Overview

This urban fantasy boxed set contains the first three books of the Preternatural Affairs series: Witch Hunt, Silver Bullet, and Hotter Than Helltown.

My name's Cèsar Hawke. I’m a witch working for a division of the government you’ve never heard about.

The world’s not what everyone thinks it is—unless you think that our world’s a pawn in a game of chess between Heaven and Hell, and riddled with as much magic and wonder as it is with evil.

In that case, the world is exactly what you think.

My place of employment—the Office of Preternatural Affairs—takes a modern approach to an ages-old problem. It used to be that inquisitors would burn demons and the people in league with them. Now we get warrants, perform arrests, put the suspects on trial, and send guilty parties back to the Hell from whence they came with the travel forms filled out in triplicate.

This stuff I do with the OPA, it saves lives on most days.

Most days, I said.

About Witch Hunt
There are scratches on Cèsar Hawke’s arms, a discharged Glock on his coffee table, and a dead woman in his bathtub. Yeah, maybe he brought the waitress home for some fun—he was too drunk to remember it—but he knows for a fact that he didn’t kill her. He’s an agent with the Office of Preternatural Affairs. He doesn’t hurt people. He saves them.

The cops disagree. Now Cèsar is running.

Isobel Stonecrow speaks with the dead. She brings closure to the bereaved and heals broken hearts. But when she talks to the wrong spirit, the OPA puts a bounty on her head.

Tracking down Isobel is the last case assigned to Cèsar before he bolts. If he finds her, he can prove that he didn’t kill that waitress. He can clear his name, get his job back, and bring justice to all those wronged families.

She’s just one witch. He’s bagged a dozen witches before.

How hard can one more be?

About Silver Bullet
Former private investigator Cèsar Hawke has one rule: He doesn’t deal with dead bodies. That’s why he enlisted with the Magical Violations Department in the Office of Preternatural Affairs. He’s happy tracking down witches that commit petty crimes, but he leaves the homicides to other agents.

Except that he’s been assigned to a new team—a team that handles special investigations—and the job has suddenly changed. Now Cèsar has to deal with dead bodies. He also has to deal with necromancers, murderous cults, and demons that can stop a man’s heart with fear.

This isn’t the job he signed up for, but it’s the job he needs to do.

If he survives the first week.

About Hotter Than Helltown
A killer is mutilating bodies in Los Angeles. Agent Cèsar Hawke is on the case, but the murderer is ahead of him—way ahead of him.

Wiping the memories of the dead so that the team’s necrocognitive can’t talk to them? Done. Preventing magical reconstruction of the crime scenes? Oh yeah. And the murders keep getting more brutal while Cèsar struggles to catch up.

The best way to heat up a cold case is to go to Helltown, where Los Angeles’s most powerful evil hides out, but even those demons are afraid of the murderer. Their fear adds one more question to the growing pile of unknowns:

What kind of bad guy is too hot for Helltown?

Enjoyed the books. Story keep a good pace of events, action and humor. The plots and characters discription are very similar to those of the.Dresden' files though there are difference in their personalities.

Good fun book

I'm hooked on this series! Cesar & the rest of the characters are fun, quirky, magical, with a lot of hidden history & hidden agendas. Cesar is a witch & is an adorable character thou a lot times he doesn't think much of himself & his low level magic . Suzy is a crack up, a very powerful & tough talking witch. She calls cesar a lot of insulting names but is always there to cheer him up. Fritz is his cool, hard acting boss but there's a lot going on beneath the surface. & what is the mystery that surrounds isobel?

I have read other books by this author and I enjoyed them so I decided to read this set. This was a great set about paranormal individuals that work for the Office of Preternatural Affairs. Cesar Hawke's is a witch and he works with Magical Violations NOT with dead bodies. He is arrested and accused of murder and escapes from the police jail. He plans to try and clear his name. The story follows him as he investigates who could have framed him. He is looking for Isobel, someone there office is trying to find. He finds her and since she is a necromancer, he wants her to talk to the womon he is accused of killing. The books follow the adventures of Cesar, Agent Suzanne, his office mate, Isobel and his supervisor Fritz, Friederling as they go off on a special project that Fritz wants them to work on. A well written series, they flows with excitement as they fight demons bringing their little group closer together to keep Humanity safe. This fun book is a fast read. I just went from story to story as fast as I could until the end.
