In this delectable fantasy romp, a shape-shifting private detective with sexual identity issues hunts a serial killer preying on the Supernatural community
Who but the indomitable Piers Anthony could write a hard-boiled detective-novel-fantasy-comic thriller featuring demons, succubi, zombies, ghosts, serial murder, gender bending, and a healthy dose of good, clean sex? Anthony’s remarkable imagination has taken glorious flight once again with WereWoman — and no one does it quite like Piers Anthony!
The classy dame who walks into fledgling private eye Philemon’s office is like Venus in motion and is most definitely a Witch. But dealing with Supernaturals — or “Supes” for short — is Phil’s beat, since he himself is a shape-changing Were. And this sexy sorceress is offering him the “friendship of her thighs” to investigate a murder, so how can he possibly refuse? But the Warlock slaying in question turns out to be only the first in a series of homicides, because someone — or something — is picking off Supes like insects. Soon the search begins leading the brand-new dick into places outside the mundane realm — into a Demon amusement park, through the doors of an Incubus-Succuba dating service, and into some very sticky situations where he’ll need to undergo a supernatural sex change just to stay alive.
