Poltergeist by Kat Richardson Recommended Ages: In this sequel to GreywalkerSeattle-based private detective Harper Blaine takes further steps toward understanding her strange new ability to see, and move around in, the world of ghosts, vampires, and necromancers.
Months after her cases start to get weird—thanks to a near-death-experience that gave her this unwanted talent—Harper gets called in to catch whoever is faking results in a college psychology experiment.
The paranormal catch is that the experiment uses a group of richardsln to create a Poltergeist. This means either someone is sabotaging the study, or something really weird is going on. The research has to do with exploiting the tensions within a group of people, and giving them permission to do things as a group that they would never dream of doing on their own.
Study protocols require the research kah to be in control of what is fake and what is real. As knocks and rattles escalate to rampaging furniture and projectile jewelry, people start to get hurt.
Because no sooner does she take the case, than the entity created by the experiment kills one of the participants. So much for group-think phenomena! Could the experiment have conjured up something really powerful?

The bigger question is whether the nature of the experiment, and the way it was run, might have turned loose a real, flesh-and-blood psychopath. With the deadly entity drawing power from Harper herself among othersand the group dynamics of the test subjects heating up like a pressure cooker, and her own client trying to frame her and her technical consultant for theft, Harper has no choice but to accept more of the paranormal gift that she never wanted.
She will need the help of a witch and her parapsychologist husband, the advice of three pre-teen ghost whisperers, the expertise of the second-scariest vampire in the Pacific Northwest hint: This is the second of so far eight books in the ongoing Greywalker series.
It combines a touch of romance, a streak of warm family comedy featuring a rambunctious toddler who thinks he is a rhinocerosa tightly paced detective story cooked over-medium if not hard-boileda glimpse into the dog-eat-poltergeist world of academic research, and a sometimes affectionate, sometimes heebie-jeebie-giving tribute to the city of Seattle, all in one thrilling tale kaf wicked weirdness. Beyond doubt, there will be plenty of darkness.
After all, the next book on deck is titled Underground. This book was excellent! I highly recommend this book — buy it now!
