Red Hot Steele
Book 1, Daggers & Steele
Alex P. Berg
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Detective Jake Daggers likes his murder investigations the way he likes his women—straightforward, easy, and with a killer body.
So when his older-than-dust partner throws his back out on a goblin raid, his captain assigns him a new running mate—a sexy young half-elf by the name of Shay Steele.
It seems like a match made in Daggers’ imagination, but Steele’s no pushover. She’s a powerful forensic psychic, and she’s got sass oozing out of her boots.
In a debut case teeming with fire mages, foundries, and a dead guy who’s crispier than bacon, it’s pretty clear Daggers isn’t the only one getting a heaping helping of RED HOT STEELE.
This is an off-beat detective story set in a place with no guns or automobiles. There are dwarves, elves, and ogres though. It's a murder mystery with a wise-cracking detective. Inventive and entertaining.
I loved this book so much that I couldn't put it down and have since read it two more times. It is sarcastic, but in a light hearted way and the mystery was well done. I was guessing till the end. The off best way Detective Daggers looks at his world is funny and addicting. You will buy the rest of the series gladly!

This was a ball of fun to read, as well as a good mystery with plenty of plot twists and character development. Loved it.
