Read full description of the books:
Somewhat standard police drama where the current state of politics is as much a character as the detectives trying to solve the murder.
Sometime in the very near future, the world economy has pretty much collapsed, and some type of rebellion has created a world government. There is not much background on this, just things dropped throughout the story. Government officials are fairly corrupt, there are shortages of basic services, and the black market is overrun with voodoo/magic scams. Kind of a Bladerunner world without the advanced tech.
The main character, Detective Ty Merrick, clams to have lycanthropy, but she is not actually a werewolf. Her disease increases with the onset of the full moon, and there are slight physical and psychological changes, but most people just think she is crazy. She becomes a reluctant research project for an ambitious doctor.
Ty and her partner are called on to solve the murder of a councilman's wife, which leads into political issues that put the detectives in danger from the murderer, and possibly the government.
For the most part it is a good book, just a little underwhelming. Nothing is really fleshed out about the world, and a lot of the storylines are just kind of simple, but this is the first book in the series. Hopefully the world building will continue, because as just a quirky crime novel, this story is lacking. I will give the next book a try though.
