In this fast-paced hard-boiled urban fantasy, Harry is hired by a women to find her missing husband; on the same day he is contacted by Chicago PD to solve a grisly double homicide with paranormal undertones. Harry is a well-developed, snarky, and irreverent character. We are introduced to large cast of secondary characters; many of whom I’m sure will show up again in the series. My favorites was Chicago PD Detective Karrin Murphy. She heads up the “Special Crimes Unit” and has Harry on retainer. She’s a strong female character and is a good contrast to Harry, who can be chauvinistic at times. This series will appeal to fans of noir or detective fiction as well as readers of fantasy.
