Kyle Monroe, his irritating new partner, and their fellow freaks at the 77th Precinct must learn to work together to stop a vicious murderer that might not even be human.

Kyle Monroe’s encounter with a strange gelatinous creature in an alley leaves him scarred and forever changed, revealing odd abilities he wishes he didn’t have and earning him reassignment to a precinct where all the cops have defective paranormal abilities.

Just as he’s starting to adjust to his fellow misfit squad mates, Kyle’s new partner arrives. Tall, physically perfect, reserved, and claiming he has no broken psychic talents, Vikash Soren irritates Kyle in every way. But as much as he’d like to hate Vikash, Kyle finds himself oddly drawn to him, their non-abilities meshing in unexpected ways. If they can learn to work together, they might be able to stop the mysterious killer who has been leaving mutilated bodies along the banks of the Schuylkill.

Publisher’s Note: This book has previously been released elsewhere. It has been revised and re-edited for re-release with Pride Publishing.

My View:

Yet another winner by Angel Martinez! This was a charming, off beat tale where the supernatural is common, but even among the freaks there are freaks!

I loved Kyle! His self-commentary was funny and grounded. I loved the instant connection between him and Vikash. Even though Vikash isn’t forthcoming about himself, we still learn a lot about him.

I also liked the rest of the misfits in the station. Their interactions were very humorous and added to the feel of the book. The plot was interesting and I enjoyed the ride.

My only complaint is that it was too short. But that is my complaint of many a good book. I am definitely glad there is another book in the series!
