Love is the Bond – M.R. Sellars

Love is the Bond: A Rowan Gant Investigation
M.R. Sellars
E.M.A. Mysteries, 2005
346 pages

This is the latest Rowan Gant novel by Sellars–and is it good!!!! He’s got a good balance of psychic phenomena and mundane sleuthing this time, and it was a really well-paced work.

There are a couple of new elements; the killer in this book misuses elements of Voodoo (don’t worry–the misuse is made quite distinct from proper use). In addition, there’s a flavoring of BDSM to the story; it’s not as bad as some squicked-out reviewers have made it, and leads me to wonder where this series is going to go.

The ending is a hell of a cliffhanger, more maddeningthan any other. When the next book “All Acts of Pleasure” comes out, which should be soon, I’m picking it up ASAP!

Overall, I really enjoyed this series, and I’m glad there’ll be more to it! Highly recommended for esoteric mystery fiction, and a good, quick read to rest your brain from research and other such things.

Five pawprints out of five.
