Publisher's Summary

What happens when exquisitely beautiful elves start getting all the roles in Hollywood? Human actors sue, that's what. In a desperate attempt to keep the squabbling inside the Screen Actors Guild from going public, the president of SAG forces the two sides into arbitration. Enter Linnet Ellery, a human lawyer working for a vampire law firm, to serve as arbitrator.

Linnet discovers that there are sinister forces at work in Tinsel Town, determined to shatter the fragile peace between elves, vampires, werewolves, and humans. Someone has been coercing famous elven actors into committing sudden and terrible acts of violence against humans in a series of tragedies that could turn the tide of public opinion against all the supernatural Powers. During the course of her investigations, Linnet realizes that a puzzling secret surrounds her, and that a strange power has been affecting the very course of her life.

Frightening & Fun

Love the narrator.
Story is great!
It's a fun mystery, adventure, who dun it type, like the first book.
You'll enjoy this if you liked the first one (This Case is gonna Kill Me).

A thrilling follow-up

I was so happy to have found this series! It has a unique twist on the Urban Fantasy trope, but definitely not boring. Yes, it had a bit more legalese than what I’m used to but it was interesting.
Good plot development and amazing characters.
The narrator was really good, too!

Liked the book more than I thought I would

A little slow in places but overall really enjoyable. Narrator was a little unnatural--quite a bit of affectation in her voice. Looking forward to the next one.

Terrific, even better than the first.

This is the second book in the series, we find Linnet in Hollywood co-chairing an arbitration, with her vampire boss David - the dispute? do the Alfar (elves) have more of an advantage when going for acting parts within the film industry. Add that some Alfar appear to be going on a killing spree, things in tinsel town are tense.
What I love about this series is that it is not one dimensional, it has layers and I like layers, her inner dialogue, quick thinking and observations had me both chuckling and just wanting more. I especially liked the working relationship with David, although not always comfortable you actually see the rapport and respect growing.
PB does not romanticise the 'Powers' , what a refreshing change! you see their mistakes, vulnerabilities and flaws, with mini plots going on around the main drama, I was not bored.
Add an excellent plot, this is no run of the mill fantasy. I have given 5 stars because of how much I enjoyed the story and varied characters any niggles where washed away.. It real helped me escape for a few hours, great entertainment and narration. Now hurry up PB and bring out the next one..

I would start with 'This Case is Gonna Kill Me' which is the first in the series, which starts off with Linnets first case.
