Book Review

by John Meaney

Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Urban Fantasy

RT Rating

Meaney explores dark urban fantasy in a police procedural. Although some background elements appear poorly thought out, and the romance plot borders on cliche, the story is fast moving and filled with action. Fans of the BBC series Torchwood should enjoy this otherworldly story.

Police officer Donal Riordan is assigned to protect diva daLivnova from would-be assassins. What might have been a simple case of a demented stalker turns out to be far darker than that. Riordan is drawn into the world of high-level occult investigations, struggling to bring to justice
criminals who have connections to
the highest offices.

His job is complicated when he
falls in love with Commander Laura Steel, the undead officer in charge
of Riordan's new unit, and by his
fellow policemen's suspicion that Riordan might be an unwitting mole
for the other side. (Bantam Spectra, Mar.,
