The Blade’s Memory is the fifth installment in the Dragon Blood series.
This book has something for everybody: it’s part murder/mystery; part travelogue; part romance novel; and even includes a search for a buried treasure. Here's what a reviewer said about this murder mystery: "The story flows well, and Ms Hathaway has written some interesting characters. A good, cozy mystery."
Except that a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon -- each of whom has lived among Earth's mortals for many millennia and has grown rather fond of the lifestyle -- are not particularly looking forward to the coming Rapture. If Crowley and Aziraphale are going to stop it from happening, they've got to find and kill the Antichrist (which is a shame, as he's a really nice kid). There's just one glitch: someone seems to have misplaced him. . . .
First published in 1990, Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's brilliantly dark and screamingly funny take on humankind's final judgment is back -- and just in time -- in a new hardcover edition (which includes an introduction by the authors, comments by each about the other, and answers to some still-burning questions about their wildly popular collaborative effort) that the devout and the damned alike will surely cherish until the end of all things.
Here's what reviewers are saying about this book:
She follows the clues and the mystery is solved in a satisfying way. Having recently visited New Orleans, I was intrigued by the description of the city, especially the French Quarter."
“I found the mystery interesting but also enjoyed reading of the sites in New Orleans.”
Detective Clarissa Santy is trying to solve the murder, while at the same time, she’s busy reintroducing her father to the world outside of prison, where he’s spent the past 30 years for a murder conviction. Between keeping him out of trouble, babysitting a Criminal Justice Intern from UCI, and dating again after losing her husband several years ago, her life has never seemed so complicated.
