She’s as tough as anything haunting Chicago’s streets. But to deal with an inhuman power that won’t stay buried, this FBI agent needs help that comes at an immortal price…

Jackie Rutledge has seen her share of supernatural killers. But her latest murder case is what recurring nightmares are made of. Brutally exsanguinated human victims, vanishing-into-the-ether evidence, and a city on the edge of panic mean that she and her psychic partner, Laurel, are going to need more than just backup …

So Jackie is fine with any help rugged P.I. Nick Anderson can give—even if that includes the impish ghost and sexy vampire who make up his team. But Nick is hiding secrets of his own. And Jackie’s investigation has plunged them both into a vengeful game reaching back centuries—and up against a malevolent force hungry for more than just victory…

A great Urban Fantasy (Saturday, April 23, 2011)
Reviewer: Nikki

Welcome to Chicago. But be aware, this isn't the modern day Chicago you may know. Have you known Chicago to be tormented by supernatural beings? Is it an every day thing when vampires, psychics and more are part of the FBI, police, and more? In J. N. Duncan's Deadworld, yes, that is the norm.

The newest case for agent Jackie Rutlidge and partner Laurel is not the every day norm, either. The killings are coming from an evil, angry ghost. And to help them out is Nick Anderson.

Deadworld is a great modern urban fantasy start to what looks like a new series. The writing is fresh, filled with witty humor, and some dark ghostly situations that kept me engaged and hooked. Urban fantasy is a hot market right now and I feel that Deadworld fits in well, but stands out on it's own, too.

Like sassy heroines that are great leaders? Deadworld is a book you will enjoy.
