"Book of Shadows" was a very good novel. It was 290 Nook pages. And, it was really well written. Normally, I would not put together these two topics (police procedural + supernatural mystery) in one book and call it successful. But, it works well for this author. The characters were stiff at first, but grew on me as the story progressed. There were enough twists and turns to keep you guessing "whodunnit". I thought that all of the magicky details enriched the plot and the characters. I was impressed by the highly informed and modern approach to Wicca, witches, lapsed-Catholics, and demonology were handled in this book. Also, there were sufficient descriptions of supernatural elements, such as Wiccan holidays and Satanist ideology, that even a newcomer to these things would be able to follow along. Addotionally, the standard police procedure and justification for police actions were well described. I felt the way that all of these ideas were presented, as a whole, seemed quite believable to me. I am going to refrain from describing the plot, since it has already been done by other reviewers in a more than satisfactory manner. This is the first novel that I have read by Sokoloff. And, you can be sure that I will be reading even more titles by the author very soon. I highly recommend this book to those who enjoy multiple murder mysteries solved by police officers with a bit of supernatural help. There are a lot of references to demons, witches, and satanists. So, if you are sensitive to any of these topics, then this is not the book for you. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable way to spend a few hours. -AvidReader

Even without the teenage corpse looking out of place like a broken doll, the landfill where eighteen year old Erin Carmody's mutilated body laid looked like hell. BPD Homicide detectives Adam Garrett and Carl Landauer lead the investigation into the murder of the daughter of a prominent Boston businessman. The etching on the corpse most likely means this was a ritual satanic killing. The two police partners interview suspect Erin's college friend Jason Moncrief. His response to any question is chanting Choronzon, an alleged demon when he suddenly attacks Carl. Although the evidence piles up making Moncrief guilty beyond a shadow of doubt, Tanith Cabarrus a self proclaimed witch insists he is innocent, more homicides have and will occur, and the supernatural is the culprit. Although pressure mounts from the brass, the media, and the family to hang Moncrief, Jason follows up on what Tanith says even as he wonders if she cast an attraction spell on him and whether she might be the mortal perpetrator. The key to this terrific police procedural is readers are kept off balance by Alexandra Sokoloff wondering whether the killer is a paranormal from beyond or a deranged human. Fast-paced with strong characterizations, fans will enjoy this superb thriller, as Adam and the audience wonder whether The Unseen could be the killer. Harriet Klausner

I really enjoyed this book as well. I like this author and will read more books from her. I am a big fan of anything with witches and demons and things like this, in a good book. If you like to read about the supernatural as well, check this book out.

One of the most chilling books I've ever read. Couldn't put it down.
