This one starts with a murder out in a corn field. A girl wanting to know why and a murderer who doesn't care.
Sara and Dagger are together at last. The sex is great and Dagger has been doing some home improvements for Einstein his parrot. He and Sara are together and that's all Dagger cares about.
His friend and mailman Simon stops by to make sure Dagger and Sara got the invite to he and his wife Eunie's anniversary party. He and Eunie will be on a two week cruise to the Hawiian islands and out of touch for that two weeks. Dagger and Sara gift him with a suite for his cruise. A gift to two very good friends.
Simon advises Dagger that he spoke with Skizzy, another of Daggers friends.
Skizzy advised him the BettaTec satellite was moving.
BettaTec was a shadow corporation Dagger used to work for. During his last case he was instrumental in stealing laser weapons out of the hands of the wrong people. Dagger noticed on a monitor he kept in his vault that one of the two satellites BettaTec controlled changed it trajectory. It was now in a path directly over Cedar Point, Indiana which is where Dagger and Sara live. Dagger had no doubt they were searching for whoever interrupted a multi-billion dollar sale.
Sheila Monroe, Dagger ex, is at Logan's Galleria located in a renovated strip mall. Monroe is a reporter and works for her extremely wealthy Father. She's still wearing Daggers engagement ring and is sure he will come back to her.
Dagger never would have married Sheila. She's a self important bitch who thinks of no one but herself. He's never been able to convince her of his lack of interest in her though. Now that he has Sara in his life Sheila runs a very poor last.
Once inside Logan's galleria she meets Carlton Abrams a cadaverous looking man who manages the Galleria. The art gallery has been located in San Francisco and then in Chicago. The manager convinced the owner Mark Logan to move the gallery to Cedar Point.
Abrams advises Monroe that there will be a grand opening and the Logan has a new talent. All of his paintings are in a special room and it will cost those wishing to see them a thousand dollars. Monroe decides she will be coming back.
Sergeant Jerry Martinez, called Padre by one and all, is a police officer with Cedar Point. His boss is Chief John Wozniak. Both Padre and the Chief know all about Sara and Dagger and have helped them on the weird cases they work on.
Padre gets a call from Doc Jamison, the Medical Examiner, asking him to stop by.
Once at Doc's he is shown a body the victim of a hit and run. Doc advises Padre the dead man had no wallet, no money and no I.D. They processed the prints but the lab didn't come up with a hit.
Doc tells him witnesses saw a van, navy blue, brown or maroon. No one saw a driver or a license plate. The dead man is between thirty and thirty five years old and whoever hit him wanted him dead. The man had a knife knows as a karambit in his hand and Doc assumes he had a victim in mind for his knife. He never got the chance to use it though.
The man also had a computer chip in his head and its not a clone with a bomb as was the case in one of Padre's previous cases. Doc tells him this one seems to be a tracker of some sort. The man also has a card. A business card for Dagger Investigations.
So begins another great Dagger read.
This one has Dagger, Sara, Padre, Einstein, Sheila, Casey who owns the bar that Daggers apartment sits above, the robot Connie, Mother, a Mother who has blackmailed Dagger into helping her organization, a Mother who has footage of Sara shifting into a grey hawk, the folks Dagger used to work for, the mysterious painter, Daggers redecorated office full of high end everything done by Mother, a Casey who's far more than he appears to be, Mother wanting Sara's blood, Jonathan Keyes known as Father and Director of BettaTec, A Father who has his own agenda and making money and assassination are a big part of it, a Father who thinks he has an enemy in Cedar Point, a killer looking for more victims, a killer who's bloodline is know to both Sara and Dagger, the mysterious Mark Logan, the paintings provided by his reclusive artist, murder, attempted murder and Dagger and Sara dong their best to solve the crime, avoid dying and save the day.
The curse of the Addisons lives on only it’s not quite in the manner you would expect, and our bad guy is trying to find Sara; the only other shapeshifter known to exist. The stakes are much bigger this time. Paul is dead; they know that. But somehow this guy knows every little detail about the murders Paul committed. The next full moon on a Friday the 13th is only weeks away, so the regulars, along with BettaTek now that they’re forcing Chase to work with them, are trying to figure out who this guy is and what his connection is to the Addisons to stop him before that day.
The mystery and how they go about tracking down leads is, as always, interesting, as is the larger integration of BettaTek into the ongoing storyline. But what really grabs me the most are the characters. I love both Sara and Chase and boy has she developed a backbone. Skizzy’s quirks and fears add some light comic relief, as does of course, Einstein, their incredibly smart macaw. And it surprises me that I actually felt sorry for Sheila at one point; but don’t worry, it doesn’t last long.
The back story keeps growing into something larger, helping to prevent the series from becoming stale.
