She worked for Lucas Protection Services under a false name; just one more false alias like she has had all of her life. She ran from her family and their nutty conspiracy theories as they worked hard to stay off the grid. She discovers there is an illegal arm's selling segment within the company she works for and they are going to pin the rap on her. She runs, but they catch her; she barely escapes being killed because the operation is illegal and Isabelle Valdez does not know who to trust in the firm; so she trusts no one. Heeding her grandma's advice, she heads for Scargill Cove, California. Many of the residents are psychic like Isabelle who obtains a job with a powerful psycgic Fallon Jones who runs a detective agency. His clientele is usually from the Arcane Society devoted to Psy research and the police. Fallon and his new assistant find cache of psychic weapons hidden in a bomb shelter. They dismantle one that seems set to explode and have the arcane experts disable the rest. The pair follows clues that lead back to Lucas Protection dealing in psychic weapons that in the wrong hands could prove especially dangerous. They know they must break up the ring of sellers, buyers and suppliers; however the stakeholders in this lethal enterprise will kill any intruder without remorse. As Fallon and Isabelle fall in love, a new emotion for each, they do not lose sight of the mission. Once again, Jayne Ann Krentz delivers a fantastic romantic suspense with a terrific angle involving psychic warfare. The fast-paced story line contains the trademark Ms. Krentz quirky characters, dry witty humor and loads of action. The lead characters are each powerful psychics who readers will believe used their Psy powers on us to finish the talein one exciting sitting.

This is an exciting story where Fallon Jones, the main character, heads an Investigation business and is in need of an assistant. This is where the charming Isabella enters the story to give great balance in all things. There is the cute, playful dance leading to love and the lessons her goodness, paranormal talents and multiple other characteristics teach Jones as in acceptance that eases his ability to give. This is a wonderful story and I truly enjoyed every word!

Finally learned more about Fallon. Though, he wasn't exactly how I pictured him. He seemed to lose his caustic edge. Still enjoyed the story.

Pete and Repeat are telling this story. SO MUCH repetition and redundant wording! Where are the editors who are supposed to catch phrases like, "He was glad to have the opportunity to get the chance to..."?

Fallon Jones, head of the family business of J&J Investigations long ago moved to the quirky, quaint town of Scargill Cove CA. It's close to the sea and shrouded in more than the fog rolling off the Pacific, why did he move, well it's location, location, location. Fallon is a strong probably off the charts chaos theory talent, which helps immensely in his investigations, but not so much his social life which is why he prefers this little town where he can hide in plain sight to aid his reclusiveness. Isabella Valdez is fleeing for her life from the very people who she once worked for, now she fears they've done away with her Grandmother and the only place she has left to run to is Fallon Jones. Fallon knows she's hiding something, he is after all a strong talent, he just has to keep her safe until she fesses up. In the mean time they have this other small problem, they can't keep their hands off each other. Chaos, Kismet or disaster, start turning pages to find out. Ms. Krentz continues her beloved Arcane novels with the irrepressible Fallon Jones, that unlovable character you've met in many previous reads and matches him with this spunky, sparkly direct opposite of him, which works like a charm. The plot is of course out of this world, dealing with Victorian paranormal weapons and villains who are just as odd as the heros. Her dialogue is in the ever present Arcane-speak that her fans are used to and love, but if you're a new reader to this series it may take you a few pages to get it down, once you do you'll Arcane-speak with the best of them. Her characters are over the top, unforgettable but at the same time very personable. The romance is wonderfully sweet in part because of the hero's proclivity to chivalry and the heroine's allowance of it and in part because these two lovers make you smile at every turn. The love scenes are as hot as the romance is sweet, but not too hot to embarrass the reader. Get ready for another trip in the funhouse that is the Arcane Society with all the quirky members, bad and good and in between, for a bumpy ride to romance, for tense moments with villains to remember and crimes you won't forget mixed with a cornucopia of odd characters and even odder places. All in all a great read. The only detriment to getting hooked on the Arcane books, is waiting for the next one.

She's done it again. Fast pace, riveting and made of win. We reconnect with Fallon, who's having some very big problems both professionally and physically as a result of his talent. It's taking it's toll. Then we meet the mysterious and very interesting Isabella. She's in her own brand of hot water and has something in common with our Jones. Espionage, revenge plots, murder, hired thugs, new psi weapons, new foes, romance, twists a mile a minute, friendship, humor, family, I could go on. It's all here. Wonderful and fun new characters (like a town full of Fallon's), to the old ones we love like Arizona (who it appears knows all the retired agents, haha). We see new layers to Fallon and find he's not this brooding closed off superman, but human as the rest of us. Isabella taps into this not often used side of him and opens up a new world for them both. And J&J. Because only partners on all levels can work a case like this and come out on top. Couldn't put it down and so jazzed for the next one. I can see where this is going and I just love it.

Love the series and like most fans I have been dying for the Fallon jones story. I reserved my copy in November and went ahead and paid the high price for the book. It was good but not as great as I expected. I guess my expectations were just to high for the long anticipated Fallon story.

Fallon Jones, mysterious head of the J& J agency,hires Isabella Valdez to be his assistant. She is on the run from agents from her previous job after being set up to appear to be an arms trader. She quickly proves herself to be invaluable to the cantankerous Fallon, organizing his office and life. Romance blooms amid an interesting case involving antique mechanical items imbued with paranormal power to kill people,proving Isabel's innocence, and finding a missing relative. I especially enjoyed seeing old friends Luther & Grace and Jack & Raine from previous Arcane books and even a brief appearance from Arizona Snow,uber conspiracy therorist, from the Eclipse Bay series. Can't wait for the next book in the Looking Glass Trilogy due in April.

I liked the book very much. It's my first Arcane novel, my first Jayne Ann Krentz book. The book exciting and was entertaining even without benefit of having read prior novels in the series. Krentz has spun a good tale. The mystery is captivating, and the pace is good. While the tale makes me what to read the earlier books, I didn't feel I had to run out and get the books to understand In Too Deep. The romance piece was only okay for me; but was not detracting enough to keep me from finishing the trilogy.

Have read all the previous books in this series and was looking forward to reading this one. Krentz doesn't disappoint. If you like her other books you'll like this one.

I just finished reading IN TOO DEEP by Jayne Ann Krentz, Book One of the Looking Glass Trilogy. If you follow the Arcane Society romantic suspense/mystery series as I do, you know that the novels have been set in the past, present and future. They all have one thing in common: each book is a great reading experience. IN TOO DEEP is no exception. Fallon Jones is a gumshoe with heightened paranormal abilities. Jones & Jones Investigations is located in Scargill Cove, a small Northern California town with unique currents of psi or paranormal energy. Isabella Valdez flees to Scargill Cove where she fits in with the other eccentric and/or unusually talented people. This is an exciting book with interesting, well-developed characters. Add to this a mix of mystery, thriller and hot romance and you have a winner of a novel.

I enjoy the Arcane Series a great deal and have read the books over and over. The last book (by alias Jayne Castle for a future era) I was a little disappointed in, but this book (back in the current era)brought me back on board. Without giving away secrets, to finally see this particular Jones have a successful relationship was worth the wait. Keep up the good work!!

The story was interesting at the beginning. First, Fallon, head of J&J, was almost killed by a special light but ended up killing his enemy. Then, Isabella, a paranormal with special powers, was introduced. She was running from paranormal investigators who supposedly killed her grandmother and were framing her for illegally selling paranormal weapons. The story continued this way with disjointed events that didn't make immediate sense. Paranormal phenomena, weapons, and powers were explained in depth with its own terminology. I only enjoyed the parts of the book where there was action and not the interminable explanations of the paranormal community. To me, it sounded very far-fetched. A whole community of psychics with a large range of powers living within the rest of the population and weren't noticed. Since this book is part of a series, nothing is resolved at the end. And I'm not going to read the next book to find out.
