Thanksgiving can't end too soon for Victor Bayne, who's finding Jacob's family hard to swallow. Luckily, he's called back to work to track down a high-profile missing person.

Meanwhile, Jacob tries to find a home they can move into that's not infested--with either cockroaches, or ghosts. As if the house-hunting isn't stressful enough, Vic's new partner Bob Zigler doesn't seem to think he can do anything right. A deceased junkie with a bone to pick leads Vic and Zig on a wild chase that ends in a basement full of horrors.

My Review

In the third installment of the Psy Cop series, Vic and Jacob are spending Thanksgiving with Jacob’s family. Vic wants to be a good boyfriend and tries to wean himself from the Auracel that prevents him from seeing ghosts, but keeps him high most of the time. Their Thanksgiving holiday is cut short when Vic gets a call to investigate the case of three missing people, including an alderman’s nephew.

Once again, I can’t get enough of this series and was flipping pages well into the night. Vic’s quirky personality and humor is always entertaining, the protective Jacob provides stability while helping Vic come out of his shell, and the unusual case Vic is asked to solve requires the full use of his psychic abilities.

We get to meet lots of new and interesting characters, some living, and some dead. The sex is always sizzling, as Vic and Jacob’s relationship grows deeper. I loved this story and can’t wait to find out more about Vic’s troubled past.
