The Love-Haight Case Files

The Love-Haight Case Files, Book 1: Seeking Supernatural Justice

 

Ever since the Summer of Love, the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco has been known for attracting weird and unconventional souls, but things got even stranger when the monsters moved in.

 

Magic has returned to the world and with it a host of supernatural creatures--not just vampires and ghosts, but sentient gargoyles, ghouls, sprites, faeries, and more. The frightened citizenry, holier-than-thou bigots, headline-seeking reporters, and harried police refer to them as OTs (Other-Than-Humans), but Thomas Brock and Evelyn Love believe even magical creatures have legal rights.

 

Delve into their case files for a genre-bending mix of mystery, horror, investigatory suspense, pulse-pounding thrills, courtroom drama, and romance. The city’s OT element is sometimes malevolent, sometimes misunderstood, and often discriminated against. Brock and Love represent them all, dead, undead, or alive—whatever the case, whatever the species.

 

Winner of three prestigious Silver Falchion Awards

for mysteries, thrillers, and suspense novels:

Best Fantasy, Best Urban Fantasy, and Best Multi-Genre Novel.

 

Love-Haight is a comedy, locked within a mystery, hidden in a horror story... Wonderfully clever, stylish, and ghoulish. Delightfully twisted fun! —William C. Dietz, New York Times bestselling author

 

The Love-Haight Case Files, Book 2: Fighting for Other-Than-Human Rights

Evelyn Love and Thomas Brock love the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, love the law, love representing the rights of supernatural OTs (Other-Than-Humans) who accompanied the return of magic to the world, and just might love each other, even though Thomas is now a ghost. But with discrimination against OTs ramping up and the entire law office staff living under threat of death or worse, the cases are darker, the mysteries are murkier, the clients are more desperate, the stakes are higher, and the parallels to the real world are even more compelling. Book 2 of The Love-Haight Case Files tells four new, stand-alone tales of mystery, horror, suspense, action, and romance in a legal procedural/urban fantasy where love and danger both flourish in unexpected ways.

Part fantasy noir, part supernatural legal thriller, Love-Haight sparkles with wit and originality. Fans of urban fantasy are sure to love Thomas Brock and Evelyn Love! —Troy Denning, New York Times bestselling author

 

More Love!  More Haight-Ashbury! More monsters! More case files!
