First rule in this line of business: don’t sleep with the client.
My name’s Kate Kane, and when an eight-hundred-year-old vampire prince came to me with a case, I should have told her no. But I’ve always been a sucker for a femme fatale.
It always goes the same way. You move too fast, you get in too deep, and before you know it, someone winds up dead. Last time it was my partner. This time it could be me. Yesterday a werewolf was murdered outside the Velvet, the night-time playground of one of the most powerful vampires in England. Now half the monsters in London are at each other’s throats, and the other half are trying to get in my pants. The Witch Queen will protect her own, the wolves are out for vengeance, and the vampires are out for, y’know, blood.
I’ve got a killer on the loose, a war on the horizon, and a scotch on the rocks. It’s going to be an interesting day.
This title is #1 of the Kate Kane, Paranormal Investigator series
This is this first book I read by Alexis Hall and the first with F/F action. I thought the concept was great with a female PI, paranormal creatures like vampires, werewolves and others, but felt it lacked a little bit. I had to keep reminding myself that the main character Kate was female, it seemed the writer wrote more of a masculine character but, I thought she was witty, tough as nails, smart as hell and sexy and she knows the difference between right and wrong. Love the ex part with Patrick ( I liked Patrick) and how she tells is like it is and doesn't take his shit nor wants a repeat of the past ( hes a mistake). Some parts were a little too much almost more complicated then they needed to be and more this is what happened before, but over all I enjoyed the book, very interesting world Hall created, intriguing and mysterious too. Love that in a book. Would like to read more by this author. 4 stars
