The Demon and the City

The Demon and the City is the second book in Liz Williams’s Detective Inspector Chen series. It follows the demon Zhu Irzh’s investigation of the killing of the child of a rich family and the plot to really screw the world up that she had gotten involved with. I really like these books because they’re a quick read, with well written characters and plots that aren’t transparent. It’s also nice to see a different (read non-western) theme, instead of always drawing from european legends and mythos.
