Dead Eye by Alyssa Day
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
For Jack Shepherd, tiger shape-shifter and former soldier, life is heading for a dead end. Dead End, Florida, to be exact. When he learns that he inherited a combination pawn shop/private investigation agency from his favorite uncle, Jack’s first job is to solve his uncle’s murder. Because sometimes it takes a tiger’s eye to see the truth.
I loved it. Absolutely loved it. I had no idea it was a spinoff from her Warriors of Poseidon series, but that just made it even better.
We know (and love) Jack from the Poseidon series, but Tess was new to me. She is not a shifter, but she has her own paranormal ability, although in her case it is more of a curse. If she touches someone, she can see how they die. Obviously, that limits her human contact.
There are murders, both past and present. Black magic and human evil.
And Fluffy . . . a stuffed alligator.
The book has a solid ending, but there is plenty of room for additional books. I cannot wait.
I have not read Alyssa Day’s Cardinal Witches series, but I understand that one of the characters shows up in this book as well, giving us a link between three series. And on that note, I am going to download this new-to-me series and start reading.
