What a treat, to have a full length PsyCops novel after the novella length stories leading up to it. JCP deftly weaves a host of subplots together around the main story, concerning Vic's paranoia about being watched by a shadowy organisation, and the hypnotic regression he goes through in an attempt to find out vital clues from his time at Camp Hell. There is also a haunted hospital to clean up, relationship problems for Vic and Jacob, Vic's growing control over his psychic powers and an interesting development for Jacob (no spoilers!)

At one point, I was a little worried that the focus on the conspiracy was going to overwhelm what it was I most loved about the previous PsyCop books - I have often found that when TV series get too involved in overarching conspiracies they forget to produce interesting and fun episodes (I'm thinking of the X Files in particular!). However, despite the rocky patch in Vic and Jacob's private life, there is still plenty of what makes PsyCops great: sly humour, creepy hauntings, Vic's endearing messiness, scorching sex scenes and wonderful character interaction.

I would have liked to have seen a little more of Crash, but other than that, I can't fault this! I'm now off to read all the PsyCop shorts...

Josephine Myles Reading this one again, prior to Spook Squad coming out. Love this one so much! Very possibly my favourite in the series... although I seem to think that about all the books while I'm reading them :)


Susinok I need to re-read these, and then read the stories in their proper places. So excited!


Urbanista Me too. Totally irrational and obsessed about this series.

Definitely! I'm really enjoying getting back into Vic's mind :D

It's a perfectly rational response to such fantastic writing ;)

Me either! I'm off to read more Camp Hell right now :D


Susan YAY! So glad you're loving these Jo!!!!! One of my favorite series! :)


Urbanista Swoon? And JCP does the covers. Awesomeness! I'm selling blood, food stamps, and dog fur to buy it.

Oh, mine too! I've read the first four books several times now, and I think this is my third go on Camp Hell. Really looking forward to revisiting GhosTV next :D

It'll be worth it. I'd give a couple of pints of blood for the next one, even if it did leave me too woozy to read the book.
