Living with the Dead by Kelley Armstrong
December 15, 2008 - Amy Phelps
The fabulous and New York Times bestselling author Kelley Armstrong is back with another in her series of Women of the Otherworld in "Living with the Dead."
This time, readers are introduced to a new character, Robyn Peltier, a childhood friend of "Personal Demon's" Hope Adams. Robyn's world was torn apart by the senseless killing of her husband. Her new life as a PR consultant to a spoiled star seems like a harmless distraction, until said spoiled star ends up dead with Robyn as the main suspect.
Robyn turns to a former police officer for help, only to have him end up dead. Soon there's another officer on her trail, and he has some unique abilities ("I see dead people!") to help him on the case.
Robyn ends up going to Hope and her strange boyfriend, Karl, both of whom have some unique abilities of their own. As Hope and Karl track down the supernatural connection, they find that Robyn has gotten herself involved in a turf war that spans generations, and one person's goal to gain as much power as possible, no matter what the cost.
Armstrong's strength is in believable characters that entwine you into their story - be they good guys or bad guys, a regular human or something a bit extra. I was a bit disappointed there wasn't as much romance in this book as in previous ones, but still loved the story. This is another surefire hit for Armstrong.
"Living with the Dead" is published by Bantam Spectra. It is $22 and 372 pages long.
