Detective Victor Bayne is a member of the Paranormal Investigations team. He and his life partner Detective Jacob Marks are back in this third installment of PsyCop.
Vic is visiting Jacob’s family in Wisconsin for Thanksgiving which is scary enough, and the family togetherness is wearing thin even before dinner. Lucky for Vic his boss calls him back to work in the nick of time to head up a missing persons’ investigation. During their return drive to Chicago Jacob again brings up the idea of the two of them moving in together and Vic agrees to go house-hunting despite his reservations.
In between trying to kick his drug habit so that he can function effectively at work, dealing with his new uptight PsyCop partner Zig, solving a serial murder case with no bodies, and finding a new place to live with no ghosts in residence, Vic is stressed out and his life is full to overflowing.
This story is extremely dark and eerie, with the trademark raunchy sex and weird sense of humor for which Ms Price is fast becoming known. The incredible sex between Vic and Jacob in the hallway outside Vic’s apartment, just after his session with one of his ghostly friends, is mind blowing even before Jacob’s suggestion of a ménage with an old boyfriend. The book takes you on a roller coaster ride and the chase scene, with a disembodied ghostly voice directing the action, is totally unbelievable. Body and Soul: A PsyCop Novel is a terrific read that was hard to put down until the very last page.
