Carlos Delacruz is one of the New York Council of the Dead's most unusual agents - an inbetweener, partially resurrected from a death he barely recalls suffering, after a life that’s missing from his memory. He thinks he is one of a kind - until he encounters other entities walking the fine line between life and death. One inbetweener is a sorcerer. He's summoned a horde of implike ngks capable of eliminating spirits, and they’re spreading through the city like a plague.

Widow Libby Stratton arranged to be turned into a vampire after she was diagnosed with late-stage cancer. It wasn't the best idea she'd ever had, but she was desperate - she wasn't about to leave her seven-year-old son to be raised by her rigid, overbearing in-laws.

This book was excellent. Molly Harper & Amanda Ronconi go together like two peas in a pod! Now I'm sad I gotta wait until the next one.

Nicolas Fox is a charming con man and master thief on the run. Kate O'Hare is the FBI agent who is hot on his trail. At least that's what everyone thinks. In reality Fox and O'Hare are secretly working together to bring down super criminals the law can't touch. Criminals like brutal casino magnate Evan Trace.

I love this series. Scott Brick does a great job bringing Nick & Kate to life. While this book felt like the job was a little rushed (almost like listening to an abridged version) I enjoyed every second up until (and including) the cliffhanger. With a cliffhanger like this one, it better not take a year to put out the next Fox and O'Hare book or that would be pure torture!

Jack Fleming was an investigative journalist in Prohibition-era Chicago until he got shot by an unknown assassin, bitten by his vampire girlfriend, and then became one of the undead. Now, this nice-guy nosferatu has a bunch of crazy vampire hunters on his trail, armed with crosses, silver bullets, and sharp wooden stakes. He doesn't know how they found out about him or why they are "out for his blood," but it's not a problem for this street-wise gumshoe, until someone starts shooting.

Any additional comments?

I've wanted to get into P. N. Elrod for awhile since she has been involved with the same various collections of short stories that one of my favorite authors (Jim Butcher!!) contributes to as well. I'm very glad I took the chance and gave this series a listen! Think old style black and white private investigator with a supernatural twist. I don't want to spoil any of the story line but I was so taken in by the main character and his very human side kick that the ending left me hooked NEEDING to find out what happens next. The series continues by another narrator but is just as good. I do wish the books were longer (each is only 6-7 hours in length) but so far well worth the credit.
