The plot follows our journalist through the ups and downs of his attempts to save himself, and possibly Capital City, from certain doom without having to sacrifice his morals along the way. If the protagonist wasn't a strong enough motivator to keep the reader going, the cast of colorful side characters will certainly do the job. The snappy descriptions continue where I got a solid impression of someone in as little as three well picked sentences. Even the places had personality.
So, if you enjoy a suspenseful pseudo-nior world where virtually everything and everyone comes to life on the page (or screen in this case), take a gander at This Dark Magic.

Her style is akin to masters from a century ago, recalling both Poe and Lovecraft in some instances while proving she has a definite 21st century wit in other places. Events and objects presented appear remarkably similar to those we know, and yet somehow you can 'feel' that the characters and their world reside elsewhere. It's an unsettling sensation, one that few contemporary authors can achieve. Beyond all else, it is this ability to seamlessly merge the familiar with the unnatural that will bring me back to Wymer's work again.
