Even Though I Knew the End by C.L. Polk
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A cool, rather richly imagined magical noir with all of the cultural setbacks (and throwbacks) intact. I liked how we got dirty with angels, semi-fallen angels, and demons while dealing with being lesbian in the pinstripe days.
All in all, it's a great mystery, hunting down a magical baddie that makes a lot more sense (and importance) with each new reveal.
Most importantly, though, it's a smooth, even charming read that tugs on the heartstrings as much as the noir entertains.
