Kanaan and Tilney was a hard book for me to get into and enjoy. The reason being that the two men didn't have the spark for a good love mystery story. It just didn't flow for me at all. The title was a big strange and the arms was a bit confusing.
I can't recommend this one because I didn't enjoy it. Some might like it for the little humor it had though.
John Tilney, praeternatural pyrokinetic and mystery author, has noticed the bottom dropping out of the market for his usual gothic fare, so he goes to Lowell Kanaan, PI, for a crash course in noir. Lowell, the cranky wolf-shifter detective, isn't sure why he agrees to let John shadow him--though it might have something to do with John's weirdly endearing honesty...and pretty lips. John thinks he's found the perfect detective novel hero in Lowell, but it isn't long before he realizes he doesn't want Lowell for his book, but for himself.
As they become entangled in a supernatural whodunnit involving the Zombie Mafia, black market body parts, and shady insurance deals, their partnership grows closer--and hotter. But when it comes down to the wire, Lowell's wolfy protective side threatens to drive John around the bend, or at least out of the office. Good thing John's as much sunshine as he is fire; hopefully, it's enough to help them catch a murderer before they end up--literally--in pieces, too.
