License to Ensorcell by Katherine Kerr

License to Ensorcell is a mixture of mystery, adventure, romance, and the supernatural. The main character is a psychic agent, Nola O'Grady, who is assigned to work with Ari Nathan, an aggravating agent working for Interpol, in order to solve her most recent case. It involves a serial killer, running through the streets of San Francisco, killing werewolves every chance he gets. Ari believes the man is purely crazy but Nola knows better, as her own brother was a werewolf himself before he turned up dead. Ari and Nola may frustrate each other originally, but they are forced to combine their very different talents in order to get to the bottom of this increasingly dangerous and complicated case.

I found this to be a very creative plotline, with many twists and turns and lots of suspenseful action. Each character had a unique personality and was realistic. The multitude of complex characters also helped to create a much more reasonable setting. The supernatural element was very interesting but at times could be difficult to understand. Also, there was more detail needed to fully explain the different scenery and help me picture the events taking place as I read. I would certainly recommend this book to others who love murder mysteries and psychic elements, especially people who enjoy very intricate plots. Overall, I found this story to be very captivating and full of rich dialogue, and I enjoyed reading it.
