Shadows Inquiries book 2
Sylvie is back from vacation, and all she wants out of life right now is for the Magicus Mundi to leave her alone for a bit. No dead things, no mayhem, no life-and-death struggles.

Taking It Easy
Just before 2 p.m., South Beach traffic was as slow as it ever got. The sidewalks were white-hot under the June sun, and the only people walking about were red-shouldered, red-nosed tourists going puffy in the heat.

The world of Lane Robins' urban fantasy series Shadows Inquiries (written under the psuedonym of Lyn Benedict) is much like our own, with one twist. The things that go bump in the night are real.

Sometimes Sylvie Lightner wishes she had never heard of the Magicus Mundi, the supernatural world that surrounds us every day. It's almost more than one unlicensed private invesigator can handle.
