Publisher Comments:

HISTORY HAS A WAY OF REPEATING ITSELF, EVEN FOR TELEPATHS.…
 
As a Level Eight telepath, I am the best police interrogator in the department. But I’m not a cop—I never will be—and my only friend on the force, Homicide Detective Isabella Cherabino, is avoiding me because of a telepathic link I created by accident.
 
And I might not even be an interrogator for much longer. Our boss says unless I pull out a miracle, I’ll be gone before Christmas. I need this job, damn it. It’s the only thing keeping me sane.
 
Parts for illegal Tech—the same parts used to bring the world to its knees in the Tech Wars sixty years ago—are being hijacked all over the city. Plus Cherbino's longtime nemesis, a cop killer, has resurfaced with a vengeance. If I can stay alive long enough, I just might be able to prove my worth, once and for all...

 

Review:

"An unnamed telepathic hero battles bad guys and his addiction to super-drug Satin in this tightly written futuristic detective story set in an alternate Atlanta. After the devastating Tech Wars, Ameri­cans developed a healthy paranoia regarding both seemingly sentient machinery and humans who can control others' minds. The narrator, a level eight telepath, commands wary respect from his compatriots at the DeKalb County Police Department despite his preference for self-isolation and conflicted feelings about his drug habit. Det. Isabella Cherabino works alongside the hero to solve a string of serial killings that might be linked to the Telepaths' Guild. As clues to the murders surface, the hero's and Cherabino's pasts are also illuminated, offering a psychological analysis of each character that serves to strengthen and carry along the plot. Their burgeoning attraction adds zest and ups the hero's personal stakes as he tracks the killer's steps while examining his own life. This crisp debut marks Hughes as a writer to watch. Agent: Alexandra Machinist, Janklow & Nesbit Associates. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Nothing ruins a romantic evening like a brawl with lowlifes—especially when one of them later turns up dead and my date, Detective Isabella Cherabino, is the #1 suspect. My history with the Atlanta PD on both sides of the law makes me an unreliable witness, so while Cherabino is suspended, Im paying my bills by taking an FBI gig.    

 

Ive been hired to play telepathic bodyguard for Tommy, the ten-year-old son of a superior court judge in Savannah presiding over the murder trial of a mob-connected mogul. After an attempt on the kids life, the Feds believe hes been targeted by the businessmans “associates.”

 

Turns out, Tommys a nascent telepath, so Im trying to help him get a handle on his Ability. But it doesnt take a mind reader to see that theres something going on with this kids parents thats stressing him out more than a death threat…

 

Synopsis:

A RUTHLESS KILLER—
OUT OF SIGHT, OUT OF MIND
 
I used to work for the Telepath’s Guild before they kicked me out for a drug habit that wasn’t entirely my fault. Now I work for the cops, helping Homicide Detective Isabella Cherabino put killers behind bars.
 
My ability to get inside the twisted minds of suspects makes me the best interrogator in the department. But the normals keep me on a short leash. When the Tech Wars ripped the world apart, the Guild stepped up to save it. But they had to get scary to do it—real scary.
 
Now the cops don’t trust the telepaths, the Guild doesn’t trust me, a serial killer is stalking the city—and I’m aching for a fix. But I need to solve this case. Fast. I’ve just had a vision of the future: I’m the next to die.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Guest Reviewer - Tanya C:

Clean by Alex Hughes gets off to a good start right away.

I really enjoyed the way the main male character and Cherabino interacted. I also loved that the storyline mainly focused on solving crimes and that there were so many characters with different talents that involved using their minds.

The amount of suspense had me hooked, and I know that I will be reading more books written by Alex Hughes.

There was also tons of action, and the characters were incredibly well developed; each character had plenty of flaws, which is just one thing that makes for a good book.

LITERAL ADDICTION gives Clean 4 Skulls and would recommend it.
