Cèsar is your average witch working to protect the average citizen from the darker denizens of the world (or not of this world if it is called for). He's got some talent, some smarts, and based on the reactions of nearly every woman he encounters, isn't bad on the eyes, which is fortunate because he needs every edge he can get. All he knows is he woke up after what must have been a wild night to find a dead woman in his bathtub, and he can't remember last night but the evidence is strongly against him. So it's a race and against the clock and the system as he tries to prove his innocence, uncovering some unsettling corruption in the process.
Witch Hunt has decent pacing without any really strong tension. The the story has some predictable plot points, but overall it's played out with a close hand. Some hints at romance or at least some steamy encounters further along in the series, but no consummation of that teaser just yet.
