Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died, for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker, treading the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And she’s discovering that her new abilities are landing her in all sorts of “strange” cases.
After being shot in the back and dying-again- Greywalker Harper Blaine’s only respite from the chaos is her work. But while conducting a pre-trial investigation in the Olympic Peninsula, she sees a ghostly car accident whose victim insists that he was murdered and that the nearby community of Sunset Lakes is to blame.
Harper soon learns that the icy waters of the lake hide a terrible power, and a host of hellish beings under the thrall of a sinister cabal that will use the darkest of arts to achieve their fiendish ends…
Harper was doing some pretrial investigating for Nannette Grover, an attorney who was a steady client. Driving home from what she thought was a wasted interview, Harper had an unexpected vision while driving home of what appeared to be an accident. An SUV on fire pushed up against a tree. She backs up and goes to see if she can help. She gets to the SUV as the ghost floats out of his burned out SUV. He tells her that it wasn’t an accident, and then she asks him his name, he says Steven. He wants her “Family… Blood Lake, we should never…. “ and fades away, leaving Harper more curious than ever.
The Olympic Peninsula is not Harper’s usual territory and she finds it extremely uncomfortable there. She heads back home, going into Nannette’s office to file her report on the supposed witness which brought her to the Peninsula.
This is the sixth book in the Greywalker series and the first that takes her out of her comfort zone, making her really stretch to find a killer or killers, and solve the mystery of Blood Lake. I found the book not only an enjoyable read, but also an interesting and multi threaded plot line. I highly recommend the entire Greywalker series to lovers of Urban Fantasy and Mysteries.
