Publisher's Summary

Victor Bayne has survived demons, ghosts, and repeaters. But can he survive a murder house?

Few people would willingly spend the night in a murder house, but Victor Bayne is up for the challenge. He’ll do whatever it takes to get a look at his permanent record, including going undercover in a townhouse where a recent death took place. Why not? There was no foul play involved, and as a psychic medium, he’d know if a ghost was creeping up on him. The whole “murder house” claim is just a product of a kid’s overactive imagination, and he’s confident he has the situation under control.

Until he gets a load of the smell.

Turns out, undercover work is a lot tougher than it looks. Vic misses Jacob something fierce. The subject of his assignment is a real piece of work. His partner has definitely got something to hide…and then the investigation takes a truly bizarre turn.

What happens if the murder house reveals itself to be more than just a schoolyard rumor?

PsyCop is an ongoing series filled with supernatural action and delightfully awkward humor - with a steady undercurrent of gay romance. It’s best listened to in order, so if you’re new to the series, start with PsyCop, Book 1, Among the Living...and prepare for a hauntingly good listen.

One of my favorite series of all times

I can’t believe this is book 10 in this wonderful series. I love the evolution of Vic and how much he has come into himself and his relationship with Jacob. As always the narration by Gomez Pugh is stellar and I enjoy listening to this series again and again.

So happy there's more to this series!

I didn’t do it consciously, but I am so, so, so glad I waited til this came out in audio. I had a total blast revisiting Vic’s world of crazy! I am NOT a mystery fan but I was totally swept up in trying to figure out what the hell was going on! I loved the “douche” persona and how Vic would try to figure out what the “douche” would do in a given situation. I also totally loved the interludes with Jacob- totally hot! I am so grateful that Jordan is continuing to give us more from this series. It’s so captivating, and fresh and yet the characters are familiar and comforting because of our history with them. It’s a win all the way around! Add to it Gomez’ stellar narration and you have a 6 of 5 star audiobook! Highly recommended – but it must be read as part of the amazing series!

Another hit!

Victor is an amazing character. He grows and gets wiser with every new book in the series and comes alive through the fabulous narration of Gomez Pugh. Jacob is always appropriately sexy. A great read.

PsyCops 10

With the title of “Murder House,” I pictured an isolated creepy gothic mansion. Instead, the story is set in a 3-year old townhouse in Boystown! In a change of pace, Vic goes undercover with his new partner (don’t worry, not *that* kind of partner), Jack Bly, one of my favorite supporting characters. We also get to see a new side of Carl, who can morph into a very take charge guy, and Veronica Lipton. But, don’t worry about Jacob; he is well represented in the book. Gomez Pugh’s performance was, as always, brilliant as he brings the characters to life. His portrayal of the snarky, 80+ year old Sylvester Hale was spot on. So, get set for almost nine wonderful hours of listening to Vic, Jacob, and assorted characters in Murder House. Oh, and did I mention the Mongolian hamsters?

Spy school isn’t known as Espionage Academy, The Shifty Arts, or Lurking 101. The pros refer to it as “tradecraft.” “Once upon a time if you told doctors you heard voices, they’d diagnose you as schizophrenic, put you on heavy drugs, and lock you away in a cozy state institution to keep you from hurting yourself or others. Nowadays, they test you first to see if you’re psychic.” “Starting with the world’s most facile cliché?” Hale observed. “Once upon a time? That takes quite a sturdy ego.” 😭😂😂 I love Hale! And give Bly a book already!

Better than Ever

I had started to listen to this book back when the audiobook first came out, but my heart wasn't in it, and I quit after the first chapter. I love this series. Gomez Pugh is Victor Bayne. It's not possible for me to read the books without hearing his voice. When I want to relisten to old favorites, the early books in this series are perfect. There are a lot of angsty characters out there, but Victor is in a class of his own. Still, as the series has progressed, Victor has grown. With Jacob at his back, he has begun to live again (which I suppose is where the first book's title comes from). In Murder House, though, one thing becomes crystal clear. Victor isn't just in love with Jacob and going along where ever Jacob leads them, coping in his uniquely Victor ways. He's happy. In his uniquely Victor way. In Murder House, the circumstance mean that Victor and Jacob must be apart for a few weeks. It's hard on Victor, but wonderful for the reader. It was a delight, and sometimes literally laugh out loud funny, to listen to Victor wax nostalgic about all things Jacob. Towards the end there was a lovely scene between Victor and Jacob that I didn't see coming because for once, Victor didn't agonize over it (and over it and over it) ahead of time. And it was so believable. As usual in this series, we meet new side characters who are as likable as our usual main characters. We get to know Agent Bly's back story, and there is a sweet teenager who teaches Victor to make heart shaped duct tape wallets. The whole story felt like a gift to the reader. While there wasn't a lot of progress in the mystery of Victor's past, there was tremendous progress and so much to celebrate in Victor's present. I have favorites in this series: Among the living, Camp Hell, Ghost TV, and Skin After Skin among them. I am absolutely certain that Murder House has just joined this list. I may put off going straight on to Bitter Pill just to extend the book hangover a bit. Highly recommend.

Intriguing, Haunting, Hot

it seems like it might be difficult to fit paranormal haunting creep factor with intrigue and sex, let alone romance, but Jordan Castillo Price strikes again and it is amazing. I was not sure where this story was going, but I do know I thought we had bottomed out in the rabbit hole only to see a other tunnel.

Still going strong!

Loved this. Even though Vic and Jacob are apart for most of the book, the story was absorbing and Vic is as compelling as ever. I liked getting to know Jack Bly and hearing Vic realise that perhaps he's not quite as screwed up as he thinks he is. Gomez Pugh continues to be awesome. Could he possibly be getting even better? ;)

Excellent

Excellent story and narration as always. I was hooked despite having read the book it still felt fresh and exciting listening to Gomez Pugh as Victor. Worth more than 5 stars.

Great fun undercover!

As a Federal Agent, Victor is keen to go undercover where the awkward situations are tight and the skinny jeans even tighter. How does his target, an octogenarian with a cane, manage to keep on avoiding him? I think this was the funniest, most enjoyable book in this series so far, and the scenes with the rats were the creepiest by far! Gomez Pugh pulls out all the bells and whistles, channeling a cranky gym ghost, an arch octogenarian, a self-important bookstore owner, and a miserable mom, as well as Victor’s trademark scowling narration!!
