Publisher's Summary

Victor Bayne is through with the Chicago PD. Can he handle the FPMP?

After years of frustration as a PsyCop, Victor Bayne reports for duty at the Federal Psychic Monitoring Program. As a fledgling agent, he’s ready to smoke out a few ghosts and be home each night in time for dinner. But is he prepared to add a professional dimension to his romantic partnership with Jacob Marks?

Jacob has already established his territory in the Program - he’s competent, he’s respected, and he’s pretty much fearless. The last thing Vic wants to do is screw up in front of him.

When fellow agents start turning up dead, Vic is expected to do more than just lay their ghosts to rest.

But what if his psychic talent isn’t quite enough? As the death toll rises, he and Jacob scramble to determine who’s in danger, and who’s a killer.

Using all the resources at their disposal, they close in on their suspect. But as they do, their past comes back to haunt them...and even Jacob worries they’ve tampered with forces they should have left alone.

Are their combined talents enough to protect them from enemies both living and dead?

I love this series!!!!

With over 1300 titles in my library, this series is in my top 3. It is clever, off-the-walk & extremely well written. I’ve even donated to JCPs web site to help get the audiobook made. I have re-listened to the entire series several times. Obviously, I think any of the books in this series are worth more than a credit.

Love This Series!

I think the psycop books just keep getting better!
In this one we get to see a little more of Vic's past, as he begins to remember it.
Vic gets a little bit of a resolution as to why some things effect him they way they do.
He even gets to know "Dead Darla" a little more.
Gomez Pugh's narration is, as always, very good.
Can't wait for the next book!

9 books, dozens of shorts, and still 100$ on board

I am so in love with this series! Usually by book nine of any series, I am ready to tap out, but PsyCop keeps getting better and better. Not only am I still 100% in, I'm more in love with these characters than ever. I listened to the audio, and I swear Gomez Pugh is the medium and he channels the real Victor Bayne from another dimension. His dry delivery of JCP's humor is brilliant! I loved seeing more of Dead Darla. I hope we will continue to see her from time to time in future books.

Addictive

This series is so addictive. I can’t wait to start book 10. Agent Bayne is as good as the rest though not quite 5 stars. Since the cast was limited without Con and Lisa and with Crash taking on a more minor role, it was pretty easy to figure out who the killer was. It was a bit hard to believe that it took Vic so long to figure it out himself. But the most interesting mystery was what happened to Vic’s memories. And I can’t wait to find out more about his past.

Victor Bayne, Polygraph Flunker Extraordinaire

First, Gomez Pugh is as awesome as ever. Recently I've bought a few audio books just because he's the narrator. Nevertheless, more than anything else, he is the voice of Victor Bayne.

Second, I didn't think I'd be ok with Victor working for FPMP (although I did buy the t-shirt), but Jordan Castillo Price sold me in this one. My favorite part? Victor, for all his angst and pessimism, is still fundamentally voting in favor of the human race. His search for justice extends to righting his own wrongs, and that gives us new characters to bring into the cannery and future plot lines. His scowl may unlock his smart phone, but...well, then there's the cats. (There's more, but those are spoilers.)

Excellent

An excellent addition to an all time favorite series. While Vic and Jacob are still showing continued growth they are still very recognizable as the people from the beginning of the series. When I first met Vic there were only two books. The writing has continued to improve and each book reveals new levels of complexities to their lives. I love these stories!

Best yet

I was hesitant about the FPMP transition, but I really loved the way this book went with the acceptance and new friends.

Vic starts his new job

Would I listen to it again: yes
Did the story keep me engaged: yes
Was I invested in the characters: yes

Story comment: Good pace, the series continues to be interesting and the characters and story moving forward.
This instalment see's a significant evolution in Vic as he finds his way working for the FPMP.

Narrator comment: Gomez Pugh continues to embody everything that is the essence of Victor Bane in his narration. His consistency of characterisations across this series it to be commended, there is no problem distinguishing characters, and his rhythm, inflections and intonations all bring the book to life.

A new phone can be the death of you...

Vic is now working with the FPMP, which means he needs to revamp himself a little bit. Like, you know, having to deal with a new, shinny phone who hates him.

Laura is his new boss, although she doesn't seem to be as fond of him as she used to be. Her fears of everything ghostly hasn't changed, though.

And oh! look who is here too! His old frenemy from Camp Hell, Dead Darla! And she isn't very friendly XD

But she's not the only knew face he finds on the FPMP: Nerdy Horn-Rimmed Glasses, from the clinic, is there too. Doing Laura's former job! Although not too well, TBH :P But Vic finds himself trying to forge a friendship with him, and it's kind of funny and kind of sweet to witness his awkward attempts to navigate friendship with a colleague.

One of the things I have loved more about this series is watching Vic change, adapt, and get a better understanding of himself and his past. This book is not an exception. While working on the deaths of his fellow agents Vic faces all those blank spots from his past and he recognizes that they might not be the result of too many drugs and experimentation, and that, probably, there is something else going on there.

And he finally understands (and quite enjoys) how different is working in a place where he's not a freak but a trusted and respected member of the organization.

This is somehow a turning point on Victor's story. When I think of the Victor in 'Among the Living' and compare him to the one here, I see a different man: he has a partner whom he trusts and loves; he has friends, he has accepted and is open about his sexuality; he understands the strengths and possibilities of his mediumship a lot better. He is healthier and more whole than he has been for decades. And I loved every step that brought him to this point.

And I'm so willing to explore Vic's relationship with Darla! Those two are both powerful mediums but their approach is so different... I would love to see more of them working together :D

And yes, Gomez Pugh! He makes the experience wonderful with his narration, although that's not news :P
