Book Review: The Nightshade Forensic Files: Under Dark Skies (book 1) by A.J. Scudiere

Two misfit FBI agents with secrets about their lives are put together for operation Nightshade, which is focussing in on a cult. With the body of a dead girl and a possible sighting of a missing girl, Eleri and Donovan pool their considerable skills to get to the killer and the heart of an ominous cult.

I adore crime thrillers and this FBI procedural surprised me with its supernatural twist: one of the agents is a werewolf. Far from being something that made the rest of the story unbelievable, this premise worked in this book, which focussed in on the characters of our two leading investigators. The other alluring theme of a cult and it’s leader also made compulsive reading and I was hooked into solving this case with our two protagonists. If you are partial to CSI type investigative detail this book is definitely for you.

This book is available to read for free to Kindle Unlimited subscribers.

  1. FBI agent who is a werewolf. Sounds fun but a question is this book one of those overrated fantasy novels? or just really good detective novel with nice fantasy touch attached to it?
