If you like brain twisters, this is the one to read. The book is thrilling, absorbing and tantalizing to keep you glued to the pages to the end. My guess and wishful thinking is that there will be spinoff books with this group again, for sure something exciting to follow.
A  (secret) government group is created by Adam Harrison (famed paranormal investigator) to investigate the implied suicide of the senator’s wife.  The place a historical Mansion in New Orleans and here the fun begins; ghosts, mystery after mystery, twists and turns and you are in for an unexpected conclusion. Who will be to blame human or supernatural for the crimes that develop under the roof of this mansion, will be the question to haunt you to the end.  Great read, my only complaint is that the end could have been less rushed, but none the less great.

Summary: A secret government unit is formed under the oversight of Adam Harrison, famed paranormal investigator. The six members he’s gathered know a little of the otherworldly – each has honed a psychic talent of their own.

Jackson Crowe, part English, part Cheyenne, heads the group. Haunted by his experience with an ancestral ghost who saved his life as a child, and the recent murders of two previous teammates, Jackson can’t tell if Adam’s demoted him or given him an extraordinary opportunity. Despite his link to the realm of spirits, he’s well aware that the living commit the most heinous crimes, with spiritualist charlatans existing merely to fool and seduce the unwary.

To counterbalance Jackson’s careful skepticism, Adam Harrison has paired him with Angela Hawkins, a young woman who learned the painful lesson of loss at an early age. A police officer utilizing her paranormal intuition in Virginia, she already has her hands full. But Adam’s call to New Orleans is strong.

The case: In a historic mansion in New Orleans’s French Quarter, a senator’s wife falls to her death from a balcony. Most think she jumped, distraught over the loss of her young son. Some say she was pushed. And yet others believe she was beckoned by the ghostly spirits that inhabit the house – once the site of a serial killer’s grisly work.

Whether supernatural or all too human, crimes of passion, greed and desire will cast the pair into danger of losing their lives…and their immortal souls.
