The PsyCop series by Jordan Castillo Price
The Blurb of the First Book, Among the Living:
Victor Bayne, the psychic half a PsyCop team, is a gay medium who’s more concerned with flying under the radar than in making waves.
He hooks up with handsome Jacob Marks, a non-psychic (or “Stiff”) from an adjacent precinct at his ex-partner’s retirement party and it seems like his dubious luck has taken a turn for the better. But then a serial killer surfaces who can change his appearance to match any witness’ idea of the world’s hottest guy.
Dislike/like (ending on a high note):
…. I’m thinking alright!
Like~ I love Victor. He is a flawed character, barely hanging in by a thread, yet he manages to stumble his way through cases, nab the bad guy and find a hottie. You gotta love that. His SO and the cast of secondary characters are all pretty awesome too. Good characters = much joy for Kris. *g*
Dislike~ Probably the only thing that makes me a bit squicky is that Jacob gets off on Victor’s abilities and experiences. It’s pretty easy to shrug off though if you think of it as a (granted, a very odd) kink and, hey, if it doesn’t bother Victor… 🙂
Like~ Just when you think you’ve figured out the crime/mystery side of things along comes a twist. I love the way this author’s mind works. She has plots, sub-plots, threads and undercurrents throughout her stories and pulls them all off to much satisfaction. That, my friends, takes skill and talent.
So, what I think:
This series is in my keeper collection. I love it. I’ve just finished the latest book, Camp Hell, and already I want more.
‘Tasting’ is my version of a mini-review where I talk a (very) little about what I liked and disliked about a book as well as who I think the story will appeal to. Oh, and I’ve added a bit about why I picked up the book in the first place – sometimes this can be interesting to know.
