Dead to Rites (#3)

Previous: Hallow Point | Next: In Truth and Claw

Mick Oberon may look like just another 1930s private detective, but beneath the fedora and the overcoat, he’s got pointy ears and he’s packing a wand. Mick is suffering from bad luck, and when luck is your chief magical weapon, that means things are pretty dire. Hunting for the origin of his bad mojo, Mick finds himself on the trail of a missing mummy, and being trailed by some of the most dangerous mobsters in Chicago. As well as once again embroiled in the maneuverings of the seductive and lethal Ramona Webb and her mysterious employer. All Mick knows for sure is that, until he can figure out precisely what’s going on, he’s vulnerable. And the threat, whatever it is and from whatever direction it may be coming, is very, very real.


“The third entry in the inventive series about a 1930s private eye who also happens to be one of the Fae mixes supernatural investigations and Al Capone’s Chicago for an irresistible combo.”

Library Journal

“Marmell makes his premise convincing [...] He’s also good at varying his tone [...] [and] has a gift for unusual imagery.”
