Psychic Agent Nola O'Grady isn't sure returning to San Francisco, and living near her unusual family, is a good idea. Her job, with a psychic agency so obscure even the CIA doesn't know it exists, can be perilous, and she's afraid of the relatives getting involved.
Then the Agency saddles her with Israeli secret agent Ari Nathan, and she has a bigger problem on her hands, because tact and compromise are not Ari's strong points. Their mission is to track down a serial killer obsessed with werewolves. He sees them everywhere and shoots whenever he thinks he has one in his sights. Ari assumes the man's psychotic, but in truth he's murdering actual werewolves. Nola should know. Her younger brother Pat, a lycanthrope, was the first victim.
Can Nola's psychic talents and Ari's skill with guns keep them alive long enough to unravel the greater mystery behind the killings? Can they save the werewolves and the world while stopping Nola's family from running headlong into danger?

Katharine Kerr first became involved in the field of fantasy through role-playing games, becoming so intrigued that she began writing articles for gaming magazines, and for some time was a contributing editor to Dragon magazine. This interest soon led her into the field of fantasy writing, with her first Deverry novel, Daggerspell, appearing in 1986. Since then, she has written fourteen more Deverry novels, of which The Silver Mage is the latest, as well as other fantasy and science fiction novels. Her Deverry novels have hit the London Times and the Australian bestseller lists.From Publishers Weekly:
Repetitive urban fantasy conceits—a strong woman with a hot male sidekick, secret organizations, and almost limitless psychic powers—undermine this quick-moving series launch. San Francisco psychic Nola O'Grady uses her mysterious oracular and clairvoyant skills at the behest of her anonymous handlers, who work for a supersecret U.S. government agency. Directed to work with attractive Interpol officer Ari Nathan, she must discover who is using silver bullets to commit a series of murders. The killings may be connected to al-Qaeda, as well as to the death of Nola's brother Patrick. This complex investigation is almost as daunting as coping with her quirky Catholic family. Breakneck plotting, punning, and romance make for a mostly fast, fun read, but unembellished writing, simplistic characterization, and clumsy handling of religious elements nullify the story's original qualities.
