Sam Stone is an Ancient, a paranormal with enhanced strength and reflexes, and is a detective in a world where humans and paranormals of various kinds live in an uneasy relationship. Some are out to cause racial tension or even worse. Sam's partner, Steel, is a human and they obviously get on well together and work with the same methods. They investigate the murder of a young human woman whose boyfriend was an Ancient.
This is a quick, fast paced novel with a number of themes running through it, including that of the racial hatred of the other major races by humanity who consider themselves superior. There's a murder hunt with additional murders and attempted murders on the way and a nicely satisfactory conclusion. If you like the `suspend your disbelief' world of fantasy and also enjoy a good mystery/thriller you've got it all here. If you strike Stone and Steel together you're bound to get sparks!
