Blood Games

BWL Publishing Inc. | A Garreth Mikaelian Mystery


Garreth Mikaelian is comfortably settled in a town where, his nature unknown to those around him, he works the night shift as a police officer. His blood comes in bottles. He has a routine and friends. But that peace is shattered when his fellow officer and sometime lover Maggie Lebekov is killed by a lethal trio playing ever escalating blood games. Garreth finds himself racing to locate the suspects before other law enforcement officers do, to be sure they are captured alive. Because if they are not yet vampires, and the leader may already be a very old and powerful vampire, they have drunk vampire blood and if killed will rise again even more deadly.

---

As a fan of Gareth Mikaelian since I stumbled across the first book, I was delighted to find this one to add to my new e-reader. Now if I could just get the others... Lee Killough keeps up her excellent work with police procedurals while creating a vampirism which could easily be real. Better than Anne Rice any day.

Wilding Nights

BWL Publishing Inc.


Homicide detective Allison Goodnight has a big problem. A rogue werewolf killed the victim in her latest case. She knows the signs; she is a werewolf, too. Her whole family is. It is urgent that she close this case without revealing the killer’s nature before humans’ racial memory of her kind awakens. But her new partner Zane Kerr is watching her with unnerving intensity. He is disturbed by her secretive behavior on this case. And when the description of a woman seen with the victim matches a number of Allison’s relatives, he has to wonder if she is trying to protect, not catch, the killer. He is determined to find out. Which could be fatal for him. If he learns too much, Allison may have to turn killer herself to protect her people.

Fans of Killough's meticulous craftsmanship will not be disappointed. In Wilding Nights she seamlessly inserts a fully realized supernatural race into the everyday realities of Gulf Coast life. Her characters think, talk and act the way they should, lending enormous credibility to the extraordinary elements of the story. Her characters also overtake the plot in the most surprising ways. For example, the road to romance takes a quite a different path than the one you expect, but it works perfectly.

Two years ago Garreth Mikaelian was turned into a vampire by the seductive Lane Barber. He tracked her to a small Kansas town and when she tried to kill him, killed her. He thought. But a call comes from his old partner in San Francisco that seems to indicate Lane is still alive. Garreth goes to San Francisco to find out. He determines that she *is* dead. But now someone is killing vampires and friends of vampires and trying to frame Garreth for it. Is it the vampire who created Lane? Or maybe his partner’s new partner who seems to know Garreth is a vampire and hates him for it? And as Garreth searches for the true killer, is a suspense novelist researching a new book an ally or foe? Garreth Mikaelian thought he destroyed Lane Barber, the woman who made him a vampire. But did he? When he returns to San Francisco to see, he is relieved to find she is dead. But someone is killing vampires and friends of vampires...and trying to frame Garreth for it. Is it another vampire who wants vengeance for Lane’s death? Or a detective who appears to hate vampires and knows Garreth is one? He needs to find the killer before the frame traps him...or he becomes the killer’s next victim.

evolution of Garreth's character and the pace of these novels makes them easy to tear through. Just enough mystery and action to keep you hooked, and I love the classic take on vampires!

Spider Play

BWL Publishing Inc. | Brill/Maxwell


In a bitter 2092 winter, the mystery of why someone would hijack a hearse in a snowstorm leads detectives Janna Brill and Mama Maxwell first to evidence of smuggling and then to a space station with secrets. Hundreds of miles from Earth, minus weapons or communication with Earth, they face a killer who could be the very person inviting them there

---

This is one of (Lee Killough’s) best novels. Like all of Killough's novels, the twists and turns in the plot will surprise you. I list her as one of my "must-read" authors among all SF writers.

---

Lee Killough has been storytelling since the age of four or five, when she started making up her own bedtime stories, then later, her own episodes of her favorite radio and TV shows. Because she loves both SF and mysteries, her work combines the two genres. Although published as SF, most of her novels are actually mysteries with SF or fantasy elements...with a preference--thanks to a childhood hooked on TV cop shows--for cop protagonists.

The Doppelganger Gambit

BWL Publishing Inc. | Brill/Maxwell


It looks like straightforward suicide to Detective Janna Brill. Starship outfitter Andy Kellener locked himself in his office after hours and took a fatal drug dose. But Brill’s exasperating new partner Mama Maxwell thinks it’s murder, and his chief suspect is Kellener’s partner Jorge Hazlett. The trouble is, Hazlett has an airtight alibi. In 2091's cashless society, every purchase is made with a data chip implanted in the individual’s wrist...and Hazlett’s bank records put him in a shopping mall clear across town at the time of his partner’s death. To get their man, Brill and Maxwell have to prove Hazlett faked his shopping spree...and possibly destroy law enforcement’s best tool since DNA for tracking suspects. “Like many procedurals the novel’s strength rests as much on the personalities of the cops as in the solving of the crime, and Brill and Maxwell make an entertaining pair.” Locus Magazine….“Police Procedural SF is rare — that makes Ms. Killough’s fun romp all the more appreciated. The characters, plot, indeed the whole future society are very well developed in this novel.” SF Review 34

“This is a grittily realistic police procedural set in the 21st century. Don’t miss this one.”
