Fun story, fairly quick read. An interesting society where normal people are aware of the supernatural and live fairly easily together.
Two murders, six years apart, set in the White City, an alternate history Moscow where magic mixes with a vaguely steampunk-ish technology and science. Don Sebastien de Ulloa, detective and wampyr, has returned to the city with his small court, Lady Abigail Irene, a forensic sorcerer and writer, Phoebe Smith, and he is once again entangled in a murder. Like the one in the past, it involves the artist Irina. The two murders are related in more ways than that, and we follow them both as they slowly are unraveled.
