Kat Richardson lives on a sailboat in Seattle with her husband, a crotchety old cat, and two ferrets. She rides a motorcycle, shoots target pistol, and does not own a TV.

Only 8 left in stock (more on the way). Only 10 left in stock (more on the way). Kat Richardson lives on a sailboat in Seattle with her husband, a crotchety old cat, and two ferrets.

It rears up from Fifth Avenue like three obsidian tors melded into one jutting prominence by some weird volcanic fit. In defiance of the prevailing winds, curved surfaces face Puget Sound like black. It is the bastion of billion-dollar corporations and millionaire executives. Someone called it the most obscene erection of ego on the PacificCoast and I don't think he was too far wrong. Occupying the top two floors is the most expensive businessman's club in the city-the Columbia Tower Club-out-Babbitting even the venerable Washington Athletic Club.

Jumped right into the second book of the Greywalker series. Fun reading about how Harper has gotten a better grasp on going into the Grey and doing what she needs to get done. For this second foray into the Grey, she has a professor for a client and he needs to know if there is outside interference in a poltergeist study. Harper's got to deal more with the Grey and those that populate this time. She's finding it a bit easier to do that. Once again, to me, the story is fast paced and a can't put it down. I read for entertainment for me and if I can into a story right away, great. The Greywalker series is one of those that I can't get enough of. We're learning a bit more about Harper's life in each novel and I'm looking forward to finding out more and how she's going to adapt to the Grey. Already have the next novel to start on soon.

Second in the Harper Blaine "Greywalker" paranormal series, featuring a young woman P.I. who died for two minutes and since that time is able to walk the world that exists between the living and the dead, known as "the Grey." In this book, Harper is hired by a college professor who is running experiments to see if the collective minds of a group of people can make their own poltergeist. He wants her to figure out whom, if anyone, is faking some phenomenon that have begun to crop up, or else authenticate that the experiment has worked and is valid. When one of the participants of the group ends up dead--beaten and mangled--in his apartment, Harper sets out to find whether the energy entity that has become Celia, the poltergeist, did Mark in or whether he was killed by someone all too human.

I enjoyed this book a lot; I wish we had the option of giving half-stars here at Amazon, as I'd give it four-and-a-half. It certainly did have an interesting premise and storyline, though it did take me a good 50 pages to really get sucked in to the story. The only downfall for me is that Harper still feels somewhat "dry" to me--even though we learn more *about* her, what she likes, dislikes, what's important to her, we haven't yet really been shown who she is...the messy parts, the 'soul' of Harper seem to be sitting there just beyond our grasp. It's hard to explain just what I mean. Still, this is a series I enjoy and I am defintely looking forward to the next one, and hope to get to know Harper even better next time around.

One thing I really appreciate is that there isn't a bunch of gratuitous sex and continual sexual tension between Harper and every male she encounters like in some paranormal books. I mean, after all, if I want romance and erotica, I'll read books from those genres!

I really wanted to like this book. Kat Richardson is a very talented writer who clearly has done her research on psychokinesis ("PK") and the Philip experiments - and therein may be the problem I had with the book.

The first three chapters of this book are dedicated to setting up the case and explaining PK and the Philip experiments with little to no attention paid to character development or a broader story arc and even 80-odd pages into the book, Richardson is still explaining theory and case studies. I really enjoyed the first book in the series and was looking forward to reconnecting with the characters I had formed a bond with but the first half of the book was so bogged down with an in-depth study of PK that it was a real challenge to hold my interest long enough to get on with the case.

If you are a reader with a cultivated interest in PK or the Philip experiments then you'll love this book, Kat Richardson is a talent and she has done her homework. If however, you're like me and you're a reader who was looking more for continued character development and growth in the overall arc to the series, then you're going to have get a little more than halfway through the book before you hit pay dirt. Even after two books in the series, Harper Blaine is a little dry and still not very well defined for the reader and that's a disappointment.

This is not a bad book, it's just not what I expected as the second installation of a series. I am going to read the third book in the series and I hope that I get more of the character development that I'm looking for in a series.

I pre-ordered this book and read it as soon as it came out... I am just now writing a review because it has taken me this long to digest the story. To be honest, I struggled reading through this book. In one review someone suggested that the plotline moved very slowly; I second that!
I think that Ms. Richardson had some really great plot points, and I really did like her using a poltergeist study as the main point, but I would really like her to explain more about the "grey" and the strange things that happen to the main character, and this book really left me dangling. I feel like the Ms. Richardson got a bit lost when writing this story, and might have been thinking to bring more into it, but backed off at the last minute and edited a chunk of material out (or maybe the editor did that) anyway, the end result is that the reader is left feeling like something is missing, but really can't identify it.

Overall this series is still very readable and interesting. Ms. Richardson stays very true to her writing style which is very clean and strong. She is well researched and that really does stand out... in this book, it may have hindered her own story in an effort to stay true to life, but overall her sotry comes across as very plausible.
She has a very unique voice in this genre that is clear in both stories in the series. Even though there are still rough edges to work out, this book is a diamond in the rough.

Book number two of a nine book urban fantasy series. I read the well formatted and bound MMPB. I will not be buying any more books in the series.

This series is just not my cup of tea. The greywalker thing is just not very interesting to me.
