Image of Night Life (Nocturne City, Book 1)

Life and crime through the eyes of a detective running on grit and nerve give Kittredge's new urban fantasy thriller a dark and cutting edge. The existence of the supernatural within the human population keeps both sides wary and bigoted. This new series oozes with seamy desperation.

Being a detective in Nocturne City is a tough job, and by being female and a werewolf, Luna Wilder has two big strikes against her. The brutal mutilation and murder of a prostitute involves Luna in a case that may get her both fired and killed.

When she discovers the D.A.'s son at the scene of a second killing, she sets off a political firestorm. Despite being suspended, Luna won't let the case go, because she knows that dark magic is playing a major role. Alpha were Dmitri Sandovsky is connected to both of the dead women, and he's out for revenge. Joining forces may not be procedure, but Luna has little choice. (ST. MARTIN'S, Mar., 329 pp., $6.99)
