Vanished: Greywalker #4 (A Greywalker Novel)by Kat Richardson
Synopses & Reviews
The toughest case yet for Greywalker and P.I. Harper Blaine, "a great heroine" (New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris), has arrived.
Harper Blaine was your average small-time P.I. until she died — for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker — walking the line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And she's discovering that her new abilities are landing her in all sorts of "strange cases."
But for Harper, her own case may prove the most difficult to solve. Why did she — as opposed to others with near-death experiences — become a Greywalker? When Harper digs into her own past, she unearths some unpleasant truths about her father's early death as well as a mysterious puzzle. Forced by some very demanding vampires to take on an investigation in London, she soon discovers her present troubles in England are entangled with her dark past back in Seattle — and her ultimate destiny as a Greywalker.
"In Richardson's fierce fourth Greywalker novel (after 2008's Underground), Harper Blaine, Seattle's paranormal PI, receives a chilling phone call from Cary Malloy, her boyfriend who died eight years ago. He warns Harper 'there're things...waiting for you' and tells her to look into her past. For Harper, that means flying to California to visit her overbearing mother and go through the papers of her father, who killed himself after his receptionist's suspicious death. Harper finds a suicide note addressed to her and disturbing journal entries about supernatural happenings. Once back in Seattle, Harper agrees to help local vampire Edward Kammerling fight off some London vampires, leading to a spirited smack-down with old foes. Richardson continues to develop strong, intriguing plots, and fans will enjoy learning about Harper's childhood and seeing some of her literal ghosts put to rest."
