Publisher's Summary

Former private investigator Cèsar Hawke has one rule: He doesn't deal with dead bodies. That's why he enlisted with the Magical Violations Department in the Office of Preternatural Affairs. He's happy tracking down witches that commit petty crimes, but he leaves the homicides to other agents.

Except that he's been assigned to a new team-a team that handles special investigations-and the job has suddenly changed. Now Cèsar has to deal with dead bodies. He also has to deal with necromancers, murderous cults, and demons that can stop a man's heart with fear.

This isn't the job he signed up for, but it's the job he needs to do.

If he survives the first week.

Very Imaginative, Filled With Action & Adventure

Enjoyed the action and adventure. Twists and turns keep your attention. You'll have to stay focused to keep up! Looking forward to the next book in the series.

Something I feel good about recommending.

Any additional comments?

It's rare that I find a book that's easy and entertaining and something I want to continue.

Along the same lines as Witch Hunt, but I think Mr. Hunt, the protagonist is picking up a little more with each experience. His character is growing, a tiny bit at a time.

I do think it would be a touch more interesting if we hear a little more input from the female characters.

And I do agree with another reviewer: put this in a visually stimulating, special effect tv show/movie and it would rock.

But so did Dresden Files and that didn't last long. Too bad we masses with vastly different tastes have to rely on the few who control what gets made into video and probably do not have enough time to relax with a good book.
