Poltergeist: Greywalker #2 (A Greywalker Novel)by Kat Richardson
Great read! The hero of Kat Richardson’s new series is a tough, sassy, street-smart female detective who has one little problem: she died for two minutes and is now a Greywalker. Harper Blaine is able to move between our world and the world of the paranormal, introducing ghosts, vampires, and dark otherworld beings into her life. In the second book of the Greywalker series, Harper explores her new talent as she tries to stop a murderous poltergeist, apparently created by a research group at a local university. Think Harry Dresden, without the wizardry.
Synopses & Reviews
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.
"'Richardson's clever ghost-busting follow-up to her solid urban fantasy debut (2006's Greywalker) finds psychic Seattle PI Harper Blaine investigating a deadly lab-made spook. Pacific Northwest University professor and psychologist Gartner Tuckman is trying to replicate the results of an actual '70s Canadian psychokinesis experiment by the Owen group, whose participants appeared to create a poltergeist. Tuckman's assistant, Mark Lupoldi, provides fake phenomena to encourage the subjects' belief in their psychic abilities, but soon the experiment begins producing off-the-charts evidence of an actual specter. Tuckman suspects a participant of meddling with the results and hires Blaine to investigate. When Lupoldi is murdered, Blaine consults a number of experts, including a former vampire client, before slipping into the Grey spirit world to track the thought-entity who might be responsible. Richardson's view of the paranormal has a nice technological twist and features intriguing historical notes that lift this whodunit a cut above the average supernatural thriller.'
