Dances With Werewolves Part 1 - Declan Finn - Williams and Miller Book 4

Dances With Werewolves: Part 1
Williams and Miller Book 4
Declan Finn

First I listed this volume as Williams and Miller Book 4, that is not official, but Too Secret Service is a story in three parts and this is the first of two stories in this arc with the same characters. I love the three volumes in that story and this one is just as good. The different is Too Secret Service is available as three eBooks or in an Omnibus single edition. This series is two stories but the Omnibus edition is available as both eBook and in print.

I got on a Declan Finn Kick last year and have been reading about 1 a week since. I have read 34 books by Declan Finn and 33 of them in the last 10 months. I have greatly enjoyed books in several other series. This is book one of two in the second Williams and Miller series, that I am aware of. These were published a few years ago. Both the Saint Tommy and the White Ops series are greatly entertaining, and I cannot wait for the Pius trilogy of 5 books to be back in print. I am now working through his back catalogue. The first trilogy with these characters was a surprising story, with lots of action, and adventure. This one takes it to a whole new level by adding the supernatural. 

I am currently cycling through a few of Finn’s series and just decided this one was up next, I had read it was related to the other series but I was not aware how closely. The description of this story is:

“Secret Service Agent Wayne Williams is dead.

But he has to keep busy somehow.

When a coven of witches reports a threat to the President of the United States, it's the sort of threat that must be investigated. But it sounds like a vacation for Wayne.

CIA Assassin Catherine Miler is on a mission to kill Baron Samedi," a Prime Minister sacrificing American Tourists.

Author Matthew Kovach is looking for his own version of Derry Maine.

All three are about to find themselves embroiled in San Francisco pagans, want to be vampires, pharmaceutical zombies, and New Orleans.

And all three have to survive their consultants on this case -- the Kraft Brothers.”

Williams and Miller are great characters, and the supporting cast of family, friends, and coworkers are very well written. The characters are part of what I enjoy so much about Finn’s novels, the wonderfully written characters and the excellent action. At the beginning of this one Williams and Miller start off on separate missions in different parts of the world. But soon the similarities of their cases draw them to the same city and tracking the same evil.

This was a great read with Finn’s usual twists! I really enjoyed this book and look forward to the second part. This was an excellent read. Another great read from Finn’s masterful pen.
