Overview

Gillian Key is a complicated woman. As a paramortal psychologist, she can heal the mental distress of nonhumans. When duty calls, this Marine Special Forces operative can kill with the best of them.
 
Recalled by her commanding officer, Gillian finds herself in northern Russia after a devastating earthquake. Her special ops team, made up of both human and paramortal soldiers, breaks up a ring of child traffickers preying on newly orphaned children. But away from Count Aleksei Rachlav, the irresistible vampire she left behind, Gillian is vulnerable to the Dark Prince himself—Dracula—who would like nothing more than to use her as a pawn in his escalating war with Rachlav. And when Gillian is sidetracked by yet another mission in London, one that goes horribly wrong in, she finds herself at the mercy of one of Dracula’s minions, a creature who rattles her like no other: Jack the Ripper—reborn.

Marine Corps Special Ops psychiatrist Dr. Gillian Key is an expert in abnormal paramortal psychology as she works with supernatural patients with biting problems. However she is assigned as part of a team to provide assistance to the victims of a horrific earthquake in Russia. Though she knows she will see plenty of tragedy and her specific task is investigating rumors of child selling, Gillian looks forward to getting away from her usual paranormal clientele especially the brass.------------- However what should have been a natural calamity with a horrific aftermath turns into a supernatural disaster. Dracula, whom she met on a previous adventure (see KEY TO CONFLICT), is fascinated by the soldier-psychiatrist as he is more used to subservient females not combatant women. As bad or perhaps worse Jack the Ripper is using the mishap as an easy cover for his nefarious activities. Of course Gillian wonders if she has Murphy DNA as she meets a who¿s who of horror superstars.----------------- Whereas KEY TO CONFLICT is preeminently military urban fantasy, KEY TO CONSPIRACY is more horror although the heroine¿s patients include vampires with biting guilt complexes, werewolves with species identity issues and military brass with 5-star superegos. The story line is fast-paced and filled with action, but also contains an underlying satirical feel as Talia Gryphon lampoons the sub-genre. Readers will relish the Russian adventure as the Key to this tale is the fully developed (with a wink) lead protagonist who copes with Drac, Jack and general whackos.------------ Harriet Klausner

I actually enjoyed the first book (albeit there was immediate sex interactions) but this second book had me a bit worried. The time frame did not fit in my mind. We went from a few months to a few years and that really confused me. Other than that, the plot was decent and the story was intriguing. Can't wait for the next book!
