This review is from: Memory Zero (Spook Squad) (Paperback)
This is the first in Keri Arthur's thoroughly enjoyable Spook Squad series. Arthur creates a very unique and creative urban fantasy/paranormal world with believable, layered characters. In this book, police officer Sam Ryan is charged with her partner's death. To prove her innocence, she has to team up with Gabriel Stern- a shapeshifter who is also part of a mysterious shadow government. As the book progresses, it becomes clear that Sam has some interesting powers of her own. This book is very well-written. It is fast-paced, but Arthur devotes sufficient time to character development. The chemistry between the two main characters is believable and entertaining. There is a tiny hint of romance here, but nothing more. The focus stays on the action/thriller aspects of the plot. I definitely suggest this book. Its only fault is that it is too short. I was left wanting more, and I wished the book could have been fleshed out a bit. Luckily, there are two more books in this same series available.
