Publisher's Summary

We’re Supernatural Protection & Investigations, known as SPI. Things that go bump in the night, the monsters you thought didn’t exist? We battle them and keep you safe. But some supernatural baddies are just too big to contain, even for us. When I moved to New York to become a world famous journalist, I never imagined that snagging a job at a seedy tabloid would change my career path from trashy reporter to undercover agent. I’m Makenna Fraser, a Seer for SPI. I can see through any disguise, shield, or spell that a paranormal pest can come up with. I track down creatures and my partner, Ian Byrne, takes them out.Our cases are generally pretty routine, but a sickle-wielding serial killer has been prowling the city’s subway tunnels. And the murderer’s not human. The fiend in question, a descendant of Grendel - yes, that Grendel - shares his ancestor’s hatred of parties, revelry, and drunkards. And with New Year’s Eve in Times Square only two days away, we need to bag him quickly. Because if we don’t find him - and the organization behind him - by midnight, our secret’s out and everyone’s time is up.

Interesting, but not my thing really.

"Not my usual thing," I thought, "but I have a couple of spare credits so I think I'll give it a fair go." So I listened to a type of story I never had before. I was not disappointed.

Production-wise, I thought the tale - very well written by Lisa and narrated by Johanna - flowed beautifully, dragging me along as it ought. The storyline proved interesting and thought-provoking and, at times, humorous.

Having listened all the way through, I have concluded that this kind of story is really not my personal bag. However, it was a refreshing change and I have no regrets in buying it. I am keeping it in my library to read again one day. All-in-all, if you like this genre, you'll enjoy this well-written and well-presented book.

Recommended. Buy it. Try it. Enjoy it.
