This book is an investigative tale with a slow to moderate pace involving way to much driving from one place to another. Although the heroine is gritty and engaging, the story is too methodically boring and the supernatural elements play a very minor role. This book just didn't have enough zing, intrigue or surprising twists for me.

Definitely keeps your attention. Character development is quite good and no slow passages.

GiGi is a woman of brains, power and stength born out of adversity. All I can say is move over Anita Blake, this is one woman I can admire. The sequel can't come soon enough.

After a decade on the Providence police force thirty-four years old Gwen 'GiGi' Gelman works undercover for the vice squad when a bust turns ugly. Several people die and someone must take the fall. Classic example of garbage going downhill occurs; GiGi is fired....................... Needing to eat, GiGi opens up a private investigative firm that seems to be doing well especially when she deftly handles a molester giving up his day job as a Catholic school teacher. Her current case is to find a missing teen. As the inquiries spin between abduction and runaway, GiGi begins to find she stunningly has psychic powers and starts to ascertain that she is not quite human. As she learns more about her elfish genetic makeup, her investigation propels her to apply her vice squad experience as an undercover operator looking into the Underhill gentlemen only club where children perform erotic dances. The inquiries begin to spin into something greater than a missing teen as a conspiracy involving her family ties surface with the club¿s owner Ian Forest assisting GiGi, who cannot understand why he would aid the apparent enemy........................ SHADOWS IN THE DARKNESS is an excellent private investigative tale starring a delightful unique protagonist, an elf. The story line makes believers out of readers that Elaine Cunningham¿s realm exists as the author cleverly introduces her heroine via the mystery. GiGi is a terrific champion struggling with her case and her new knowledge about her heritage that is dangerous to her elfish health. Private investigative fantasy fans will appreciate this fabulous opening novel that will remind readers of Jim Butcher¿s Dresden files............................. Harriet Klausner
