Overview

Greg has a special talent he'd give anything to be rid of. After an accident many years ago that left him in a coma, Greg woke up to find that he could touch things and know what had happened to them. Too bad he can't control the talent enough to keep it from overwhelming him. He's lived with it long enough that it he can make it day by day, but when he starts being stalked, he has to depend on his friends to help him cope.

The only good thing his gift has brought him is Artie, an overprotective cop with a psychotic cat and a great bedside manner. Artie is all about helping Greg cope, and about finding out who's threatening his friend. Through grisly gifts and terrifying attacks, Artie stays by Greg's side. Even ordering take-out can be an ordeal for Greg, and Artie is happy to run interference.

Greg hasn't touched anyone without pain in years, but with Artie he finds he has someone to lean on, even as the stalker finds new ways to torment him. Can the two of them find a way to solve the mystery of Greg's tormenter before one of them gets hurt?

Read an Excerpt

Dark. It was dark; how could it be dark already? Unreasonably dark, dark enough that it seemed to cling to his skin like oil.

Greg walked forward, bare feet splashing, landing on smooth, slick flooring. He took one reluctant step at a time, hands held in front of him, fingertips stretched back as if recoiling from what they were going to encounter. Nothing he would find here would be good. Nothing could be, covered with this slime of darkness.

He could hear things, muffled cries and mutters, soft words.

If he was a stronger man, he would turn, would turn around and run toward the door and the light and the...

Oh.

He fought the urge to cry out as his hands brushed a curtain, slick and warm like a shower curtain in a public bathroom, fingers curling into it even as his instinct was to pull away, let go. He wasn't a stronger man. He hadn't been able to fight this then; he couldn't now. He took a breath, breathed in the heaviness, the black, the ink of the air.

Then he wrenched open the curtain, eyes wide, and stepped into someone's nightmare.

    I Also Recommend:

    Plot and story lost amongst all the sex

    The story started out really interesting but as soon as the two main characters hooked up, all they did was have sex. Not that there's anything wrong with it...not at all... but I was hoping for more story than that.

    Greg needs to touch more evil and less Artie...well, just more evil in general.

    Great read

    A very entertaining read. The powers the MC has are very creepy but the author does not dwell on them too much. Enough so the reader understands how horrible his "gift" is but not enough to give me nightmares. Otherwise it was an interesting mystery/drama/romance. I highly recommend this story and really enjoy this author.
