Defending Angels - Mary Stanton A slow starter. I wasn't sure if we'd ever arrive at the heart of the mystery or the point of the book, but once the mystery of not only the murder but the history of the characters began to emerge the book went from mildly interesting to captivating. A great deal of background was offered in this outing but there is a great deal more to uncover and I found the book just a bit spookier than I imagined but only slightly so - nothing to keep you awake a night. Other than the slow start my only other complaint is that with such an interesting host of main and secondary characters I was a bit disappointed to find the love interest not only boring and pedestrian but cliche, a series like this could take some risks (think Wim Wenders' (1987) Wings of Desire) on that front and be better for it I think.
