"Delightful supernatural private investigator romance"
Private Investigator Ross Maxwell seeks evidence against
human predators in which the cops are stymied. Currently
he chases serial killer Donald Arnott. Ross cuts a hole
big enough for a dog to fit through in the perimeter fence
surrounding the property of his target. Ross shapeshifts
into a wolf and passes through the breach he created.
However, bad luck occurs, as Donald happens to be outside.
He shoots Ross, who manages to escape in spite of the wound.
The next day genetic research scientist Megan Sheridan of
Bio Gen Labs visits client Ross at his home to do a work up
on him. She finds him feverish from his wound so she
cleans the wound, provides the antibiotic that he happens
to need, and puts on fresh bandages. As he heals Ross
worries because he knows Arnott stalks him, the Montgomery
County, Maryland police suspect him in a murder
investigation, and the CEO of Megan's company is acting
strange. Still, Ross is angriest with Megan for not
fleeing him because wolves mate for life, something he
fears after what his dad did to his mom.
Using the premise that lycanthropy is a genetic disorder,
KILLING MOON is a delightful supernatural private
investigator romance starring two charming lead
characters. The plot moves at a rapid pace though Arnott
showing restraint seems off kilter. Ross is a wonderful
protagonist struggling with his need for his life mate and
his fear of the harm he will do to her. Megan is a
courageous counterpoint who brings out the best in the
beast. Sub-genre fans will relish Rebecca York's tale that
makes a human species of werewolves.
