CRESCENT OF STEEL AND DARKNESS
a gen CSI: New York / Without a Trace / Hellboy novel
In this amazing novel, deftly woven together by Nina A. Smith, a
dead Metropolitan Museum guard, a missing painting-and-sculpture
conservator and a stolen scimitar which might have magical and
demonic properties bring together the worlds of CSIs, the Missing
Persons Unit and demon-hunter Hellboy from the Bureau of Paranormal
Research and Defense, in order to find out what happened at the Met,
and stop evil before it starts. Strong personalities and specific
ideas of how the investigation should be conducted, not to mention
Hellboy, a demon himself, contribute to the tense atmosphere between
the groups -- until FBI agent Martin Fitzgerald disappears, literally
into thin air. Now the cops, agents and demon-hunters must work
together to rescue him before his sacrifice sets off a chain of
events from which the world will never recover. Don't miss this

indicated the modest sign identifying WASTE MANAGEMENT
SERVICES. "I'd really like to know why."
"Frankly, so would we," Malone replied. "We got a call, too.
He claimed to be from FBI special ops. No further explanation. If
there's a task force or special unit assigned to this case, it'd be
nice to be told about it, especially considering that a member of my
teams disappeared two hours ago in the course of this investigation."
Flack's eyes narrowed coldly. "Yeah, that was fun. Now I
really, *really* want to know who called us here -- and for what."
Among the seven of them, eyes met and hands began to reach for
Detective Bonasera's gaze had gone to the door of the building;
she was the first to see it open, and a small figure grow rapidly
larger as it approached. "Looks as if we're about to find out."
