The Detective And The Villain In Love (The Poe Detective Agency Book 2)
by Brian Yansky
5.0 Stars (1 Review)
Genre: Fantasy | Humor & Satire

A Twisted Urban Fantasy Mashup That Weaves Together A Tale of Star-Crossed Lovers And Goddesses Kidnapped By Satan. A detective and a villain are by definition on opposite sides of the law. What happens when they fall in love? Think Romeo and Juliet, Anthony and Cleopatra, Abelard and Heloise, Gatsby and Daisy, Westley and Buttercup (spoiler alert: only one of these worked out). Odds for star-crossed lovers’ long-term success in both literature and history are not very good. Woven into the star-crossed lovers tale is a detective story. Romeo Moon, the detective half of the detective and villain, must track down and rescue The Fates, Greek goddesses, who have been kidnapped. One major problem is the kidnapper is the original bad boy, Satan. Other problems will have to do with magic, archdemons, snake-blood assassins, and Romeo’s biological father, a former god of the underworld, who has tried to kill him numerous times in the past — an obvious candidate for bad parent of the decade. Can the lovers stay together? Can Romeo stay alive long enough to save The Fates? You know what you have to do to find out.
