The last thing patrol cop Kate Prospero expected to find on her nightly rounds was a werewolf covered in the blood of his latest victim. But then, she also didn't expect that shooting him would land her in the crosshairs of a Magic Enforcement Agency task force, who wants to know why she killed their lead snitch. The more Prospero learns about the dangerous new potion the MEA is investigating, the more she's convinced that earning a spot on their task force is the career break she's been wanting. But getting the assignment proves much easier than solving the case. Especially once the investigation reveals their lead suspect is the man she walked away from ten years earlier-on the same day she swore she'd never use dirty magic again. Kate Prospero's about to learn the hard way that crossing a wizard will always get you burned, and that when it comes to magic, you should never say never.
"Kate Prospero is my new favorite heroine-imperfect, haunted, driven, and dangerous." (New York Times best seller Kevin Hearne)

Solid start to a new series...

Great Concept/Poor Execution
The concept of the story is pretty good, and the characters are fairly interesting if a little trope. Unfortunately, the dialog reads like it was written by a bored, Midwestern housewife who learned to write "tough street talk" while watching old episodes of "Dragnet." In one scene, the hardboiled special agent actually says "Come on team, weve got crimes to solve" I mean COME ON! Who talks like that?
Probably not, her juvenile writing style makes it almost impossible to enjoy her fairly good plot.
She did really well considering what she had to work with
I might, if the person who wrote the screenplay changes enough of the dialog around it might make a decent movie.
I only read this book because I'm such a big fan a Kevin Hearne and it showed up as a book he was currently reading. Im hoping that was just some marketing ploy by Audible to move "Dirty Magic" I have a hard time believing the guy who wrote the Iron Druid series actually liked this book.
