Poltergeist (Greywalker #2)
I’d like to start this review off by first saying that I’m not 100% sure whether it’s the narration or the story that’s making me consistently rate this series 3 stars, so you might want to take my thoughts with a grain of salt until I figure that one out. Anyway, I think that I enjoyed this installment slightly less than its predecessor on account of all the psycho babble & lengthy experiment explanations. I felt like I was back in college listening to a professor dr ...more

Whoa...the frauds aren't all that surprising especially with what's revealed about his past but the direction that Tuckman's experiment takes and its results are very unexpected.
I like what Richardson is doing with the series as a whole and this particular installment was pretty tense. My only objection is that Richardson hasn't worked her continuing char ...more

I get the feeling the writer has picked a tall, hot, slim chick as her protagonist, but then transferred her own personality to the character, making for some unlikely character traits. The descriptions of the character paint her as being cool in every sense, but her actions are more of someone who is heavy and lonely
The story is interesting and kept me entertained, plus Seattle is the only city I've been to in the US and the history fascinated me, every time Pioneer Square is mentioned makes me smile.
I find Quinton intriguing, he's hiding something but what?
She gets hired to check out an experiment that is run by a scientist who says the people he is working with can make a poltergeist by their own thoughts. He thinks someone is trying to mess up the experiment and so hires Harper.
