Overview

It's not easy turning hairy and nasty every month. But science may have good news for the victims of lycanthropy in these United States. For five years now, ever since werewolves were "outed," fading actor MontyAllen had hosted an annual telethon to raise money for research to find a cure, and suddenly he claimed there was light at the end of the tunnel -- and it wasn't the light of the full moon. But then the chief researcher who developed the cure ws found inher laboratory with her throat torn out. When the researcher's assistant was killed in the same way, TV reporter Ashly Durban and ex-policeman Bob Savik investigated the case -- but only turned up riddles. Had the dead researchers doubted that the highly-publicized cure would work? Does Monty Allen have a sinister reason for wanting to administer the anti-lycanthrope drug to all known werewolf cases? What about the vocal, obnoxious, but possibly well-intentioned, Werewolf Rights group? (Werewolves aren't the problem: people who hate and fear werewolves are the problem!) And if werewolves are really necessary to the balance of nature, what would happen if they all disappeared? Getting no answers that made snese, Durban and Savik kept asking embarrassing questions -- until they found themselves on the run.

The author of The Faery Convention offers readers another irreverent look at the politics of fantasy. It'snot easy turning hairy and nasty every month. But there's good news for victims of lycanthropy when telethon host Monty Allen announces that science has found a cure--until both researchers who developed the cure are found with their throats torn out. Now, reporter Ashly Durban and ex-cop Bob Savik began investigating the case, and find themselves running for their lives. Targeted ads. Original.

    Not to be Missed!

    Fans of Ms. Davis will be excited to greet her newest romantic mystery; Hair of the Dog. Everyone's favorite theater operator-slash-investigator Angie Deacon is back, desperately attempting to salvage the remnants of her vacation at the lake.

    The local pub "Hair of the Dog" figures largely in the adventures in this one. As does a barking dog - actually, the barking dog really gets some front-action play, as it barks non-stop next to Angie's rented cottage. The dog is the catalyst - she approaches the owner, unsympathetic and rude Simon. Of course, the interaction (that the police insist on terming 'an altercation') doesn't help her out any when Simon is discovered in a pool of blood in his cottage. Angie gets a first look along with the police - and we can see what's coming. She's in up to her ears in solving this. and we can't help but hope that the distant boyfriend will be back to help out. (If you didn't read 'Playing with Fire,' you're out in the cold a bit here, because you just don't know how much Jarvis is worth waiting for.)

    Dialogue is zippy and realistic and carries the story to a great degree. From gal-pals to confrontations, and more unexpectedly: the ins and outs of canine relationships, there really is never a dull moment, although I might wish for a little more (and earlier) action with the dashing Jarvis. When he does show up he's still that fabulously attractive and intelligent cop we remember. There are plenty of lighter moments and flippant dialogue.

    The setting is very wonderful: anyone who has ever visited the Lake Winnipesauke region of New Hampshire will get a special kick out of this. Between the signature drink, the hoot of a barman(who's a Yankee when he wants to be,) and the fab fettuccine, I wish the Hair of the Dog really existed. A fun read - don't miss.

    This follow-up to A Little Murder finds former ER nurse Angie Deacon co-owner of a theater and in a relationship with Detective Colby Jarvis. Angie and Jarvis hope to spend a few days relaxing in nearby Weirs, but the constant barking of a dog in the cottage next to theirs proves a deterrent. The dog finally stops barking, to Angie's relief, but soon after, she finds the body of the dog's owner, Simon York, on his living room floor. Due to an altercation Angie had with York over the dog, she's targeted by the investigating detective as a suspect. Angie subsequently has the bad luck to discover the body of York's ex-wife, Darlene Lonergan, dog breeder and owner of Lonergan Cosmetics. The common denominator between the two murders: Angie. Angie and Jarvis suspect the deaths are related to suspicious goings-on at the local bar, Hair of the Dog. In an effort to clear Angie of the murders, they begin their own investigation while caring for York's dog, only to find their lives in mortal danger. This well-written mystery offers plenty of suspects as Davis takes the reader into two diverse worlds: the dog show venue and the cosmetics industry. Angie and Jarvis are unique in that they are portrayed so realistically, each with their own strengths and weaknesses; a couple trying to work out the kinks of their relationship. The mystery will challenge readers as they follow the clues and filter through suspicious characters and circumstances. Dog lovers will appreciate the presence of Guinness, an Irish Setter, along with a nice dose of information concerning dog shows and breeding.

    Yarr.

    As far as werewolf books go there's a lot better out there. It's a zany, off-the-wall story that doesn't even try to be believable (one of the characters is a 15 year-old who buys malt liquor and has an apartment in his own name), but the story moves along at a brisk pace and thus saves it from skidding from mediocrity. Still, the book (and especially the ending) struck me as a little hackneyed, and I'm sure a lot of people will agree with me. If you're looking for something with substance keep this one off your list.
