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?

I'm a huge fan of Jordan Castillo Price and have read most of her titles. Now I can enjoy them as audio books. This is something like a dream come true!, especially because I'm Japanese and my first language is not English. I listen to books both for fun and learning the language.
As for audio books in general, I'm not that thrilled to listen to them because I often enjoy Japanese audio books DramaCDs more, which are played by several professional voice actors accompanied by a sound effect and background music. Each character is played by a different voice actor. So I'm sometimes baffled by the struggle; just one narrator tries to act several roles in audio books. But fortunately I didn't find anything strange or off with Psycop audio series.
I was able to connect Gomez Pugh's voice and Victor in my mind quite smoothly. His narration really conveys the unique persona of Vic; serious, unstable, flippant..., but irresistibly adorable all together. Listening to Jordan's work with a real voice, and I was reminded again and again how captivating and unique her voice, wording, and tones are. I wholeheartedly recommend the second Psycop audio book, Criss Cross.
