Title: Witch Hunt
Series: Preternatural Affairs #1
Author: SM Reine
Genre: Paranormal Suspense
“A brutal murder.
There are scratches on Cèsar Hawke’s arms, a discharged Glock on his coffee table, and a dead woman in his bathtub. Yeah, maybe he brought the waitress home for some fun — he was too drunk to remember it — but he knows for a fact that he didn’t kill her. He’s an agent with the Office of Preternatural Affairs. He doesn’t hurt people. He saves them.
The cops disagree. Now Cèsar is running.
The search for a shaman.
Isobel Stonecrow speaks with the dead…for the right price. She brings closure to the bereaved and heals broken hearts. But when she resurrects someone for the wrong client, she ends up on the OPA’s most wanted list.
One risky solution.
Tracking down Isobel is the last case assigned to Cèsar before he bolts. If he finds her, he can prove that he didn’t kill that waitress. He can clear his name, get his job back, and bring justice to the victim.
She’s just one witch. Cèsar has bagged a dozen witches before.
How hard can one more be?”
This guy is a supernatural cop who is really buff. He’s framed for murder, he finds this chick, they go to Helltown, then they find out what happened.
- It kept my interest, I guess. I mean, I finished it. I wanted to know what happened.
- I liked the witchy part of it, but it did get a little silly with the strength pellets and whatnot.
- I read it pretty recently, but it’s already fading. It just wasn’t anything special.
- There was a constant oh, I can’t trust this person. Or this person. Or this person. But in the end, everyone was trustworthy, and literally the entire book would have been solved in a single chapter if the guy accused of murder would have just talked to his boss.
- I didn’t care about the main character at all. He was pretty blah.
Would I recommend this book?:
No. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good. It was just bleh. I’d give it a 2.5 out of 5, if I was inclined to ratings. The end left me very unsatisfied.
