Makenna Fraser is having lunch with Rake Danescu. A lunch
she didn't tell her partner Ian about. She is humiliated
annoyed to see Ian and Kylie, another co-worker, at a table
in the restaurant. During the lunch, a man goes crazy
insisting there are supernatural creatures there.
While Makenna is interviewed by the police they learn about
a new drug called Brimstone; Brimstone allows normal
people to see the supernatural creatures who populate the
city of New York.
Ian and Makenna are called to the death of a drug lord; an
elf whow is now missing his heart. As a seer for the SPI,
Makenna has seen many abnormal deaths, but this is unusual
even for the SPI. Even more unusual is that there is no
evidence of an exit by normal means. Worse, when Makenna
looks at a wall of the crime scene she sees a portal.
Since this isn't a skill she ever possessed before, she is
concerned about this new ability.
THE BRIMSTONE DECEPTION is the third book in the SPI
series. Ms. Shearin has created a world which combines the
natural and the supernatural seamlessly. Her readers wait
avidly for her next release, knowing the story will be
engrossing and entertaining. THE BRIMSTONE DECEPTION meets
expectations. Watching Rake's attempts to seduce Makenna
while Ian glowers at him, is so much fun for the reader.
The story is complicated keeping the reader guessing about
the identity of the new drug dealer who is taking out the
competition. The end has a twist which leaves the reader
with a promise of more to come.

Iâ€™m Makenna Fraser, seer for the SPI. And the collateral
damage caused by Brimstone is something Iâ€™d like to unsee:
dead drug dealers missing their heartsâ€”and souls. Because
your local pusher doesnâ€™t stand a chance against the new
cartel muscling its way into New York. And since the drug
can only be produced with magic and molten brimstone fresh
from Hell, that means a rift to the underworld is open
somewhere in the city.
And whenâ€”not ifâ€”the cartel loses control of it, well...
