Under the Gun

Hannah Jayne. Kensington, $7.99 mass market (312p) ISBN 978-0-7582-8110-4

Life is never dull at San Francisco’s Underworld Detection Agency. In the fast-paced, sexy, and uproariously funny fourth installation of Jayne’s urban fantasy series (after Under Suspicion), hapless UDA investigator Sophie Lawson contends with the return of her werewolf ex-boss, Pete Sampson, presumed dead and now on the run from werewolf hunters. San Francisco is rocked by a mysterious series of unusually vicious murders during an equally brutal heat wave, and Sophie wonders whether Pete might be the culprit. Meanwhile, the tension between Sophie and sexy Alex Grace, a cop and fallen angel, heats up after a rough patch. Part will-they/won’t-they supernatural romance, part heart-pounding mystery, and part love letter to San Francisco, this page-turner is packed full of unforgettable characters and suspense. It will delight new readers and fans alike. (Feb.)
