligent audio book listener!
The story is ok. A young man is an interesting type of were. Society has a variety of supernaturals living peacefully and thriving in it. They are all there; Gnomes, Weres, Vampires, Witches, Ghosts and the rest. Our hero must solve a murder mystery. Someone is killing supernaturals. Some of the story is confusing. It jumps around from present to past and anything in between. It took me some time to figure out that our hero is barely out of his teens. He obtained his PI license on line while still in high school. When he graduated from high school he and a friend were ready to start the business. The plot was ok. There was just enough things happening to keep my interest. The problem was the predictability. I had to re-listen to parts to make sure I understood what was happening. The humor at times was a little stale. Fabio Tassone's voice fit the character well. His narration gave a boost to another wise borderline story. He is why I listened to the entire book.
