As Denver homicide detective Bryson Coventry’s frantic search for a missing woman pulls him deeper and deeper into an edgy world of voodoo and death curses, beautiful young attorney Mackenzie Lee lands an interrelated case--a case that propels both her and her client into the deadly throes of a force more sinister than either of them could have imagined.
Read A Review:

VOODOO LAWS by Jim Hansen: (2009) Do you read mysteries for the characters or for the plot? Coffee drinking serial womanizing Denver homicide detective Bryson Coventry is back with all his quirks and talents. He is frantically searching for a missing woman after finding the second member of a local law firm dead with implications of voodooism and death curses. At the same time local attorney and budding author Mackenzie Lee has her own challenge. Her newest client, Erin Asher, is convinced that she was being stalked. A man who looked like a pirate followed her during an evening of in downtown on Saturday. The same man is apparently the primary suspect in one of Coventry’s murder cases that occurred across town at the same time. Lee’s client is the suspect’s alibi, but if Lee allows her to come forward, will they be clearing the man from one murder so that he can commit a different one – that of Asher. Then there is the missing woman and the fact the Coventry has had a voodoo death curse placed on him. Oh, did I mention that Lee formerly worked with the same law firm as the two victims that are the object of Coventry’s efforts? How are they all interconnected? Bottom line – great characters in a wild plot that somehow all comes together. The Laws series just keeps getting better and better.

I have read all seven [Laws] books, and enjoyed them all. Like all the others, “Voodoo Laws” caught my attention at the first page, and left me with a question right from the beginning as to whether Coventry would actually survive this one. Not that the author would want to kill off such a good character, but the thought that Coventry might actually die had not crossed my mind previously. * * * Whether you have read all the books in the “Laws” series, or just want to pick this one up, rest assured that “Voodoo Laws” will be a fun read.

Is voodoo real? Can it actually cause people to suffer or die from a curse laid on by a priestess like Ida Wrisp when she cursed Bryson Coventry? The question is why she was doing this. Was someone she knew harmed by him?
Bryson Coventry, head of Denver's homicide unit, has a new murder to contend with--a dead attorney, found in an alley. He finds voodoo creeping into his case and death seems to follow him from city to city as he seeks answers.
Talented author Jim Michael Hansen has created another story to keep the chills crawling up your spine as you join Coventry in another case. And, yes, he's in lust again with an intriguing young woman who catches his eye from the first time they meet.
This isn't a tale for the squeamish. Lots of action and lots of fun characters to meet. You'll remember Coventry as an old friend with a slight case of never quite meeting the right girl. Could this new lady be just right for him?
And if you don't believe in voodoo, you might begin to wonder why as you read. Mystery and chills aplenty as Bryson hunts and is hunted. A story to satisfy all thriller fans. Highly recommended to readers who like new and interesting plots and characters. Enjoy. I sure did.
