Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

Dragon Justice (Paranormal Crime Scene Investigations #4)

Dragon Justice  - Laura Anne Gilman

I'm not really sure what to say about this book. I've just now put it down and it was just excellent.

 

The paranormal team (I can NOT call them PUPI) stumbles across a series of really brutal, graphic murders - if I hadn't read the previous books and gotten to know the characters and their backgrounds, I'm not sure I would have enjoyed this book as much; I might have found the murders a bit too dark and brutal.

 

Reading about the team - watching them really; it's written so well that I "see" it in my head as I read the words - working together, playing off each other and their individual strengths to solve the crimes, kept me unable to put the book down until the end. I loved watching Ben and Bonnie handle the Merge; I found it quietly poetic.

 

I'm left a tad confused about the ending though - it definitely reads as though there will be a fifth book but everything I've read on the author's website in the past points to this being the last book. I sincerely hope I'm wrong for so many reasons, one of them being I want to know what Aden's final play was. I'll have my fingers crossed for a fifth.
