Fun, fun, fun!! Yes, that’s exactly what you get when you read a book in the PPD series, and this latest in the NYPPD series portion is nothing but pure fun. I adore Bethany, and I love the trouble she always seems to get into. The relationship she has with her cohorts is extremely entertaining, and I laugh out loud when I read this book. Great writing plus a book you can’t put down equals an afternoon passing very quickly. If you love fun, non-stop action books, give this one a try! I do recomm ...more

Great characters and plenty of snark.

Savage Claws is an entertaining read that I thoroughly enjoyed. I'm seeing a lot more John P. Logsdon and Ben Zackheim in my future.

Bethany the Waretiger is becoming an excellent PPD officer.

Bethany is becoming quite the PPD officer, if only Shakespear would show he appreciates her. Her goblin bodyguards are great if a tad secretive. Love the vampire and he has secrets he needs to share. Excellent addition to the PPD stories.

kindle unlimited, Logsdon and a different co-conspirator/writer than his Ononokin etc ones, except for one of the series just can't get into for whatever reason, the rest are coming along, one new one should be out soon if remember right, so unlike other 'universes' where it's hit and miss on which co-writer/series and/or if even have any interest in most of them, this one seems to be coming along fine. So far there is Las Vegas, Netherworld, Southeast Asia, Seattle, Shadow, New York, Badlands, ...more

Look out there’s A tiger on your tail

The second instalment sees Bethany hot on the tail of the Hunter a hired killer, who is knocking off wizards and stealing their bodies. What links this to the kidnapping of Mike the weretiger and the stealing of one of his claws. Max and Bethany follow the clues and the line of dead wizards, will they track down the person or persons behind it all.
Another fantastic PPD book from the brilliant minds of John Logsdon and Ben Zackheim. A roaringly great fun rid

Wizards and Tigers and Goblins, oh my...

How do you follow your first big case as a rookie? Simple you go after the mob! As Rookie PPD officer and weretiger, Bethany Black, delves deeper into the mystery surrounding her friend,Mike’s, kidnapping, she finds things even more complicated then she first believed. Add to that a new enemy, aptly named The Hunter, and Bethany has got more than she can handle on her own. Let’s hope she can suppress that famous tiger pride and survive this next adventure

Bethany Black is back and still coming to terms with being a rookie on the PPD and one of two remaining weretigers on the planet. This time around Bethany has learned some of the ropes and is even working on getting along with her partner, which is no easy feat. There is plenty of action and several interesting plot twists as Bethany and her team try to track down the source of the Blood Claw ritual. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens next! ...more

Bethany Black is at ger best! This book is awesome!

Savage Claws is intense and full of twists and turns. Bethany Black is a fierce, strong, and amazing heroine. She continues to try to fit into her role as a PPD officer and make a difference. Her character continues to grow stronger and I admired her very much. The story caught and held my attention all the way to the end. It's a story full of magic, surprises, and laughter. I can't wait to see what she does next.

Excellence ahead be a ware!

Another great tail about our favourite WareTiger Cop as again she tries to survive her time as a rookie whilst sinister forces are at work because of her heritage.

No spoilers but some great reveals about a few of the characters and I'm loving the Max and Black interactions.
Great page turner and another worthy addition to a rapidly expanding PPD universe .
Feb 15, 2019 rated it it was amazing
Bethany Black one of two remaining genuine weretigers who happens to be a PDP officer and her pixie partner Max run riot in NYC as they battle the Mob. Her hilarious and all too authentic Mob bodyguards Bob and Joe get most of the laughs and are sworn in to office but don't worry there are plenty magic moments throughout with Granny G and Sir Pickle please.
Not the best ending I have read from JPL but it still leaves me wanting the next BB book

Love it,can't wait for the story to progress. Bethany is a scream and her relationship with Max is progressing nicely. Her two bodyguards Bob and Joe are hilarious. Great storyline as always and what a cracking read, I read it in one sitting, I couldn't put it down!The insults that fly as always laugh out loud. More Granny G and Sir Pickle please, great characters both begging for a novella. ...more

Back to Black!

This is the 2nd instalment of the Bethany Black, weretiger and PPD rookie, story and it keeps getting better. It is full of action, sarcasm and laughs but also has an engaging storyline and I am being drawn deeper into this book with the expansion of the individual characters’ stories. I’m sure you’ll enjoy this book too. Highly recommended.

Bethany is definitely learning the perils of getting what you always wanted, and the joys of partnership - her growing pains as an officer of the PPD and the snippy repartee with Max are pure comedy gold.

This book has action, comedy, a car (trust me that this has meaning once you've read the book), and a staring contest that would make Conan O'Brien weep! Laugh out loud funny! Be prepared to explain what was so funny to whoever is around as you read it. ...more

Bethany is developing into a fascinating character. She isn’t perfect which makes reading about her experiences as she learns and grows fun. And my favorite phrase is “The Stupid Moron Spell”. I am also looking forward to finding out more about Sir Pickle

Great Story!

The NYPPD is a trip! I'm glad to see Bethany Black gaining some traction with her peers there! The authors catch the essence of how women are treated in predominately male occupations quite well.
Highly recommended!

The plot thickens

Welcome to the NYPPD, where weretiger Bethany Black and the rest of the team are dealing with murdered wizards, hobgoblin and a hit man who may be immortal. It is a great read.

Bethany Black is back. This time, she, her partner Max and her goblin bodyguards are on the trail of whomever stole a were tiger claw. I loved seeing the growth of the main characters as their personalities all start to blend together. She is an excellent addition to the PPD world

Though not as good as book one, it was still a good book and I will read book three. The plot seemed to get diluted at times and just rambled.
The Adventure Continues

Agent Black is getting acclimated to life in the NY PPD and working with her partner Max. They are still looking for the missing wizard and suddenly deaths starts happening all over, complicating the case.

This collaboration is a great continuation to the series. I am loving the interaction between the characters and the ongoing case.
