Publisher's Summary

Tori Karacis’s family line may trace back to a drunken liaison between the god Pan and one of the immortal gorgons. Or...maybe it’s just coincidence that her glance can, literally, stop men in their tracks. While her fear of heights kept her out of the family aerobatic troupe, her extreme nosiness fits right in with her uncle’s P.I. business.

Except he’s disappeared on an Odyssean journey to find himself. Muddling through on her own, she’s reduced to hunting (not stalking, because that would just be weird) brass-bra’d Hollywood agent Circe Holland to deliver a message...only to witness her murder by what looks like the Creature from the Black Lagoon.

Suddenly, all of her family’s tall tales seem believable, especially when Apollo - the Apollo, who’s now hiding out among humans as an adult film star - appears in her office, looking to hire her. She knows the drill: Canoodling with gods never works out well for humans, but she’s irresistibly drawn to him. Maybe it’s her genes. Maybe not.

Given her conflicted feelings for one hot and hardened cop, it’s a toss-up which will kill her quickest. The danger at her door...or her love life.

Percy Jackson meets Veronica Mars

If you are a Percy Jackson or Veronica Mars fan you will love Tori Karacis and her fast paced adventures investigating the gods business ie: murder and mayhem in LA. This book is fast paced, witty and snarky, both. It lends itself well to the audio format. Highly recommend if you’re looking for something engaging and fun.

Interesting Urban Fantasy

I really enjoyed the story twist to the Greek gods and goddesses and what their lives are now during these modern times. The narrator did a nice job too. I look forward to checking out the rest of the series. This audio book was received free from the publisher/author for a voluntary review.

Bad Blood by Lucienne Diver

Bad Blood by Lucienne Diver
Updated 2nd read by audiobook.
The Greek Gods walk among the Hollywood rich and famous.
Toni Karacis is a PI drawn into a war between the Gods when she witnesses the murder of one of them. Suddenly all the stories she's heard from her grandmother are taking on a life of their own and those gods are interfering and threatening her own life.

Entertaining writing style with humor and rich language. Quite a list of characters from the Greek myths, many of which I didn't know. I don't think I missed anything but the humor may have been higher if my history of these gods wasn't lacking.
First in a series. I will be buying and reading the next to see what happens with this PI and her world.

Excerpt:
"I couldn't help myself. "You're just in time. Detective Armani was about to break out the rubber hoses."
Lau finally deigned to look my way, but couldn't be moved to put on an expression, let alone respond. Damn, I wanted to rattle her cage. This whole more stoic than thou thing-- and hello, I wasn't even in competition-- freaked me out. Of course, that might've been why she did it.
Armani gave me a quelling look, but I'd had years of Yiayia's evil eye to draw on. I was nigh unquellable."
Excerpt from Bad Blood by Lucienne Diver

I won this book in a contest at a readers conference.

🎧 I listened to this book for the second time for a bookclub and author chat. The audiobook was narrated by Courtney Holly who did a wonderful job with the dry wit and exasperation of Toni. The performance made the story compelling and engaging and almost as if I could turn on the TV and see one of these famous Gods as a Hollywood actor. I listened at 1.2. I could have sped it up a bit but was immersed enough that I didn’t even think about the speed until after I was done.
