Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"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."

Review:

"This fast-moving tale boasts lots of action, a complex plot, and meaty characters, both new and old." Booklist

Synopsis:

Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died—for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker, treading the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And shes discovering that her new abilities are landing her all sorts of “strange” cases.

 

When a comatose woman suddenly wakes up and starts painting scenes shes never witnessed, with a skill shes never had, medical science has no explanation. As more bizarre phenomena manifest, including mysterious writing appearing on the patients skin and strange voices issuing from her mouth, even her doctors start to wonder whether the woman may be possessed.

 

Frustrated, frightened, and at the end of her rope, the patients sister reluctantly turns to Harper Blaine to discover who—or what—is occupying her sisters body. As Harper digs into this case of apparent possession, she discovers other patients struck with the same mystifying afflictions and a disturbing connection to one of the most gruesome episodes in Washingtons history....
