Image of Shadow Touch (Dirk & Steele, Book 2)
Psychic healer Elena Baxter thought she had managed to keep her extraordinary gift a secret. However, after she is kidnapped, Elena realizes that someone knows. But what do they want with her?

Dirk and Steele psychic operative Artur Loginov is working on tracking down a serial killer when he too is kidnapped. Upon awakening in captivity, Artur is stunned to discover that an evil consortium is abducting paranormal individuals and conducting horrific tests on them. The fact that members of the consortium themselves are paranormal only makes things worse. Artur's brain has been so damaged that he almost dies, but an encounter with Elena saves his life -- she heals him and, in doing so, creates a telepathic bond. Escape becomes their first priority as Artur, Elena and a few shapeshifters make a break for it. But learning what the appallingly powerful head of the consortium is about to unleash may force a change in plans.

Book Two in this mind-blowing series proves that Liu is a world-class talent. Her stories are filled with extraordinary characters, and plotlines that are ingenious and riveting. Waiting for the next book in the series will be torture! (Feb., 368 pp., $6.99)
