This paranormal thriller takes on another level of intrigue with veteran narrator Romy Nordlinger giving a sharp performance. Her cool voice picks up the subtleties in Laura Anne Gilman's third book from her Paranormal Scene Investigations series, and drives this complex thrill ride to its surprising conclusion. Bonnie Torres is a paranormal investigator working her way up the ranks at the PUPI, when she is called on to lend assistance to the NYPD. What starts out as just one more case of murder, quickly takes a turn for the weird. Tricks of the Trade is another great chapter in Laura Anne Gilman's electrifying world of magic and adventure.
When magic goes wrong, who are you going to call?
The name's Torres, Bonnie Torres, and I'm a paranormal scene investigator - rooting out the truth about crimes of magic. It's dangerous and boring and scary and fascinating. Though not everyone in the Cosa Nostradamus is happy we're around, which can make things…tricky.
Working two cases - looking into a murder for the NYPD, and a rich man's break-in - should be well within our abilities. But when things start getting weird in the Electric Apple, Private Unaffiliated Paranormal Investigations is stretched to the limits, trying to keep one step ahead and out of trouble. Add in rumors of a powerful creature gunning for us and it's not just our rep on the line this time - if we don't solve this case, everyone will suffer.
Fortunately, around here, when the going gets weird, the weird hire us.…

I love to read, but I am time-limited. Audible allows me to keep up with all my favorite authors while on the hiking trail. Thanks, Audible!
While I am not new to Laura Anne Gillman’s writing, I overlooked the PUPI series until after the fourth book was released. Finding/noticing a great series late is always a wonderful indulgence for me. I can dive into the new series and spent time really listening to the characters and following their growth over a number of books without getting frustrated by the seemingly long wait for a new installment—ehm, ehm, George R. R. Martin (cue the awkward silence). Sometimes, a binge on a new series will leave me never wanting to think about that series again (i.e., Divergent and Hunger Games), but the PUPI series does not wear out its welcome after such gluttonous behavior. If you like paranormal crime, you will enjoy this series and this narrator.
