BOOK REVIEW: "Hotter Than Helltown (Preternatural Affairs #3)" by SM Reine
A killer is mutilating bodies in Los Angeles. Agent Cèsar Hawke is on the case, but the murderer is ahead of him – way ahead of him.
Wiping the memories of the dead so that the team’s resident necrocognitive can’t talk to them? Done. Preventing magical reconstruction of crime scenes? Oh yeah. And the murders keep getting worse while Cèsar struggles to catch up.
The best way to heat up a cold case is to go to Helltown, where LA’s most powerful evil hides out, but even those demons are afraid of the murderer. Their fear adds one more question to the growing pile of unknowns:
What kind of bad guy is too hot for Helltown?
In the third book in SM Reine's Preternatural Affairs series, Cèsar is given some of his toughest challenges yet.
In a gruesome case that leaves handsome blonde men mutilated and sends him into Helltown, he's got enough on his plate, but he also needs to do his binding ceremony to become Director Frtiz Friederling's aspis. If he fails, the company head will personally execute him.
Cèsar is as snarky as ever, and even better as he realizes that he has more potential than anyone, even himself, gives him credit for. His partner, Suzy, is spunky and adorable. She's by far my favorite character by now.
The necrocog, Isobel, is back again, and looks like she's here to stay, when I had thought she'd be gone by now when I read the first book in the series.
I love how Ms. Reine added in a crime mystery to her paranormal fare in this series. With the end of The Ascension Series looming upon us, this promises to fill the void of losing Elise and James!
