Greywalker Series, #5
Things are pretty complicated for Harper Blaine right now, but come to think of it when are they aren’t? Her trip to London wasn’t fun. Things went pretty bad there. Now her ability with the Grey has gotten stronger, and she has learned that the man who killed her is dead. Lucky for her you can’t be on an airplane flying from London and murder someone at the same time. Harper is pretty sure that his death is part of a larger picture of whoever is trying to manipulate her. But she is tired of being pushed and Harper is going to do whatever it takes to end this, even if it means the end of her.
This book was a hard one to get into, I must confess. It started out strong but there were a lot of threads coming together from the previous four books. I started to get confused and had to take a break. But when I came back to it I was able to get it all straight. Once she found the labyrinth and discovered the plan behind her transformation, things raced along. You could literally feel her weariness and her resolve come off the pages in waves. Quinton is still a wonderful rock of a guy for Harper and I heave a sigh and think what a sweetie whenever he is around. Carlos was a seriously scary guy and the neighborhood where he practices his craft gave me the willies. The scheme he and Cameron cooked up to help Harper was brilliant! I cannot even imagine the headaches pulling this altogether was for Ms. Richardson. She has a wonderfully unique heroine in Harper and the Grey is still a compelling place. With the wonderfully intense ending I can’t even imagine what is in store for Harper and Quinton next.

The toughest case yet for Greywalker Harper Blaine, "a great heroine" (#1 New York Times bestselling author Charlaine Harris).
Harper Blaine was your average small-time P. I. until she died-for two minutes. Now she's a Greywalker, walking the line between the living world and the paranormal realm. There are others who know about her new powers-others with powerful tools and evil intentions, and now that the man who "killed" her has been murdered, the police are also paying close attention. That means Harper has to watch her step while searching for the ghost of her "killer"-who could be a valuable clue in the puzzle of Harper's past and her father's death, as well as a key to figuring out who's trying to manipulate her new powers and why. But with her growing powers pulling her into the Grey, Harper might not be able to come back out...
