What a terrific series--suspense, witches, demons, vampires, werewolves and more. There is no romance crap to screw it up just pure urban fantasy at its best. You can't go wrong with this series. His other series is just as good as well. He is definitely on my must read list. I am anxiously awaiting the next sequel!!! There is also a spin-off series by Jamie Gregory that I am also going to try.

Second in the Occult Crime Unit Investigation series, Evil Dark, by Justin Gustainis, continues to draw readers in with an excellent narrator (think Harry Dresden, but give him a badge and a crucifix) in a pleasingly noir world that’s only slightly offset from our own. The atmosphere is coolly convincing, from crowded precinct to streets and bars, to rooms with locked doors where vampires sleep like the dead. The dialog has pitch perfect humor, pathos and urgency as much-loved friends and family are brought into an ever-expanding danger. The punnish sarcasm zings with lots of great movie and book references (James Bond in From Transylvania with Love, for example). And the church just might change its stance on “supes,” or supernaturals, one day. Meanwhile, the important questions are rather, who’s out to get whom, where does luck come into it, and will the witch save the world or destroy it? A father protecting his child, a cop chasing bad guys, a hero who really shouldn’t keep going it alone (but daylight’s bad for his partner)... Stan Markowski’s a character I could keep reading about, again and again, and I hope there’ll be many more books on offer in this series. “Jamaican Blue Mountain” coffee beans will never taste the same. “Not all bikers are human racist...” after all. And in the style of all the best noir fiction, Evil Dark is scary, sometimes thought-provoking, suspenseful, gritty and violent, and it’s great fun, set in Scranton, in a slightly, and darkly, altered USA. Disclosure: I was given a free ecopy and I offer my honest review. I honestly loved it.
