A solid sophomore effort, this book pulls readers back into Evie Scelan's Boston, a city that is as much a character in the series as Evie or Nate. Evie, with her ability to track things by scent with frightening accuracy due to a mystical connection with an Irish legend, continues to be interesting and sympathetic. The plot is a bit loose, and in the end the threads of the story aren't as neatly woven as they could be, but this is still a corker of a tale that readers will enjoy.
Additionally, Evie has a couple of clients who seem to be mysteriously linked, her friend Nate has a supernatural issue of his own, and she's compelled to run with the Wild Hunt that's been summoned to the city. (EOS, Jan., 320 pp., $7.99)
