Series Info:The 1st book in the Occult Crimes Investigations series.
Meet Stan Markowski of the Scranton PD's Occult Crimes Unit
"Like the rest of America, Scranton's got an uneasy 'live and let unlive' relationship with the supernatural. But when a vamp puts the bite on an unwilling victim, or some witch casts the wrong kind of spell, that's when they call me.
"My name's Markowski. I carry a badge.
"Also, a crucifix, some wooden stakes, a big vial of holy water, and a 9mm Beretta loaded with silver bullets."
Praise and Reviews:
"Hard Spell deals with hardened professionals looking for supernatural things hiding under rocks, and then dragging them out and giving them a good kicking. The cops act like real cops, the vampires act like real vampires, and the monsters aren't messing about. The plot twists and turns like a twisty turny thing, and moves like a weasel on speed. The real things feel real, and the supernatural things feel like they might be. The prose is a joy to read, and the whole thing was more fun than is probably legal."- Simon R Green
"I enjoyed every page of Hard Spell. If Sam Spade and Jack Fleming were somehow melted together, you'd get Stan Markowski. I can't wait to see what Gustainis does next."- Lilith Saintcrow
"The plot bounds along faster than Usain Bolt being chased by a rottweiler. It doesn't pull any punches either and puts the protagonists through seven levels of Hell before the story plays out to the powerful and rewarding ending. 5*****"- SFBook.com
