A Key, an Egg, an Unfortunate Remark by Harry Connolly

A MYSTERIOUS KILLING

After years of waging a secret war against the supernatural, Marley Jacobs put away her wooden stakes and silver bullets, then turned her back on violence. She declared Seattle, her city, a safe zone for everyone, living and undead. There would be no more preternatural murder under her watch.

But waging peace can make as many enemies as waging war, and when Marley's nephew turns up dead in circumstances suspiciously like a vampire feeding, she must look into it. Is there a new arrival in town? Is someone trying to destroy her fragile truce? Or was her nephew murdered because he was, quite frankly, a complete tool?

As Marley investigates her nephew's death, she discovers he had been secretly dabbling in the supernatural himself. What, exactly, had he been up to, and who had he been doing it with? More importantly, does it threaten the peace she has worked so hard to create?

(Spoiler: yeah, it absolutely does.)

I love this author. He delivers a great story with likable , interesting characters. Each of the worlds he creates is new and believable. I find it amazing that he can change voice and style to produce a completely different, but equally enjoyable novel. Compared to the 20 Palaces series ( which I wish he'd continue ), this is much more light hearted and fun loving. Reminds me of Terry Pratchett or Johnathan L. Howard's Cabal Brothers in tone. I would honestly pay more for this book and I hope I see more of these characters in the future.

It's a story about a frail old lady, her nephew who is trying to make sense of a world he never knew about, and an array of colorful, delightful characters. Some of whom are even human.

This carries over the gray feelings of the 20 Palaces but in a more mystery-bound setting. I had to force myself to finish it. But worth looking at if you liked Connollys other work,... I was hoping for something a bit more cheerful
