Scattered thoughts: I didn't realize this was a second book and while I normally prefer to jump in cold, I was a bit overwhelmed with the number of characters and story threads going on. There is a sex scene that doesn't fit the tone of the book and really feels like a stopgap measure to make the book fit in more with the Urban Fantasy genre.I think that the main problem with this book, and the reason that I found it in the bin at an "Odd Lot" store, is the cover. The cover is wretched. If I had not already read this author, I would never have picked up the book. The cover screams cheap and confused, which is surprising considering that the publisher is Tor.Donna
Gigi is now a PI. Her friend asks her to help the friends ex husband find his missing wife. The trouble is the ex had physically abused her friend and Gigi isn't certain that the wife didn't vanish to avoid the same treatment and this is further complicated by her finding evidence that the missing wife is an elf. Meanwhile, someone starts a series of increasingly deadly attacks on Gigi.Nina
I really like this series. It is set in Providence and the supernatural element is there but not over the top.Henrik

Not as good as it's made out to be.Barbara
The second in Cunningham's dark urban fantasy series about a PI,Gwen Gellman, who isn't as human as she thought.Now, will Cunningham ever get her pen in gear and finish the series??Marianna
Took me a while to actually finish this once I started, probably because I knew that if it ended with a cliffhanger I would probably never get relief, being that the series is suspended indefinitely.The book is cool, due to the fact that it is set in my birthplace and current residence of Providence, RI (woot woot!). I did enjoy the story and progression better with this installment. The true colors of all the players are peeping out. Too bad we might never get a conclusion to the story.I'd say give the book a try.
