The Dirk and Steele Agency provides a home base for agents with paranormal gifts.
These are an elite group of shape-shifters, mind-controllers, telepathics, clairvoyants and electrokinetics. Immersed in a dark world, they attempt to clean up the sexual filth, betrayals, and corruption. These social misfits seeking to right wrongs cannot possibly live their lives within the throngs of mankind without being detected by drug lords or human traffickers.
Blue Perrineau is one of these special people, ordered by his estranged father to locate
his half-brother, Daniel. The elderly, wealthy, Felix Perrineau is dying of cancer and wishes to settle his vast estate with his benefactors ( or so he says). The “boys”
both bear a resemblance to their father; when Blue finally locates Daniel, they both
realize the other is his brother. Raised apart, Blue and Daniel both despise their father for the despot he is and his apparent lack of affection for either of them.
A lovely shape-shifter, Iris, enters the fray with her circus family. Someone is making attempts to kill Iris. Blue will not leave her unprotected or acknowledge his brother’s
existence. Both Blue and Daniel will become fond of Iris.
Ms. Liu has a startling imagination and her work is well-developed, emotionally evocative, and characterizations are both above the norm - the “bad guy” is one you will love to hate! A fresh newcomer we are sure to see more of.
Eye of Heaven: A Dirk & Steele Adventure promises to bring delight and merriment to the reader,
as well as a little bit of naughty fun with the sex scenes. Marjorie M. Liu continues to delight fans of the Regency era with vivid accounts of dress and form. Although this is my first Marjorie M. Liu novel, it definitely will not be the last; I would love to read the remaining tales of the Merry Widows club. And read more of those racy scenes!
