Publisher's Summary

When a reclusive psychic shows up looking for Jude Byrne in his adopted hometown of Salem, Massachusetts, the private investigator’s walls go up instantly. Psychic or not, this mysterious man knows secrets about Jude’s past that are better left buried in the New Mexico desert. Stranger still is the personality change that comes over the flirty PI after he meets the newcomer.

Psychic Copeland Forbes is a man on the edge. The once popular and well-respected medium has lived in seclusion since an attack by a former student has shaken his confidence in his abilities. Sickened by an ailment no doctor can diagnose, he travels from his home in Louisiana to seek out the one man he believes he can help him, if the rumors are true.

Faced with an enemy possessing powers greater than either man has ever faced alone, will Jude and Copeland decide to work together to defeat this dark magick? Or will both men continue on as they are now, ghosts of themselves?

Good story with nice narration by Michael Pauley

I have listened to the Cold Case Psychic series with narration by Michael Pauley and listening to him with this new series feels like all the characters have come home.

Copeland Forbes loves New Orleans. He’s a psychic and a witch with a thriving business and friends that he loves. When he’s attacked by a student/lover he leaves his home. Hiding out for two years until he becomes ill and has to seek out Jude Byrne for help. He collapses on Tenn and Ronan’s doorstep.

Jude knows something had changed the minute he laid eyes on Cope. He reveals part of his secrets to help the the almost comatose Cope. They have to learn to trust each other to save Cope.

I enjoyed getting to know more about Jude. I’ve wanted to know his secrets since he was first introduced. Cope was an interesting character too. Very invested in his city of New Orleans, it was easy to feel his pain at being forced to leave.

I liked the slow burn of the story. The characters (as with all the author creates) were well rounded and felt familiar very quickly.

The banter between Jude and Ronan is similar to siblings, so sometimes it’s very annoying. This is a spin-off of the Cold Case Psychic series and I think those books really need to be read to have a full understanding of this one.

Magic, mystery, intrigue and so much more. ...

Magic, mystery, intrigue and so much more. What a delightful listen!!!

I have been impatiently waiting for more insight and understanding about Jude and this book exceeded my expectations. The writing was terrific and the story-line kept me glued to my audible app all day. What a delightful narration!!!

Jude and Cope are developing a very special connection, one that is a real slow burn. i am looking forward to these guys really connecting and finding themselves with each other. i also loved that we got to see all of the special characters that we have grown to love from the Cold Case Psychic series.

This is the first book in this new spin-off series Haunted Souls and i cannot wait for the next one!!

I loved this audio

I had previously read the book and it was great. Listening to the narration after having read the book brought a wonderful new dimension to the story. Michael Pauley's characterization of the players was superb. I enjoyed to the story to begin with, but I truly loved it after listening to Pauley's wonderful interpretation of the characters. Don't miss this one.

Beginning of a new series but not the beginning.

Great story but weighted heavily from an earlier series: Cold Case Psychic.
the support carachters and much of the background plot are all created and explored in that series.

Great New Series!

This is a great start to a new series that is another spinoff of the Cold Case Psychic series, one of my favorite! We finally get Jude's story and I'm glad that he's actually getting his own series. Jude and Copeland have great chemistry and are perfect for one another. It's a slow burn wrapped up in a great story with a wonderful mystery to solve. The narrator was absolutely fabulous with this story! I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy of this audiobook.

Great Start to a Spin-Off Series

We first meet Jude in the author's series "Dead Ringer", and its so nice to see him finally get his own book!! He is in Salem when once popular psychic, Copeland, comes looking for him after Copeland gets sick with something no one can diagnose. In this story you get a little bit more of Jude's backstory. Add in some mystery, some magic and some new friends (Onyx is my favorite) and you have the great start to a new series. I can't wait to see how this series progresses.
Michael Pauley did a wonderful job with his performance. His voice is perfect to bring this world to life! Wonderful job!

Amazing Spin-off

Jude and Copeland really had chemistry and the slow burn was a nice touch.

I’m so glad Jude finally got his story and it didn’t disappoint.

Jude’s protective streak over Cope was sexy. I loved how their were secrets revealed about who Jude really was and his backstory. Cope’s backstory was intriguing as well.

The mystery behind who and why Cope was being attacked psychically had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning. I totally didn’t see the end and can’t wait to hear/read more from the two as they start their new journey as working partners.

Michael Pauley did another amazing job with his voices for each character, especially for Cope. He was clear to understand, and it was easy to fall into the story with him reading.

Excellent start to a new series!!!

I absolutely loved this book. I am a huge fan of the Cold Case Psychic series and its spin off novellas so I have been anxiously awaiting Jude's story and I am ecstatic that he is getting his own series. I can't wait to learn even more about him and his new "partner" Cope. My heart was going out to Cope from the beginning and seeing Jude swoop in to be his protector was the perfect beginning to this story. I really like how the author is handling the fledgling new "relationship" between these two men and not rushing them into love. I look forward to watching them grow as a team and seeing what kind of shenanigans they get into. We get to learn more about Jude's background and we get to visit with all of our friends from the Cold Case series. I am not completely caught up with that series because I am waiting for the audibles to come out but after this story I may have to slot some time to go read them all. I didn't feel like I had missed a whole lot but I could tell there were stories that I had missed and that just won't do. This story can be enjoyed on its own but is much more enoyable if you have read the other books. Michael Pauley does an excellent job with the narration as always and it's very easy to figure out who is talking just by listening to his voice. He carries over the voices from the other connected series very well so he was the perfect choice to continue this story line!

Amazing and incredible series start

Jude is well known to those that have read Cold Case Psychic and I, for one, have waited for his story. Well, in this one, we get to start learning his story when Copeland shows up asking for help.

Cope has been in hiding since he was almost killed by his ex and comes to Jude in search of help. What he finds is so much more.
