His Father’s Eyes - David B. Coe

His Father’s Eyes
David B. Coe
Baen, Aug 4 2015, $25.00
ISBN 9781476780627

Former Phoenix cop Justis Fearsson turned private investigator is a Weremyste, one who wields magic except when the moon is full and his logical mind turned to mush.  Currently he investigates the murder of seemingly invincible runemyst Cahors and apparently related ritual homicides.  At the same time his former partner PPD Detective Kona needs his help at the airport with a plane carrying a corpse and a bomb.

A swarm of dark sorcerers have camped in the nearby desert.  Though he wants to know what they plot because it can’t be good, Fearsson also prefers to keep his distance.  However their assault on his beloved Billie Castle the reporter and his dad force the Weremyste into action even as the nearing of the full moon concerns him; but unaware that he is their intended target.

The second Case Files of Justis Fearsson (see Spell Blind) is an electrifying urban (and desert) fantasy private investigator thriller.  With realistic settings (in the city and beyond) and a hard boiled sleuthing mage working within the Coe magic physics system, His Father’s Eyes is an enchanting mystery.
