An old friend contacts Fred for help with her job at a
top scientific facility. But the night they are supposed to
meet, her friend is gunned down, the seemingly innocent victim
of a mob hit gone wrong. Although Angel and the others want
to help, they have been called upon to solve a rash of murdered
among a group of wizards. These wizards are the only ones
preventing an apocalyptic breach of the walls separating one
reality from other, more deadly worlds. Fred decides to leave
the investigation and take her friends place as a researcher
in order to uncover the truth behind her murder. But when
the worlds of scientific research and the supernatural collide,
Fred may be the only one who can solve the case and stop the
reads very much like a detective/Whodunit novel. Although
the two stories threads start off as very separate, they soon
become intertwined and our heroes have to work out who the
baddie is before they can stop them - before the walls between
the realities break down and terrible monsters walk the Earth!
(Sound similar to the end of Buffy season five anyone?)
I have to say it is a bit slow, but there's more than enough

go 'undercover' to attempt to save the world, but whilst Angel
is off trying to work out who the evil one is, Gunn has to
stay in character and wait in his room until Angel's return.
To pass the time he writes a hilarious comic book about the
Mighty Gunn, and his wimpy vampire sidekick, Angel. Gotta

fans of other sci-fi shows, in this case Farscape,
look out for a little homage to the series hidden somewhere
in the book.
in all, it's not a bad novel. The comic book scene alone makes
it worth buying.
