Simon Kane has a lot of luck. Much of it's good as he's living off of his parent's extreme wealth. A good portion of his luck is bad though, in that mysterious creatures that only Simon can see are out to kill him. Even more alarming is that he may have more in common with these other-worldly beings than he'd like to admit. 'Bad Luck' is a thrill a minute as you ride with Simon through a world where one moment an Ogre might drown you, the next a satellite falls on your head. None of those (and m ...more

I enjoyed the tone of this book. While most occult detective fiction I've read (Felix Castor, Dresden) fall a bit more on a comedic tone, I can appreciate how this book differs. Even though I'm not a huge fan of Simon as a character yet- I'm excited to see him grow. ...more

This is a little different than I usually read. The MC is a private investigator. He also happens to have a little magic on his side. The only problem is he doesn'rt know how to use it. He has a policeman who calls him for anything "weird" that happens and a lot of weird stuff is happening. This is a pretty good book. There is a lot of action. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it.

Thrilling start to a new paranormal series

A private investigator who only accepts cases of the paranormal / supernatural, Simon Kane is an engrossing main character. The story has plenty of well developed secondary characters who all work together to create a hard to put down story. There is a lot of murder and gore, a bit of humor and a well crafted tale. I can't wait for the next installment.

Packed with enough thrills to keep me entertained from beginning to end. This was a great way to start off the series, it absolutely has me interested in reading more of Simon Kane and his fascinating world.
