Criss Cross finds the ghosts surrounding Victor getting awfully pushy. The medications that Victor usually takes to control his abilities are threatening to destroy his liver, and his new meds aren't any more effective than sugar pills. Vic is also adjusting to a new PsyCop partner, a mild-mannered guy named Roger with all the personality of white bread. At least he's willing to spring for the Starbucks.

Any additional comments?

This was a wonderful reading of Criss Cross, book 2 in Jordan Castillo Price's Psycop series. Gomez Pugh has really hit his stride here, and is a pleasure to listen to. Jacob's voice is perfect now (very toppy), but the way we hear Vic's thought process in this narration it's clearer how they are equal partners. That last love scene it one of the best read and hottest I've heard. Pugh also does a great job with Roger Burke's Stepford Husband obsequiousness. Victor is a nicer guy than he can admit to himself and that doesn't always work to his advantage. The side characters are fully drawn, also well read, and worth getting to know better. This is a series I've re-read a few times. The audio version is a must-have for JCP fans and hopefully new readers/listeners who are intrigued by paranormal detectives and thoughtful, witty, well-written m/m.
