Leda Foley is a travel agent with light psychic abilities, who incidentally saves the life of a homicide detective. He enlists her help to solve a recent murder case which has hit a dead end, and she agrees…if he’ll help her look into the unsolved murder of her fiancé 3 years ago.

Very fun. This is a bit of a departure for Cherie Priest from her usual horror, steampunk, etc. but her clever and breezy writing shines through. I loved all of the side characters, and Leda & Niki’s friendship, and really really loved the idea of psychically figuring out what song people want to hear as a way to show off / practice / hone her powers. It’s voluntary, totally harmless, and can’t be faked. However, despite the great writing and worldbuilding this is still a police procedural. Detective Grady is by-the-book, doesn’t abuse his power, and ensures Leda doesn’t overstep. But it’s just not my favorite genre.… (mais)

I wanted to like it but it is so flat to me, the characters all feel like the same person, I am not engaged at all. Mostly writing this so that I don't try to read future installments.

Took a while for me to get into it, but I ended up quite liking it. Didn't grab me as much as my last book, but I will look for more books by the author. I did have trouble placing it in a timeframe - the text and conversations didn't immediately place me in the era, and so sometimes I had to concentrate to remember "when" this was. I did like the characters though, and the concept is great. The tension build toward the end of the book was gripping.
