Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Filled with kisses and kick-ass action, the second installment of this campy series (after 2007's Dances with Werewolves) finds paranormal investigator Delilah Street taking on her first case in an alternate 2010 Las Vegas. When Delilah and her boyfriend, ex-FBI agent Ric Montoya, find the bodies of two teens killed in Sunset Park in 1946, the girl's ghost appears and claims the killer was her father, werewolf mobster Cesar Cicereau. Vampire mogul Howard Hughes hires Delilah to learn the identity of the girl's vampire companion, and she also comes under pressure from albino vampire rocker Snow; television producer Hector Nightwine; and the Invisible Man, a zombie merged with Claude Rains's black-and-white film character. Douglas's dishy style compliments the twisty plot, and she helpfully includes references for the numerous nods to the silver screen, Egyptology and cocktails. (Dec.)

Meet the Author

Carole Nelson Douglas, author of more than fifty fantasy and science fiction, mystery, mainstream, and romance novels, was an award-winning reporter and editor for the St. Paul Pioneer Press. After writing some bestselling high fantasy novels and SF thrillers, she imported fantasy notions into her Midnight Louie mystery series, which features a hard-boiled Las Vegas PI who’s a feline “Sam Spade with hairballs.” Her Irene Adler historical series made Carole the first author to use a woman from the Sherlock Holmes stories as a protagonist in the 1991 New York Times Notable Book of the Year, Good Night, Mr. Holmes. She’s won or been short-listed for more than fifty writing awards in nonfiction, sf/fantasy, mystery, and romance genres, including several from the Romance Writers of America and Romantic Times BOOKreviews magazine, and the Cat Writers’ Association. In 2008, RT BOOKreviews magazine named Carole a “pioneer of the publishing industry. Carole and husband Sam Douglas, a former art museum exhibitions director and kaleidoscope designer, are kept as pets by five stray cats and a dog in Fort Worth, Texas. She collects vintage clothing, and does a mean Marilyn Monroe impersonation, and, yes, she does dance, but not with werewolves. As far as she knows.

I'm stunned and almost wordless. "Brimstone Kiss", Carole Nelson Douglas' 2nd book about Delilah Street is just as good as the first one and only leaves me begging for more.

Delilah is an orphan. She's also got the appearance and coloring that make her vampire bait in the new millenium where all the fairy tale creatures came out of the closet. She recently came to Vegas on the trail of her double; a woman who could be her twin who appeared in a dissection scene on CSI V. In the first book she hooked up with Ric Montoya, a delicious Latino, former FBI agent who earned the nickname the Cadaver Kid for his ability to find dead bodies. What he never publicized was that his ability was actually the talent to call up zombies. The first book ended with Delilah escaping from a power and money hungry werewolf with Ric's help. In this newest book, Delilah is becoming a 'person of interest' to even more of the supes in Vegas. And she's learning alot more than she ever wanted to know about the struggle for power among the varied supernatural groups. When her investigation into an old murder ruffles feathers (or fur), she finds herself neck deep in danger.

If this series sounds interesting, you really need to read the first book "Dancing With Werewolves" before you tackle this one. There's just too much information you'd be missing. Carole Nelson Douglas has penned an intoxicating mixture of fantasy, suspense, mystery, romance, and the paranormal. I want more.
