My closest book this week is Spirit Dances by C. E. Murphy. This is the sixth book in the Walker Papers urban fantasy series. Joanne Walker is a police detective and shaman. The series explores her journey to learn about her magic and recounts her encounters with a variety of magical creatures and problems.

"Walker, Holliday, you're up. Homicide in Ballard, probably domestic violence. Be there yesterday."
Page 56, sentence 5:
I knew my last name. I really did. It was just that the one on my birth certificate and the one I used in day-to-day life weren't the same.


  1. I like mysteries with a little bit of magic playing out in them. Having one of the detectives imbued with these powers makes it very interesting. I like the 56, too, and now I'm curious!


  2. The beginning wasn't that great, but I laughed at the one from page 56 :-)

  3. Hi!
    Sounds so intriguing. Love the book cover. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  4. I wonder why the use of different names... what're they hiding???

    Thanks for participating!

  5. Short and clear orders. Seems like something bad happened. I like it.
