Book Review: Hookers & Blowe

HookersAndBloweEbook-Hires-640x1024I recently had the pleasure of a fun read by Mhairi Simpson called, Hookers & Blowe.

When criminals start to drop dead without visible cause, most see it as a blessing sent from above. However, for Detective Robby Blowe, murder is murder, no matter the victims crimes. Blowe reminds me of the hard-boiled heart of gold detectives I read as a teen – a good man in a difficult world.

Blowe’s investigation leads him into a shadow world where supernatural beings live among and prey on humans with impunity. To complicate matters, those in the know fear that which stalks darkened souls and seem more than willing to sacrifice a few innocents to trim the vermin from the streets. Blowe finds himself alone and holding a hand full of jokers in a game where they aren’t wild. Who does one trust when all the information seems unbelievably insane? Well, a sexy life draining demoness, of course.

Hookers & Blowe is a fun read, full of twists, turns and gritty imagery. Mhairi’s style is crisp and clean. Hookers & Blowe is a lovely blend of detective story and paranormal thriller, with a dash of otherworldly romance on the side. I highly recommend this book for a light, exciting read.
