In Seattle private investigator Harper Blaine expected an apology and a check from her client, but instead he hammered her head with his fists and slammed it against the doorjamb before completing his beating of the sleuth. A few days later Harper awakens in the hospital where Dr, Skelleher informs her she had died for two minutes before they managed to bring her back.--------------- Nothing is the same since the incident as now Harper sees ghosts and other paranormal essences that she cannot classify. Even stranger her clients take a gruesome twist as she has started to have walk-ins from the shadowy realm beyond the mortal plane. She needs professional help and a psychiatrist would cost too much money. So instead she turns to Linguistics Professor Ben 'ghost guy' Danziger and his ¿bewitching¿ wife Mara to instruct her on supernatural 101, 102, and advanced courses. Life is not the same for this GREYWALKER though she tries by dating a normal antiques expert while she is one bite away from being the vampire king¿s dessert as she blunders on a case from beyond.----------------- This is an amusing somewhat satirical fantasy mystery starring a delightful female who gaining an on the job education as an almost human sleuth. The story line is fast-paced, but belongs to the heroine who hopes by dating the norms she can keep one foot out of the graveyard. Fans will enjoy the delightfully entertaining detective story that moves back and forth between worlds as the tyro GREYWALKER learns about life, death, and a myriad of grey in-betweens.---------------- Harriet Klausner

Ok, I was excited to find a new author and potential series. But I am not even done with the book and it is like pulling teeth right now to even read a few pages. I can see where it is leading, but the concept of "walking in the grey" is tiring and not enough information is being given to keep the readers interest (at least not mine). There needs to be more character development for me to bond with them and so far nothing. I am sort of hoping the "thing" in the grey eats the main character.

    Waste of my time

    I could not get into this book at all. I ended up reading 3 or 4 other books in the time it took me to finish this one. The plot was boring. The story dragged on and on and could not keep me interested. I do like the concept of a greywalker but the story itself did nothing for me.

    OK I AM LOST

    I believe in giving books a chance before judging them by the reviews of others. And the reviews stated it was a good book, so i went and borrowed it. This book was bad. The story or the concept and idea of a greywalker was insteresting but the book itself was badly written. The action was too much and i dont refer to the action that keeps you at the edge of your feet, au contraire i mean the action that drags on, oh she went here and here and here Changing settings drastically over the course of a page, until you lose yourself and your like okay what was i reading, and where is she now?, Also the dialogue was very poor and unlikely. This book was written as a first person but make no mistake despite that you dont really know much about the main character, or what she's feeling, you can't become or sympathize with the chracter. I am sorry but i fail to see how people enjoyed this book.

    I Also Recommend:

    Skip this book

    With all the dark fantasy books out there, just skip this one. The plot had some legs but the characters left me thinking, "who cares?!?" Poor plot and character development throughout the book. I had to struggle to finish the book.
