Victor Bayne has survived demons, ghosts and repeaters. But can he survive a murder house?

Few people would willingly spend the night in a murder house, but Victor Bayne is up for the challenge. He'll do whatever it takes to get a look at his permanent record, including going undercover in a townhouse where a recent death took place. Why not? There was no foul play involved, and as a psychic medium, he'd know if a ghost was creeping up on him. The whole "murder house" claim is just a product of a kid's overactive imagination, and he's confident he has the situation under control.

Until he gets a load of the smell.

Turns out, undercover work is a lot tougher than it looks. Vic misses Jacob something fierce. The subject of his assignment is a real piece of work. His partner has definitely got something to hide…and then the investigation takes a truly bizarre turn.
What happens if the murder house reveals itself to be more than just a schoolyard rumor?

PsyCop is an ongoing series filled with supernatural action and delightfully awkward humor—with a steady undercurrent of gay romance. It's best read in order, so if you're new to the series, start with PsyCop #1, Among the Living…and prepare for a hauntingly good read.

tl:dr: Quintessential Victor Bayne, side of vermin, hold the Jacob!

I would've finished this terrific installment of PsyCop earlier, but I didn't want to be done yet - but ooh that ending. Not long ago I was gifted book 1's audiobook (awesome, btw - and I rarely like audiobooks) and it is fantastic to see how far Vic's come and yet still be his quintessential self.

Also, my name is Terri Anne, so even hyphenated, the neighbor's name kept making me do a double-take.

Lastly, but never leastly: Jacob is just the BEST guy. ( )

Re-read May 2022 (Audio)
(Do I even need to mention that) this is still so much awesome. The audio is everything I've came to expect from Gomez Pugh as Vic. I had a blast with his voice for the old man Hale - and his character is exactly how I imagined Stefan will grow old and sound, hah.
I'm trying very hard to pace myself and not read the whole series at once - and the fact that I need to do that even after my n-th re-read says all you need to know about it. ( )

Four stars for nostalgia? Had a lot of dissatisfying characters who were introduced but never followed through on. I get that it's a part of the undercover work but didn't enjoy it as a reader. Didn't have many of the old side characters, but I felt it really outlined Jacob and Vic's relationship more believably and clearly. I enjoyed the case file, and its conclusion. Hard to keep momentum 10 books in to a series, but I'm looking forward to the next one. ( )

This series just keep getting better and this one was, in a word.... amazing! It may be my favorite of the entire series, which I have read more than once. Jacob is not in this story very much. That is unless you count Vic thinking about him... missing him...bumping into him. Jacob is ever present, just not physically. This is Vic’s first undercover mission. The mission itself is not crazy creepy or weird...I guess “odd” is the best way to describe it. As always, one of the best things is being inside Vic’s head...and Vic’s undercover “head” is priceless!! Then we have the BIG SCENE when Vic goes home. The end of the book brings us back around to the mystery of Vic’s past and sets us up perfectly for the next book. I love physically holding a book and turning the pages. There's just something about that those sooths my "reader's soul". Occasionally I can do e-books or audio books, and this was the audio version. I’ve always thought that along with a really good author to tell the story a book is often made or broke by the person that lends their voice to tell the story. I have to give credit to Gomez Pugh for a fantastic narration. ( )

I'm still amazed at how this series just keeps getting better and better.
I love the new side of Vic we're seeing and his growing confidence. I loved the separation from Jacob and all it made him realize. And I can't wait to see what happens with the main plot in the next book. ( )
