Since the senseless death of her husband, Robyn realizes that she has to make a new start. A PR consultant, she moves to L.A. and is employed by an empty headed celebutante.

Hope is a half demon who works for the council. She is Robyn’s best friend, and she and her werewolf lifemate have followed her to L.A. to keep an eye on her, fortunately her job as a tabloid reporter allows for this.

Finn is a homicide detective who can talk to the dead. This can be a help or a hindrance depending on exactly what the deceased saw before death. His new sidekick is Robyn’s late husband.

When Robyn’s celebrity client is gunned down at an exclusive club, she is the main suspect, but Portia had a paparazzo stalker and Robyn’s cell phone holds the only clue. With the help of half-demon Hope and werewolf Karl, she finds out about a world that she never dreamed existed. Her only hope lies with beings that she thought belonged in fiction novels, but others from the same world could end her life also.

Recently I have lost track of this series, but I am definitely going to go back and read all of them now. Ms. Armstrong has added another strong novel to the series here. Hope and Karl have appeared in previous stories and their characters have grown. Robyn is a conservative character with a lot of common sense thrown into a situation that she has no idea how to deal with, and Finn finds that he is not the only one with unusual talents. Adele and the kumpania of clairvoyants is positively creepy, a sociopath with paranormal talents and a cult-like community of others. The plot is fast-moving and told in three points of view, very helpful in this case. It stands alone well, but reading the other books would be helpful as well as very enjoyable. This is one paranormal not to be missed.
