Harry Harry Harry, what an extremely entertaining life you lead. Lash is still hanging around, waiting. Someone is killing witches, someone that looks familiar....and a love is back what's up with that, hmmm ? Thomas stole the show from you Harry, at the end it grabbed it and ran. I loved it Harry ! I'm off to the next adventure. : ) ( )

Harry gets hauled into Whtie Court politics again as he investigates the disappearance and possible murder of small time magical practicioners.
Add to this, the return of an old girl friend and his worry that Thomas might possibly be getting back to his feeding habits, plus the renewed temptations of his fallen angel, Harry, as usual, has his work cut out for him. ( )

Low level magic practitioners disappear or commit suicide. Or so it's supposed to look. Murphy gets suspicious and consults with Harry. As they start digging, the prime suspect turns out to be his brother who's very hard to find. Add in Vampires and other assorted bad guys, and Harry is once again between a rock and a hard place and has to pull in help from all sorts of allies. Full of the usual wisecracks and lots of action, this entry in the series delivers as usual. And I absolutely love Mouse. ( )

This is where it really gets darker and more twisted, peeps. Again, Thomas is on the forefront of the plot, and I love him to bits. Also, Harry playing the role of his scorned lover is hilarious. Thomas, Molly and Harry work as a pretty good team, and you would not be able to catch a break in this book, it's so full of action. Recommended. ( )

Many things are not as they seem: The worst things in life never are.
Many things are not as they seem: The worst things in life never are.
Quotations
. . . age is always advancing and I'm fairly sure it's up to no good.
Bigots see something they expect and then they stop thinking about what is in front of them . . . It's probably how they got to be bigots in the first place.
Everyone is down on pain, because they forget something important about it: Pain is for the living. Only the dead don't feel it.
Life's easier when you can write off others as monsters, as demons, as horrible threats that must be hated and feared. The thing is, you can't do that without becoming them, just a little.
