A magical-reality take on Tombstone, where Wyatt Earp is a sorcerer who uses his brothers and Doc Holiday to control the town. A lady reporter, a handsome stranger, and mysterious deaths, none of which take place in the OK Corral. Beautifully written by Emma Bull, the story will keep you reading to the end.
I'm very happy that it took me so long to find Stephanie Plum. Now I can zoom through the next ten or so books since they've already been published! This one has the brash, rash Trenton, NJ bounty hunter tangling with undertakers and arms dealers with the help of Grandma Mazur and sexy Joe Morelli.
A Stephanie Plum holiday novel. "It's 5 days before Christmas and things are not looking merry for...Stephanie Plum. Sge hasn't got a tree. She hasn't bought any presents...There's not a twink light anywhere to be seen in her aprtment - and tehre's a strange man in her kitchen." Plum fun, as always!
With this third book in the Inspector Van Veeteren series I am officially hooked. Allowing for a little bit of necessary coincidence and belief-stretching for the sake of the murder mystery, the recurring characters are vibrantly real, flawed people. The ambiance is dark and moody, and the conclusion satisfying.
