Cynthia Eden, . . Kensington/Brava, $14 (313pp) ISBN 978-0-7582-2604-4
Eden’s latest brims with passion, obsession and demons as Det. Todd Brooks fights to keep Atlanta safe from a serial killer, an increasingly complex job as he discovers that his city is teeming with demons, vampires and an array of Others. It also doesn’t help that he’s smitten with beautiful prime suspect Cara Firon. All the evidence points to Cara’s guilt, but Todd is certain that she has been set up, even as his colleagues warn that he is being swayed by lust. Cara, meanwhile, turns out to be a powerful sex demon struggling with her own issues of right, wrong and love. A cast of creative secondary characters rounds out this romp that all but vibrates with sexual energy.
