“Pale as Death” features gore, graveyards and ghosts, and the Black Dahlia storyline is intricately plotted and cunningly populated with red herrings. Happily, the author evades de rigueur insta-love, instead substituting sexual attraction, a fast romance and sex scenes.
I like to empathize with strong, intelligent heroines, but I was ambivalent about Detective Sophie Manning because she is illogically stubborn. Example: returning home after a break-in—before safety measures are put in place. She is obsessed with the case, and goes rogue to enter a private cemetery. Later, she must be talked out of another break-in by her PI boyfriend. He also talks her out of at least two illogical and mindless TSTL moments.
There’s infobesity about LA historical sites, plus the added bonus of a play set in Tudor England, which loosed gobs of historical information. I enjoy history and culture, but less is more in police procedurals. For example, information about LA graveyards and earthquakes are relevant, but not so the info about Lady Jane and Bloody Mary.
To the otherwise wonderful editors: At the 97% mark, there’s a Grace-Sophie mixup. “Best we can put it together, Sophie met Thompson when her mother was at the morgue.” Grace’s mother was in the morgue.
I love the Krewe of Hunters Series. I am especially fond of the paranormal aspect of the series. I am so glad I read this book because it is back to the Heather Graham writing I like. I personally like the books she writes by herself. Some of the other novels where she and another author collaborate on a story, just aren't the same for me.
I really liked the mystery and suspense of this story. I love Sophie and Bruce. Their relationship was sort of Lust-at-first-sight, but develops into more. It kept my interest through the whole story.
I think you will enjoy this book very much.
