Sharp

Alex Hughes


HISTORY HAS A WAY OF REPEATING ITSELF, EVEN FOR TELEPATHS.…

As a Level Eight telepath, I am the best police interrogator in the department. But I’m not a cop—I never will be—and my only friend on the force, Homicide Detective Isabella Cherabino, is avoiding me because of a telepathic link I created by accident.

And I might not even be an interrogator for much longer. Our boss says unless I pull out a miracle, I’ll be gone before Christmas. I need this job, damn it. It’s the only thing keeping me sane.

Parts for illegal Tech—the same parts used to bring the world to its knees in the Tech Wars sixty years ago—are being hijacked all over the city. Plus Cherbino's longtime nemesis, a cop killer, has resurfaced with a vengeance. If I can stay alive long enough, I just might be able to prove my worth, once and for all...

After reading the first novel in the series, Clean, I was lucky to be able to jump right into the next one. Adam continues to be the underdog, not so much with the addiction issue in this one but now functioning with a diminished telepathic ability due to the ending of Clean.

Enter the FBI, more Guild intrusion, and continued hostility from the police department and he just can't seem to catch a break. 

I was just as hooked in this installment, as there were so many elements going on and in the end, they all tied together. Which for me, makes it a real page turner.

I would like to know more about the Tech Wars. As pieces keep trickling out, I find myself to be very curios about reading more about this. Hoping for more exploration of it later or maybe even a prequel...? 

I am fortunate that I have been chosen to preview the next book in the series, Marked. So I can dive right back into Mindspace.
