Being a telepath, I should have seen the hell I was getting myself into…

I used to be one of the most powerful telepaths in the guild. That was before my drug addiction and before they kicked me out. But I'm not a bad guy. Now I help the Atlanta PD solve murders. And even though there are only a few people I call friends, I'd do most anything to keep

Overview

Being a telepath, I should have seen the hell I was getting myself into…

I used to be one of the most powerful telepaths in the guild. That was before my drug addiction and before they kicked me out. But I'm not a bad guy. Now I help the Atlanta PD solve murders. And even though there are only a few people I call friends, I'd do most anything to keep their trust.

So when a judge asks me to help investigate a missing college kid, I'm down for it. No questions asked. No problem. But in this dark world, things are never easy and a favor is never just a favor. Turns out, politicians don’t like being murder suspects. And it's bad to anger someone with more power than you. I thought I had nothing to lose... I was wrong.

Includes a preview of Alex Hughes’s Sharp

A nice interlude b/w Clean and Sharp. Getting more of a sense of the main character, a little more of his past. The interaction between him and Cherabino are as tense as ever and continue where they left off in Clean. I'm liking this character more and more. It's his struggle to do what's right, no matter what it costs him. And it often costs him a lot. Makes you hope he'll catch a break someday. Maybe on Sharp. We'll see. Going straight on to Sharp!

I've loved Alex Hughes's Mindspace series. Truly remarkable dystopian futuristic mysteries. This novella fit beautifully between books 1 and 2, moved the overall story forward and was as captivating as the full-length novels (I've thoroughly enjoyed 1 and 2). My only hesitation in awarding 5 stars....this novella had a seriously too-abrupt ending. Still, Mindspace fans will find it a very worthwhile and enjoyable read.

A nice tale before the next novel. I like that the author has character development-even in a novella. Nice read for neo-noir lovers.

This is an an interesting book from an author new to me. Even though this was a novella it still felt unfinished at the end of the story. I felt it was unrealistic to have a police officer follow the main character (a police consultant) around on a daily basis. I don't know of any police department in any age or century or genre that has this kind of money and personnel. The story did seem to flow okay even with its brevity. And I felt myself rooting for the main character, Adam, hoping that his telepathy came back. I look forward to finishing "Sharp" and going back to the beginning and reading "Clean".
