Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died-for two minutes. Now she's a Greywalker-walking the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And she's discovering that her new abilities are landing her all sorts of "strange" cases.
In the days leading up to Halloween, Harper's been hired by a university research group that is attempting to create an artificial poltergeist. The head researcher suspects someone is faking the phenomena, but Harper's investigation reveals something else entirely-they've succeeded.
And when one of the group's members is killed in a brutal and inexplicable fashion, Harper must determine whether the killer is the ghost itself, or someone all too human.
It’s just, I don’t know. It’s a book I never thought I’d truly like and unfortunately I wasn’t wrong.
It’s unfortunately because it’s one of those books (series) that should be—and most likely is liked by those that read into it. That like this type of book.
I say this mostly because she’s a good writer the way the story line sits. The way it flows on the paper...it all makes sense, it all works. It’s interesting, fast and gets down to the point quickly, let’s you think and try to work it out ahead of the book and yet you can’t, you need more info and she gives it to you.
This is the series that showed me that I haven’t any interest in crime novels. I thought that I would, come on, all the shows I love, watch obsessively are crime shows (Castle, NCIS, Criminal Minds, Closer...) but I just can’t read them.
I think it’s the whole day to read them when a half hour or hour is much better. Really, I’m not sure why but I just can’t find full interest.
Now this is not to say that once I had the book in my hand that I could stop reading it, ‘cause I couldn’t. The problem—it was a boring read. I just don’t have any interest in the details—the Grey.
I found it....uninteresting and I think it’s mostly because of the fact that
Shit I’m just repeating myself.
Let’s drop this shit and talk about this actual book.
It’s about what the name says only it was never meant to be real just a study of people by an ass of a psychologist.
A lot of it’s about the fact that he hired Harper so that he could blame her for his....spending or false working. Whatever it is, she’s not liking it and even more the people in the group are making the ghost into something real and destructive, but who’s the killer?
I’d tell you but then that be like seeing the end of the show. Who’d want to read something after that?
It’s.....yeah. If I go on we’ll just be going over the same crap I’ve talked about above. So I’ll leave you with this....if it’s your thing, crime with a paranormal twist than this is the book you should check out. It’s written well, and Harper is the type of female character you can like, al lot—honestly if I could find even a slight bit of interest I’d keep reading just for her she’s a great character!
