Luther Cross here. Dangerously handsome, effortlessly stylish half-demon, at your service. As I have inherited certain...abilities with my odd genetics, I’ve put them to use as Chicago’s foremost paranormal investigator.

My current case? Well, I have to admit, it feels a little personal. I’m helping a mysterious girl who’s turned up on my doorstep, pregnant through mystic means. I can’t help but think of my own mother…and if I don’t help her, she’ll face the same fate.

Turns out, someone is trying to create an army of half-demons. While it might be a pleasant change to hang out with my own kind, I know most half-demons don’t have my sense of morality. If I don’t stop this evil plan, the armistice between Heaven and Hell will be broken and all of the Earth will pay… It will be the beginning of the end.

Well, a PI with a difference… especially as he is half-demon and his lover is a vampire… who knew? And yes, Holy Water, blessed by a priest does harm demons and nasties..

My first introduction to this series and I started with the first book and found it a fun read with some nice snark and a different type of PI considering I have just read Mary Wiles #1 where we have an angel doing a similar job.

I like the style and pace of this this writer and found him clear and good at ensuring we knew enough back story without over-whelming us so we understood what was going on. Loved the idea of there being roof-top bars that we humans don’t get entry to. Unless…

And nice for it to set in Chicago for a change. I’ve always heard rumours that Chicago is a dangerous place to visit. And with all these paranormals living there, I now know why!
