Witch Hunt by S.M. Reine

A brutal murder.
There are scratches on Cèsar Hawke’s arms, a discharged Glock on his coffee table, and a dead woman in his bathtub. Yeah, maybe he brought the waitress home for some fun — he was too drunk to remember it — but he knows for a fact that he didn’t kill her. He’s an agent with the Office of Preternatural Affairs. He doesn’t hurt people. He saves them.
The cops disagree. Now Cèsar is running.
The search for a shaman.
Isobel Stonecrow speaks with the dead…for the right price. She brings closure to the bereaved and heals broken hearts. But when she resurrects someone for the wrong client, she ends up on the OPA’s most wanted list.
One risky solution.
Tracking down Isobel is the last case assigned to Cèsar before he bolts. If he finds her, he can prove that he didn’t kill that waitress. He can clear his name, get his job back, and bring justice to the victim.
She’s just one witch. Cèsar has bagged a dozen witches before.
How hard can one more be?
From Goodreads.

I liked this, I liked that I did not know who the bad guys were till quite late. Cèsar Hawke runs fom the law, which means his own colleagues, to prove his innocence. But as soon as he finds out he actually did kill somebody he turns himself in, to his boss. Not everything is as it seem and when both demons, necromancer, witches and other paranormal creatures are involved it is not easy to find the culprits.
