Okay, I must have been living under a rock because I just found out about this book and now I desperately want to read it:


He’s a fallen angel. She’s a rockabilly reporter. Together they must solve a deadly string of murders plaguing the mortal and the immortal worlds. 

Griffin Shaw used to be a PI, but that was over fifty years ago when gumshoes hoofed the streets . . . and he was still alive. Now he’s a Centurion, an angel who assists other murdered souls through their journey to the afterlife. But while Shaw might be an angel … he’s no saint. Haunted by the mysterious events surrounding his own death, he seizes a chance to wreak some vengeance when he witnesses a deadly attack on journalist Katherine “Kit” Craig. 

Joining forces, the unlikely avengers take to the streets, hunting a killer whose trail of bodies stretches across Las Vegas and into an immortal netherworld. It is a dangerous trek that lead them into the darkest corners of Sin City and into the heart of an evil conspiracy extending beyond the lights of the Strip that could destory them both. 

But destruction isn’t the only threat Griffin faces. The closer he gets to Kit, the more he finds himself bewitched by her mortal charms. Can he resist falling under her spell? And does he want to?

I don’t know about you, but I think this sounds really interesting and I love the fact that the mystery seems to play a big part of the story.  And the cover is beautiful.  I.  MUST.  READ.  THIS.

What new release are you waiting for?

Happy Reading!

    What a wonderful choice! I’ve never heard of this novel before but I loved reading the synopsis. I’m heading over to GR to add it to my wishlist now 🙂

    Wow. I’ve never even heard of this one! I read a few of her zodiac books but I was reading about a book a day then and I absolutely forget them. I’d need to start over if I wanted to continue. It sounds like a pretty cool concept, though. I always like when the reporters work with the police–I can say that I’ve never read a book about a person who used to be a PI fifty years before but now is a fallen angel lol. I kind of love that cover:)
