The Demon and the City

[amazon_link id=”1597801119″ target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]The Demon and the City[/amazon_link] 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.
