Cold-blooded kidnappers. Long-lost magic. When things get serious, she goes full Sherlock.
Ashira Cohen takes pride in being the only female private investigator in Vancouver. With her skills, her missing persons case should be a piece of cake.

She wasn’t counting on getting bashed in the skull, revealing a hidden tattoo and supernatural powers she shouldn’t possess.

Or the bitter icing on top: a spree of abductions and terrifying ghostly creatures on a deadly bender.
And don’t even get her started on the golems.

Reluctantly partnered with her long-time nemesis Levi, the infuriating leader of the magic community, Ash resolves to keep her focus on the clue trail and off their sexual tension because WTF is up with that?

But with a mastermind organization pulling strings from the shadows and Levi’s arrogance driving her to pick out his body bag, can Ash rescue the captives and uncover the truth or will the next blood spilled be her own?


I found this audio book on netgalley and then discovered that there are 2 more books in this series already out! Its also free on kindle unlimited.  This is a great YA supernatural mystery series.  The main character Ashira is a snarky jewish detective in a world of mundane and magical people.  People with magic must be registered with a house and her mother is in politics fighting for more regulation against magical people.  After a routine stakeout Ashira is injured and starts to see weird things and finds a tattoo on the back of her head she didn't know was there.

Filled with Jewish mysticism, romance and witty banter this is a fun read.  I am definitely going to be downloading the rest of this series.
