Image of Poltergeist (Greywalker, Book 2)

Science has definitely run amok in Richardson's dark and gritty follow-up to her admirable debut, Greywalker. Dogged and gusty P.I. Harper Blaine chronicles her first-person adventures into the unknown with a gripping, stark realism for a truly excellent blend of detective drama and paranormal thriller.

Harper is still adjusting to her paranormal transformation following the two-minute "death" that left her with one foot in the real world and the other in the Grey, where vampires, ghosts and creatures of nightmares lurk. At first Harper's new job seems like a straightforward assignment: find out who's sabotaging a university research group's experiments involving the creation of an artificial poltergeist. But when Harper finds a group member brutally murdered, she suspects the group has succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Is the poltergeist causing all the mayhem and death? If so, can Harper stop this ghastly construct before it kills again? (ROC, Aug., 352 pp., $14.00)
