Everyone enjoys peace and tranquility, and Victor Bayne is no exception. He goes to great lengths to maintain a harmonious home with his partner, Jacob. Although the cannery is huge, it's grown difficult to avoid the elephant in the room...the elephant with the letters FPMP scrawled on its hide.
Once Jacob surrendered his PsyCop badge, he infiltrated the Federal Psychic Monitoring Program. In his typical restrained fashion, he hasn't been sharing much about what he actually does behind its vigilantly guarded doors. And true to form, Vic hasn't asked. In fact, he would prefer not to think about the FPMP at all, since he's owed Director Dreyfuss an exorcism since their private flight to PsyTrain.
While Vic has successfully avoided FPMP entanglement for several months, now his debt has finally come due.

I'm never going to be able to sing "Row, row, row your boat. " again without giggling. Gomez Pugh definitely brought his A-game to this narration,...and that's on top of Jordan's A-game for this tale.
I love this series - Jordan Castillo-Price is an amazing author and keeps the story moving along - never a dull moment! Gomez Pugh has not only Victor's voice down pat, but does an amazing job with all the additional characters as well! If you haven't read (or listened) to the books in this series, do yourself a favor and get started!
Gomez, you rock! You make listening to a book so enjoyable that I wish it was a job I could do for a living. Your interpretation of Vic's inside voice is so spot on that I think you might possibly be a close relative.
Jordan, you rockette! I am so glad that you are sharing your incredible creative talent with us and am also so darn thrilled that you'll be continuing Vic's story! Now the waiting begins....
Love, love, LOVE this series! This was a perfect ending, with just the right amount of "there could be more" sprinkled in. Vic & Jacob are my dream couple and will miss them greatly.
Jordan Castillo Price has done a marvellous job with this series.
Along with Victor's maturing personal relationships comes the maturing of his career and development of his expanded psychic abilities. He's facing his demons, accepting change, and grabbing his cajones in this puzzling and action packed adventure. love the series, Pugh is the perfect narrator for this cast of characters!
"I suggest reading the series in order."
Characterisation is brilliant, JCP is careful to continue previous themes and tendencies and develop her protagonists while they deal with events. A complex novel which easily justifies its length because several issues are resolved and an arc ends.
The resolution of previous storylines. The low-key wit and the narrator's ability to deliver the right tone.
Yes - this is just as good as the others. It is hard to distinguish the narrator from the character of Vic, so perfectly does Gomez Pugh convey the character.
I've no idea - can't possibly convey anything accurate about the book in a few words.
The writing is so good that many narrators could do a decent job of this book but Gomez Pugh is much better than that. He really takes you completely into the story and you can relax there.
Just like the last six books in the Psycop series, I was blown away by Gomez Pugh's narration.
Psycop Victor Bayne was playing hookie from the 5th precinct again, this time he was working off his debt to Con Dreyfuss, and trying to clear the ghosts from his office. The mystery of who the ghosts were and how they met their ends consumed Vic and most of the plot. But the best bit was when Vic and Jacob were working together. I love it when Vic and Jacob work together. They are becoming a wonderful partnership, and not only in the bedroom.
I felt sorry for Jacob in this book though. He didn't get much lovin' and he didn't get much air time either. There was more of a focus on Vic's relationship with his ex cop partner Lisa. Their was way too much of Vic's unhealthy connection to Lisa. They real didn't know each other well at all, and yet he let her move in. If I'd just moved into a new house...my first ever real home, with a lover. Would i really want another person camped out in a tent in the living room? Jacob deserves better than that. Vic's compulsion to keep Lisa close worried me, and I was relieved at the end, when her story goes in another direction.
I really hope the next book harnesses the strengths of Vic and Jacob as a team, and Crash for slutty, comic effect. There is still so much mileage left in this series, and It felt like, at the end, the characters were all on the cusp of big changes. I can't wait to read /listen towhat happens.
