First in a new urban fantasy series-with a bite as magical as its bark.

Mason used to be an enforcer, ensuring that suspect magic practitioners stayed in line. But now he scrapes out a living playing guitar. Good thing he has Louie, his magical...well, let's call him a dog. But there are some kinds of evil that even Louie can't sniff out. And when Mason is attacked by a supernatural assailant, he'll have to fall back on the one skill he's mastered in music and magic-improvisation.
John Levitt is the author of the Dog Days novels, an urban fantasy series inspired by Levitt's seven years as an officer in the Salt Lake City Police Department. He now splits his time between Alta, Utah, and San Fransisco, California.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A magical gumshoe, never seen that before. Heh. A magical gumshoe and his magical, but not talking, dog. What's not to love? The book is pretty good. It's the start of a series. I'm not much a music person but i suppose the musical elements in the book will appeal to some people. As I said the book is good but the general idea behind the book isn't all that original. About the only original concept in the book is the magical familiars. If you like magical gumshoes you'll like this one.

Editorial Reviews

"Jazz, scotch, and dark magic, it's all waiting around every unfamiliar corner and at the end of every shadowed alley in a world that has both bark and bite. The supernatural lives, breathes, and slithers in a San Francisco where the dog days don't just get you down; they eat you alive."
-- Rob Thurman, author of Nightlife and Moonshine
