DANCING WITH WEREWOLVES
Award-winning Douglas turns
her hand to the urban fantasy
genre, creating a savvy and highly inquisitive new heroine. This first-person narrative follows Delilah Street's journey into a creepy and dangerous new world, where telling friend from foe is not so easy. A wild new ride!
The turn of the millennium brought the revelation of nonhuman others living in the population. Paranormal crime reporter Delilah Street is driven out of Kansas by a nasty weather witch. Del heads toward Las Vegas to the headquarters of Nightwine Productions to find out the identity of her onscreen doppelganger, who was used in a CSI television shot. By chance Del hooks up with ex-FBI agent and corpse-finder Ric Montoya, and discovers that their unique abilities complement each other. Discovering the identity of a long-dead pair of corpses becomes Del's new cause and it takes her deep into an old Vegas war between the vampires and the werewolves. Del is not easily intimidated, which is a good thing, because events are about to turn very nasty. (JUNO, Oct., 304 pp., $6.99)
