4.0 out of 5 stars Great setting, good story, 29 Feb. 2008
This review is from: The Last Twilight (Dirk & Steele) (Dirk & Steele) (Mass Market Paperback)
This book is part of the Dirk & Steele series by Marjorie M Liu about a detective agency staffed by shapeshifters. In this story, Amiri the shapeshifter cheetah is sent to Congo to protect a doctor, Rikki Kinn. Rikki is one fo the world's best virus hunters and has rushed to a scene that is apparently an ebola attack. However, once there Rikki realises there is something else going on and when she is rescued by Amiri and his colleague Eddie it starts a game of hide-and-seek though the jungle of Congo. Their enemies are varied and they have to contend with injury, memories and fear of contamination from the mystery virus.

The plot in this book is quite complex with several 'baddies', some of whom turn out not to be baddies at all. The cast of characters is fairly wide, including several different shapeshifters, but it was always possible to keep track of who was what. The highlight of the book for me was the setting in Congo and the complexity of the plot as Rikki tries to find out why so many people want to capture her. It was a good read but perhaps a little overcomplex in places for comfortable reading.
