Kelley Armstrong has been a consistently high quality author for Orbit here in the UK, her strong performance indicated by the classy hard cover releases of her books, with mass market editions following. Her latest, Waking the Witch having first appeared last July now follows that same pattern - and for those interested in such things, it's worth checking this Orbit cover against the that of US release from Dutton. Ummm.... No contest, I'd say!
"Columbus is a small, fading town, untouched by the twenty-first century. But when three young women are found dead - victims of what appear to be ritual murders - things start to get very dark, and very dangerous ...Private investigator Savannah Levine can handle 'dark and dangerous'. As the daughter of a black witch, she has a lot of power running through her veins, and she's not afraid to use it. But her arrival in Columbus has not gone unnoticed. Savannah may think she's tracking down a murderer, but could she be the killer's next target? Of course she could always ask her old friend (and half-demon) Adam Vasic for back up. But Savannah has her own - very personal - reasons for keeping Adam well away from Columbus. And in any case, she can rely on her own powers. Can't she ...? "
