Cesar Hawke an agent with the Office of Preternatural Affairs has a new case. What a way to start a Saturday. Then he gets to spend time with agent Suzy Takeuchi, who's sassy, mouthy, and one of the guys. Can it get any better than this? After getting in trouble with the OPA, Cesar needs to take his aspis approval test to get out of trouble. How can he possible study when people are turning up dead. Now they have bodies showing up missing body parts, eyes here, a nose there and always missing a heart. He doesn't mind chasing down bad witches or demons going bad, but he doesn't do the blood and guts well.
This book is part of the Preternatural Affairs series. They are standalone reads or can be read as a series. Cesar is funny. He is whiny, thinks he is a bad witch and gets sick at the sight of blood. Suzy is rough and tumble, and loves giving Cesar a hard time, pretty much about anything. The story moves along at a good pace and the action keeps you turning pages. The main story is about the case and how they solve it. The secondary story is Cesar learning that he is a better witch than he gives himself credit for. A wonderful read for lovers of paranormal and mystery.
