The Infernal Detective by Kirsten Weiss
Genre: Paranormal mystery
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
The Infernal Detective is the fourth book in the Riga Hayworth paranormal mystery novels and it may just be my favorite. I don’t want to give away too much of the plot and spoil the small surprises sprinkled throughout, so I’ll just say that the story opens with a pre-celebratory wedding bash for Riga and Donovan that leaves them both in a terribly sticky situation.
There’s a dead photographer that walks away from the party and a groom-to-be that disappears. Riga not only has to worry about who murdered the photographer but what has happened to the man she’s about to marry. Some of my favorite scenes involve Riga’s aunts, two colorful characters who provide comic relief. I also enjoyed the descriptions and explanations of the magic used and Riga’s growth in her magical abilities. Yeah sure there’s crazy mob bosses, witches and necromancy, but at the heart of this story, it’s still about the strength of the human spirit and that’s a magic all its own.
Fast-paced and funny, The Infernal Detective is a great read whether you’re meeting Riga for the first time or the fourth. [Tweet this!]
