Format: Kindle Edition
First, the long description of this book on its jacket and its Amazon page completely, thoroughly and honestly summarizes exactly what this book is about. This remarkably entertaining book is a magical thriller with a touch of classic L.A. noir. It is funny and fast-paced and a real genre bender.

What isn't clear is the fact that the book is witty, full of sly little digs and bits, and cheerfully energetic. I was taken by the first few chapters - they were elegant and creepy. When skeleton detective Dexter Graves was introduced I began to get a bit concerned, because his arrival was a little jokey and a little underwritten. Was this book going to lose its way and sharpness and just peter out or get silly? Nope. My concern was unjustified. Once Graves gets himself established as a central character and hooks up with the heroine, and once we get all of the remaining necessary exposition out of the way, the book really takes off.

But slam-bang action never takes over. The book stays witty, imaginative and, somehow, good humored, right up to the epilogue. I liked the characters. I liked the plot. I liked the treatment of L.A. I mean, what goes better with a noir thriller than a Day of the Dead theme? It helps that all of the magic and myth and spells and otherworldly creatures fit so seamlessly into the plot and the action that it all feels plausible and real.

So, if you want a well-written, tightly crafted classic noir, with horror/myth/magic elements that enhance but don't overwhelm the story, this is worth a serious look.

Please note that I found this book while browsing kindleunlimited freebies. I have no connection at all to either the author or the publisher of this book.

An excellent read Graves' End tells the story of Old Tom a cat possessed by the spirit of a modern day alchemist, Lia an operator (some would say a witch) and Dexter Graves a PI who was killed by Death's girlfriend 60 years ago but has just clawed his way out of the grave.

This is a modern fantasy which has a flavour of the metaphysical games played by Tim Powers in his Last Call and Earthquake Weather novels.

Rush out and buy it.... NOW!

Witches in LA ? Well the place is weird already so why not.
When Dexter digs himself out of the ground (scaring a cleaner in the process) he has to find out why he is back and just what the King of the Dead plans with young witch Lia.

It reads very well, moves fluidly and never loses the sense of humour.

Well worth the read.
