Review by Melissa Dalton Martinez:
Get ready for a thrilling ride through 1930s New York City, where magic is real and danger is lurking around every corner. In Plain Sight, the first book in the Arcane Casebook series, introduces us to the cunning and charming Alex, a gumshoe detective with a talent for solving mysteries. But this time, he’s facing a challenge unlike any other – a mysterious plague brought about by magic.

As Alex follows the clues, he discovers a thief and a legendary tome that could hold the key to stopping the deadly spell. But when he finds himself in hot water with both the police and New York’s Council of Sorcerers, he must use all his wits and limited powers to stay alive.

This noir urban fantasy will keep you on the edge of your seat with its unique blend of magic and mystery. The characters are brilliantly crafted with depth and likability that will have you rooting for the good guys and despising the villains. The narrators of the audiobook are top-notch, bringing the story to life with their incredible performances.

But it’s not just the characters that make this series so captivating. Each book has a new twist that takes the story deeper and keeps you turning the pages. And with the added element of magic, it’s not just a simple “whodunit” – it’s a “how was it done” mystery that will keep your mind working.

The Arcane Casebook series is set in the Great Depression era leading up to World War II, which adds another layer of depth to the story. It’s clear that the author has done extensive research, incorporating historical characters to create a rich and immersive environment for the reader.

Once you start reading, you won’t be able to put it down. It’s the kind of series that you can binge-read straight through, leaving you eagerly anticipating the next installment. Don’t miss out on this exhilarating and satisfying series.
