The media has a nickname for Marnie Baranuik, though she’d rather they didn’t; they call her the Great White Shark, a rare dual-talented forensic psychic. Twice-Touched by the Blue Sense--which gives her the ability to feel the emotions of others, and read impressions left behind on objects--Marnie also has a doctorate in preternatural biology and a working knowledge of the dark arts. She is considered without peer in the psychic community. Then her first big FBI case ended with a bullet in one shoulder and a chip on the other, a queasy heart and a serial killer in the wind, leaving her a public flop and a private wreck. When the FBI’s preternatural crimes unit tracks her down at a remote mountain lodge for her insight on a local case, her quiet retirement is promptly besieged by a stab-happy starlet, a rampaging ghoul, and a vampire-hunting jackass in tight Wranglers. Marnie figures the only real mystery is which one will kill her first. Too mean to die young, backed up by friends in cold places, and running with a mouth as demure as a cannon’s blast, Marnie Baranuik is about to discover that there’s no such thing as quitting time when you’re Touched.

Am I stupid? I can't understand what anyone is saying. We're dropped right into a meeting where everyone refers to past events with zero context. Then they just keep going on and on about things like I'm supposed to know wtf they're referring to, but I don't. The words they're using don't make any s...
Mmm this is a hard one to review I think. I liked it well enough, I just don't like Harry. I don't know perhaps he will redeem himself, but right now he's an ass. I don't think Batten is much better either. But at least I trust him more. And Chapel - he is not my fav either. I don't know what will h...
What a really random ending, actually its kind of annoying, I like labels and closed relationships. this is clearly the opposite of that! I think the reason why devious sneaky harry wants to keep Mark around is so he can have Chapel. this slightly bothers me on MJ's behalf (yes im going to feel her ...
