Supernatural beings are willing to fight for their legal rights!
Since the Summer of Love, the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco has been known for attracting weird and unconventional souls, but things got even stranger when the monsters moved in.
Magic has returned to the world and with it a host of supernatural creatures—not just vampires and ghosts, but sentient gargoyles, ghouls, sprites, faeries, and more. The frightened citizenry, holier-than-thou bigots, headline-seeking reporters, and harried police refer to them as OTs (Other-Than-Humans), but Thomas Brock and Evelyn Love believe even supernatural creatures have legal rights.
Delve into their case files for a genre-bending mix of mystery, horror, suspense, thrills, courtroom drama, and romance. The city’s OT element is sometimes malevolent, sometimes misunderstood, and often discriminated against. Brock and Love represent them all, dead, undead, or alive—whatever the case, whatever the species.
**Winner of three prestigious Silver Falchion Awards **
for mysteries, thrillers, and suspense novels: Best Fantasy, Best Urban Fantasy, and Best Multi-Genre Novel.
Thomas Brock and Evelyn Love are attorneys who crusade for the rights of OTs—Other-Than-Humans. Their clients include ghosts, gargoyles, vampires, and things that have not yet been given names. The city’s OT element is sometimes malevolent, sometimes misunderstood, and often discriminated against. Brock and Love represent them, whatever the case, whatever the species. Magic hangs heavy in San Francisco, and danger and intrigue is as thick as the fog around the Golden Gate Bridge.
Love-Haight is a comedy, locked within a mystery, hidden in a horror story… Wonderfully clever, stylish, and ghoulish. Delightfully twisted fun! —William C. Dietz, New York Times bestselling creator of The Legion of the Damned
Making the freakiest burg in the nation ten times freakier is a considerable achievement. —Glen Cook, bestselling author of The Black Company series
About the Authors:
Jean Rabe writes with dogs wrapped around her feet. She wears mismatched clothes and 18-year-old worn-out (but seriously comfortable) sandals to work. When the weather is fine she writes on her back porch. Jean loves summer.
She calls herself a mutt because she writes bits of this and bits of that, not sticking to one genre. She writes mostly mysteries, but also urban fantasy, high fantasy, and sometimes science fiction.
She began getting published when in the sixth grade, studied journalism at Northern Illinois University, then went to work as a news reporter…eventually for Scripps Howard, where she managed their Western Kentucky bureau. Getting itchy feet, she moved to Wisconsin and went to work for TSR, Inc., the then-producers of the Dungeons & Dragons game. She dipped her itchy feet into the fiction pool and wrote Dragonlance novels for several years. Now she’s back in Illinois, surrounded by train tracks that offer music to write by. And there are plenty of dogs in the neighborhood to provide an accompaniment.
She is a recipient of the Faust, the grand master award of the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers, and the Illinois Author Project’s Soon-to-be Famous Award. She’s won three Silver Falchion awards from Killer Nashville, with co-author Donald J. Bingle. Jean has also been on the USA Today’s Bestseller list several times.
She’s written more than forty fantasy, mystery, and adventure novels (including some ghosted projects), more short stories than she’s bothered to count, and edited magazines and anthologies. She is a member of the International Association of Media Tie-In Writers (IAMTW), and the International Thriller Writers (ITW). Her website: http://www.jeanrabe.com.
When writing, she listens to classical guitar and 60s rock. And at every good opportunity she tosses tennis balls for her cadre of dogs.
