A modern day PI story set in a high school for wizards, full of twists, turns, and regrets

This book captures the experience of high school, as well as and the perils of adding magic to that mix, perfectly. That it also works in a classic noir tale with a hard-drinking, self-destructive PI at the same time is truly impressive. The characters and their paths to growth, or lack thereof, really elevate this magical mystery into a gripping read that is more than mashed together fantasy and detective novel tropes. Give it a try if you'd like a PI story with a twist or a more grounded take on fantasy.
