What do you do when you're dealing with something a little on the spooky side? You hire one of these folks. You don't have to have read the different series to enjoy these new tales, but they will certainly inspire you to seek out the other books! Meanwhile, those who are devoted followers of the different series will certainly declare this anthology a must-have. I think this is a great idea, and that more authors and series should do such collections . . . and, dare I suggest, crossovers!
"Readers will be delighted with this collection of original novellas tied to popular crime/fantasy series. The standout is Sniegoski's Noah Orphans, in which angel PI Remy Chandler must solve the murder of the biblical Ark's builder, whose battered corpse is found on an abandoned oil rig. Sniegoski manages to make a far-fetched setup both plausible and moving. [...] All solid and suspenseful, these stories are sure to please."
