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.

    Not good at all

    I just finished reading the Kim Harrison books and i was looking for something to fill the void. I saw the title of this book and read the back cover, and I was like 'Yes! Something to pass the time with until Kim Harrison makes another one.' But...I was sadly disappointed. I'm only on page 36 right now, and I don't think i can go any further. The book is badly written, jumping from place to place without expanding on the feelings of the main character or anything else. It's like a child writing about their day. 'A man bumped into me, I pushed him, he pushed back. It made me angry.' It is just not a book that devout paranormal/ fantasy fans will enjoy. I wont make the mistake of leaving the book store before reading the first chapter every again.

    Started off pretty good, then got all kinds of complicated with

    Started off pretty good, then got all kinds of complicated with 871 plot twists and turns. I was actually angry when trying to finish this book.  I released my angry and deleted the book. I don't care how it ends, and frankly am surprised there are multiple installations.

    Could have been better

    I like Science Fiction Fantasy, but this wasn't of the caliber that I like to read. Teenagers would love it. I won't continue this series.

    Guilty Pleasure, not so much

    From about a quarter of the way into the book, it was obvious that the author was setting up a multi-book series. The dialog and characters, even the protagonist, were flat. I suspect this was a trunk book from pre-2000, because while 'back in the '90s' is used occasionally, at no time is a cell phone even mentioned. Everything is pager this and pager that. I don't think I've even SEEN a pager since 'back in the '90s.' I applaud the author for writing, but this needed a serious amount of editing and review before it ended up on a BN bookshelf.
