#186 - "Unholy Magic" by Stacia Kane

For Chess Putnam, finding herself near-fatally poisoned by a con psychic and then stopping a murderous ghost is just another day on the job. As an agent of the Church of Real Truth, Chess must expose those looking to profit from the world’s unpleasant little poltergeist problem—humans filing false claims of hauntings—all while staving off any undead who really are looking for a kill. But Chess has been extra busy these days, coping with a new “celebrity” assignment while trying on her own time to help some desperate prostitutes.
Someone’s taking out the hookers of Downside in the most gruesome way, and Chess is sure the rumors that it’s the work of a ghost are way off base. But proving herself right means walking in the path of a maniac, not to mention standing between the two men in her life just as they—along with their ruthless employers—are moving closer to a catastrophic showdown. Someone is dealing in murder, sex, and the supernatural, and once again Chess finds herself right in the crossfire.
My rating: 4.5 of 5
My thoughts on the book:
I enjoyed this one as much as Unholy Ghosts. The story continues a few months after Unholy Ghosts. I don't know what to say about the book without including spoilers, except that it's really great series & I'll definitely read City of Ghosts soon because I want to know what will happen next! I also want to mention that Lex annoyed me in the previous book, he didn't anymore, but I don't really like him! We learn more about Chess & about Terrible & you can't help but love them both! I highly recommend it!
