Maurin Kincaide is a psychometric investigator for Salem's Supernatural Task Force. She's spent the last few years working crime scenes and using the memory links in fingerprints to catch criminals.
When the current bad guy turns out to be a demon, Maurin must work with Seamus - the task force's prime suspect for unleashing said demon. She follows Seamus deeper into the supernatural community and discovers there's a lot more going on than anyone guessed.
Our unique investigator is quickly enlisted from her day job by the Council, a secret governing body of all things Other. They want her to find out more about the abundance of demons in Salem and who might be controlling them...

The story might be good but the narrator with her nasal voice and monotonous speaking makes this a difficult listen. I keep hoping it'll get better but....
Not if it's the same narrator.
Less nasal, less monotone
i found this book difficult to follow, it was not that the pilot was too confusing, but maybe that it was so simple. It was unclear much of the time how the plot was moving forward, who was who, and why they were doing what they were doing. Also I thought the narrator was terrible.
The story line was creative with a nice twist on the oldies.
I wasn't a fan of her voice and she wasn't creative with her character switches. (i.e. no accents)
The story is well worth it, if you can get past the voice.
The person narrating clearly made a choice to use a very flat affect for the main character. There were hints of inflection for some of the other characters but I only lasted about 4 or 5 chapters. The story sounded like it might be interesting but I was enormously irritated by the voice of the main character - which made her seem weak and stupid. I have no idea if she quit being so clearly unprepared and disagreeable. With another vocal approach, she might have seemed justifiably put upon and tough, but this just didn't work.
I am not sure - she obviously chose this narration and it was horrible.
Any amount of inflection would have helped.
It seemed like the world and concept had potential. I just couldn't stick it out.
