URBAN FANTASY CRIME REVIEW: NEW SERIES: Prospero's War 1: Dirty Magic - Jaye Wells

Release Date: 21/01/14
Publisher:  Orbit


DIRTY MAGIC - IT'S DANGEROUS, ILLEGAL AND TWICE AS ADDICTIVE AS COCAINE The Magical Enforcement Agency keeps dirty magic off the streets, but there's a new blend out there that's as deadly as it is elusive. When patrol cop Kate Prospero shoots the lead snitch in this crucial case, she's brought in to explain herself. But the more she learns about the investigation, the more she realises she must secure a spot on the MEA task force. Especially when she discovers that their lead suspect is the man she walked away from ten years earlier - on the same day she swore she'd given up dirty magic for good.


I really love a new novel from a favourite author so receiving a cracking new Urban Crime Tale from Jaye Wells was a great way to start a new year. What you get is a story that has high octane action, some wonderful emotional twists as well as a principle character that has personal alongside professional quandaries to resolve.

Back this all up with an identifiable writing style, some wonderful dialogue with some great one liners and I was a more than happy reader. Magic.
