Synopsis: When you're near the top of the Underworld Detection Agency, the claws really come out...
Quick thinking and loyalty have taken human Sophie Lawson a long way in the UDA—along with a healthy dose of magic immunity. But when her old boss Pete Sampson asks for help after a mysterious two-year disappearance, she's determined to find out what high-placed demon has put two ruthless werewolf killers on his tail. Of course, sucking up to her icy vampire department head and negotiating a treacherous inter-office demon battle are the kind of workplace politics that could easily get a "breather" way worse than reprimanded. And sexy fallen angel Alex is doing whatever it takes to heat up Sophie's professional cool and raise feelings she's done her best to bury. Too bad their investigation is about to uncover the Agency's darkest secrets. . .and powerful entities happy to sign one inquisitive human's pink slip in blood. . .
Review: Sophie Lawson is the only human who works at the UDA – Underworld Detection Agency. This means things aren’t always made easier for her at work. Now her old boss, Pete Sampson, who is a werewolf is back from wherever he disappeared to and needs Sophie’s help. At the same time, people are being gruesomely murdered by a werewolf and two unstoppable werewolf hunters are after Pete. Sophie believes the best in people and is working diligently to help Pete beat the contract on his life and prove his innocence in regard to the grisly murders. Yet, she’s not doing herself any favors by keeping secrets from Alex Grace, police officer and fallen angel. She just might not make it out of this one alive…
‘Under the Gun’ is a fun and exciting continuation of Sophie’s story. She’s quirky and lighthearted, but she cares very deeply for her friends and will do anything to help them. When her old boss, Pete, shows up at her door, she’s going to help him the best she can. Even if helping means having a face-to-face with the scariest werewolf hunters ever – the Du sisters. In this case, however, what Sophie doesn’t know can kill her and she isn’t ready for who the true mastermind behind these events is. The Underworld Detection Agency series reminds me a lot of the “Stephanie Plum” novels, but with a serious supernatural twist. Sophie’s courage in the face of challenges never ceases to amaze me and the dialogue is absolutely hilarious. I laughed out loud at many points, especially at Sophie’s descriptions of people and events. Never underestimate Sophie, even if she does seem naïve and non-threatening! ‘Under the Gun’ is a great, fun, and exciting book in the Underworld Detection Agency series!
