Surprisingly, mixing pantheons worked well. At least when J. Malcolm Stewart writes about them. He was able to pull from a variety of ancient and modern belief systems and write a murder mystery that was engaging and entertaining. I would love to read other books by this author. One of the frustrating parts of reading it was that it needed to be run through editing one more time.

Not for the squeamish, this debut novel effectively balances two genres and will keep ...more
