An Import of Intrigue by Marshall Ryan Maresca (November 1, 2016 by DAW)
Marshall Ryan Maresca has been a busy author keeping up with two series set in his world of Maradaine. Although I’ve enjoyed both, I have to give a slight edge to the Maradaine Constabulary novels because I’ve always been a sucker for stories starring lady detectives!
The neighborhood of the Little East is a collision of cultures, languages, and traditions, hidden away in the city of Maradaine. A set of streets to be avoided or ignored. When a foreign dignitary is murdered, solving the crime falls to the most unpopular inspectors in the Maradaine Constabulary: exposed fraud Satrine Rainey, and uncircled mage Minox Welling.
With a murder scene deliberately constructed to point blame toward the Little East, Rainey is forced to confront her former life, while Welling’s ignorance of his own power threatens to consume him. And these few city blocks threaten to erupt into citywide war unless the constabulary solves the case.”
