Hidden Things

Hidden Things - Doyce Testerman

I'm still not sure what to say about this book. It felt like American Gods swirled together with early Anita Blake. Spunky female detective gets tangled up in supernatural weirdness. I liked our protagonist though. While she fit the urban fantasy heroine roll, she felt human. A strong woman, who makes mistakes but isn't stupid. I particularly enjoyed it when she would do those things we wish characters would do more often (ie. mace the creepy guy following you around rather than talk to him). While I liked the ideas and the protagonist this book was still missing something for me though. Perhaps it was that it felt like it wandered for too long in the middle, then rushed at the end to come together very neatly. That said I would recommend it. Also: Doyce Testerman is a super cool guy.
