Overview

Featuring two PsyCop novels, Among the Living and Criss Cross, this volume will leave you on the edge of you seat, wanting more!

In Among the Living, Victor is a PsyCop, also known as a member of the Paranormal Investigation team. He's not popular with the living, as most people consider him a little odd, but the ghosts of violent crimes can't wait to tell him all about their deaths.

His new case pairs him with Jacob, a non-psychic who works in sex crimes. Victor and Jacob have a history, and as they and work together to solve a set of serial crimes, they begin to explore the possibilities of a future.

The case is like nothing they've ever experienced, and soon Victor finds that he's the only one who can solve the crime, and save Jacob's life. If he's not too late.

In Criss Cross, Vic figures life is pretty good. He's got his lover, Jacob. He's got some time off to go fishing, and his new partner in the Paranormal Investigation Team buys the coffee. Naturally, nothing that good can last.

When Vic starts to see ghosts everywhere, things go very wrong, resulting in a trip to his doctor, who says he's got problems. Vic's friends tell Jacob he has to leave for Vic to get better, sex is starting to get dangerous, and Vic's abilities are getting out of hand. Can he and Jacob figure out what's happening in time to save Vic from becoming a pawn in a dangerous game?

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This urban fantasy series follows psychic detective Victor Bayne and partner Jacob Marks in a world where psychic ability is accepted, if still a bit creepy. Partners contains the first two books in the series: Among the Living and Criss Cross. In Among the Living, Victor and Jacob are partnered to catch a serial killer. Victor is the psychic-he can talk to dead people-or, rather, they talk to him and at length. Jacob is the nonpsychic part of the team, the one more comfortable being out, but neither man struggles with being gay. Fans of Laurell K. Hamilton's Anita Blake books would enjoy this series with paranormal activity as well as romance. — "Bodice Rippers Without the Bodice", Booksmack!, 12/16/10.

    One Wild Ride

    I usually don't read stories with supernatural themes, but I love detective mysteries, so I decided to give the PsyCop series a spin. I should have known better! When I hesitate on reading a book, I usually spend all night reading because I can't put it down. Price writes in an 'edge-of-your-seat' style that kept me turning page after page despite the late hour, creating an interesting world that I was quickly pulled into. In the first story 'Among the Living' we are introduced to Victor, a member of the Paranormal Investigation Unit and a 'class-5 medium' who can hear and see dead people. These psychic cops are paired with non-psychic cops also known as Stiffs. Victor's partner, Maurice, is retiring which has Victor a little unsettled. It's during Maurice's retirement party, that Victor first encounters Stiff Detective Jacob Marks. And what an encounter! The story moves quickly as Victor and his new partner, the tough but likeable Lisa Gutierrez, investigate their first murder together. But Lisa has a secret that threatens her future as a Psycop and results in Victor being paired with Jacob and his physic partner. The story is full of twists and turns as Victor and his partners investigate a series of strange murders, interviewing witnesses that describe different suspects and Victor suddenly has a problem communicating with the victims' ghosts. Then there is the developing relationship between Victor and Jacob, which had my romantic heart pitter-pattering in double-time. In the second story 'Criss Cross', Victor has a new partner, Roger Burke. Victor quickly warms up to his new partner after they get over Victor's 'BTW I like guys' hurdle. Things are definitely heating up between Jacob and Victor. Jacob is staying with Victor now, after the incident from the first story, while Jacob takes his time looking for a new place to live. The story starts out with Victor enjoying a quiet and relaxing fishing trip with his former partner Maurice. The quiet doesn't last long when Victor suddenly sees the ghosts of possibly hundreds filling the water. Strange things are starting to happen as Victor starts seeing more than his usual share of ghosts and he gets a 'little rough' with Jacob in bed. Price gives us another thrilling mystery, sprinkling little clues throughout the story that at first seem disjointed and unrelated, until the exciting climax when everything starts falling in place and making sense. I would have to say I found the second story more exciting than the first, one wild ride that kept me up late - again!
