Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Linnet Ellery, a human lawyer in a world run by supernatural beings (collectively called the Powers), leaves New York for Hollywood in this sequel to This Case is Gonna Kill Me (2012). The Alfar (elves) have taken over the movie business, where their beauty and charisma hold such sway that human actors, unable to land starring roles, are suing for recompense. Linnet and senior attorney (and vampire) David Sullivan are acting as arbitrators between the humans and Alfar. As the hearings begin, a famous Alfar actor murders his human wife, and another opens fire on a movie set. When both claim to have no memories of the event, Linnet suspects that someone is controlling them, trying to sour public opinion of the Powers. Linnet switches on a dime from intelligently debating employment law and civil rights to performing acts of gutsy action-movie heroism, and David is further developed as a powerful ally. With minimal but intriguing progress on the source of Linnet’s preternatural luck and the outcome of her case to free her Alfar lover, the third book promises more answers. --Krista Hutley

Review

“John Grisham meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer.... A fast, fun, furious read.” ―M. L. N. Hanover, author of The Black Sun's Daughter on This Case is Gonna Kill Me

“A fresh take on both urban fantasy and the classic legal thriller. An intelligent, gripping debut!” ―Jaye Wells, author of the Sabina Kane series on This Case is Gonna Kill Me

“Fresh and exciting... A great new voice in urban fantasy.” ―Cathy Clamp, USA Today bestselling author

“Strong storytelling, appealing characters, and an intriguing setting make this urban fantasy series opener likely to have great appeal to the genre's many fans.” ―Library Journal (Starred Review; Debut of the Month for August 2012) on This Case is Gonna Kill Me
