Book one in the new Third Shift series by Snyder is, as always with a new series, packed to the rafters with world-building and character establishment. Having said that, I really enjoy it when an author throws us right into the thick of it from the very first page. It's a firm thoughtful introduction of Joe and Neha. We're immediately intuned to who and what we think they are and definitely understand the predicament.
Big Bad Wolf has so many things going for it. It's a procedural meets-mafia-meets-supernatural combination. Its well flushed out and commands the reader's attention.
I can't wait for more.
From the Cover...
In 2016, New York became a Sanctuary City for supernaturals...but things quickly spun out of control. Now, Third Shift is an elite team of operatives tasked with exposing the gritty underbelly of New York's criminal-supernatural underworld, taking down the worst of the worst and protecting human- and shifter-kind alike.
Joe Peluso has blood on his hands. But lawyer and psychologist Neha Ahluwalia is determined to help him craft a solid defense...even if she can't defend her own obsession. Because Joe took out those Russian mobsters for good reason--they were responsible for the death of his beloved foster brother. Those six bad guys were part of the ruthless clan of bear shifters who control Brooklyn's Russian mafia, so his vigilante justice has earned him countless enemies in New York's supernatural-controlled underworld, and no friends in a government that now bends to Russia at every turn.
Joe knows that creatures like him only deserve the worst. Darkness. Solitude. Punishment. But meeting Neha makes him feel human for the first time in forever. He's never wanted anything in his life like he wants Neha, and he'll break almost any rule to spend a minute alone with her. But when the Russian mob attacks the jail for payback, Joe and Neha are forced to escape. Before long they're on the run--from monsters who want him dead and from their own traitorous hearts.
