Review: The Disappearing Client (Spirelli Paranormal Investigations #1) by Kate Baray (2015)

ASIN-B01096BO90-TN.jpgI always read more than a book at a time. Lately I find that I am not satisfied alternating between two long (longish?) books, so Iโ€™ll try reading shorter works along side longer works instead. This week I picked The Disappearing Client, the first episode of Spirelli Paranormal Investigations, an urban paranormal series, by Kate Baray first published in 2015.

The story opens with Jack Spirelli, a junk shop owner, and he just soft launched his investigating agency. He is human but connected to the magic-using community and the Inter-Pack Policing Cooperative that give him gigs. He floated the idea of hiring an assistant investigator and along came Marin, a human slash dragon applying for the job. After she was hired, off they go for their first job together. Their supposed body guarding job was changed to search and rescue when their client was no where to be found. What happened to her and could they find her in time.

Paranormal investigators of course reminds me of the Harry Dresden series. The use of โ€œepisodeโ€ format fits because this is short and like police procedurals in TV the main story is self-contained. The character stories, I hope, might continue on with the series as I am interested in revisiting the characters again.
