ISBN: #  9781420111873
Genre: Urban Fantasy
They are the Others—the vampires, mages, and werewolves once thought to exist only in our imaginations. Now they’re stepping out of the shadows, and nothing in our world will ever be the same again…

In A Town Like This, Being A P.I. Can Be Murder
 Shiarra Waynest’s detective work was dangerous enough when her client base was strictly mortal. But ailing finances have forced her to accept a lucrative case that could save her firm—if it doesn’t kill her first. Shiarra has signed on to work for a high-level mage to recover an ancient artifact owned by one of New York’s most powerful vampires.

As soon as Shiarra meets sexy, mesmerizing vamp Alec Royce, she knows her assignment is even more complicated than she thought. With a clandestine anti-Other group trying to recruit her, and magi being eliminated, Shiarra needs back-up and enlists her ex-boyfriend—a werewolf whose non-furry form is disarmingly appealing—and a nerdy mage with surprising talents. But it may not be enough. In a city where the undead roam, magic rules, and even the Others aren’t always what they seem, Shiarra has just become the secret weapon in a battle between good and evil—whether she likes it or not… 

Shiarra Waynest is a Human PI who does NOT want to work anything having to do with the Others. Her business is having money issues so she decides to take a mage up on a seemingly easy case of recovering an artifact that is owned by a local, very powerful (and sexy) vampire Alec Royce. She instantly finds herself in over her head with The White Hats (an anti-other group), the vampires and even the Weres who can be controlled by the artifact. She gets help from Sara her best Friend and business partner, Arnold a Mage she has just met from The Circle that has a hidden agenda and eventually her ex boyfriend Chaz who happens to be a werewolf. They all play roles in making the story exciting, dangerous and entertaining. The action was fantastic, I love when I can lose myself in a good fight and there were many points in the book where I refused to put it down to even make dinner. Hunted By the Others will leave you far from disappointed its a MUST read!!
I gave it a 5/5 stars
