Harper Blaine is a Greywalker-walking the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. She's been hired by a university research group that's attempting to create an artificial poltergeist. But when one of the group's members is found killed, 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. (Aug.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Since her return from a brief clinical death, private investigator Harper Blaine has become a Greywalker, able to travel between the world of the living and the paranormal, or "other," world. Hired by a professor to investigate the efforts of a group of students trying to create a poltergeist to determine whether someone is faking the supernatural effects they seem to have witnessed, Harper discovers instead that they have connected with something very real. Then a student dies, apparently a homicide victim, and the Greywalker must determine whether the killer is human or something from beyond the physical world. Richardson's second supernatural mystery featuring PI Harper Blaine (after Greywalker) presents an intriguing mystery and a resourceful sleuth who grows stronger in her knowledge of her transformed self. A good addition to fantasy and mystery collections; for fans of urban fantasy and paranormal mysteries. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

Another fantastic read by Kat Richardson. If you liked Greywalker, than this is definitely for you! I love the way the heroine evolves throughout this novel. It fits so well into the supernatural/ urban fantasy genre that anyone with a thirst for this kind of Adult fiction would do themselves injustice by not reading this series!
