Red Hot Steele by Alex P. Berg

Detective Jake Daggers likes his murder investigations the way he likes his women--straightforward, easy, and with a killer body.

So when his older-than-dust partner throws his back out on a goblin raid, his captain assigns him a new running mate--a sexy young half-elf by the name of Shay Steele.

It seems like a match made in Daggers' imagination, but Steele's no pushover. She's a powerful forensic psychic, and she's got sass oozing out of her boots.

In a debut case teeming with fire mages, foundries, and a dead guy who's crispier than bacon, it's pretty clear Daggers isn't the only one getting a heaping helping of RED HOT STEELE.

Entirely entertaining... bought first book and then promptly bought the other two.   The characters are engaging and the twists of plot are fun.  This was reading enjoyment at its qwirky best. I am a big fan of mysteries and can figure out the culprit quickly, however that did not tak away from the  whole experience.  You will not regret adding Berg to your list of authors to track.

It is an easy and enjoyable read. Characters are fun and the dialog quick. Daggers reminds me of Jim Dresden. Same semi quick wit and sarcasm. I will definitely read the next book in theseries

Alexis Berg has built an unusual world in the setting of this mystery that is quirky and strange. A paranormal story filled with action fantastical beings and an unusual murder that must be solved. Our hero is a hard boiled detective bringing a newbie along who has an interesting but dubious talent for psychic visions. There are many twists and turns up until the very last page. Start of a very interesting series you will not want to miss.

Red Hot Steele (Daggers & Steele #1) by Alex P. Berg is a fun, snarky, clever book that I gulped down in one read. What fun! Witty, good mystery, great fantasy, crazy characters, snappy dialogue, and it made me smile a lot! Just what I needed! I listened to the audio version and the narration was perfect. Great job. I originally gave it a 4 star but I just kept thinking of it so if it was effecting me that much I figured it was worth a 5 star, esp. when I wanted the next book right away.

I could not stop laughing especially when Daisy had to be swung in an arc down around his knees!! HA HA!! could put the book down and the humor was well-placed :)

Sort of an alternative universe noir story, it's fun. The main characters seem predictable, almost cliche's. But then the story builds and it's all up for grabs! It's fun to see the various characters trying to outdo each other with their observational skills.
