Présentation de l'éditeur

Criss Cross finds the ghosts surrounding Victor getting awfully pushy. The medications that Victor usually takes to control his abilities are threatening to destroy his liver, and his new meds aren't any more effective than sugar pills.

Vic is also adjusting to a new PsyCop partner, a mild-mannered guy named Roger with all the personality of white bread. At least he's willing to spring for the Starbucks.

Jacob's ex-boyfriend, Crash, is an empathic healer who might be able to help Victor pull his powers into balance, but he seems more interested in getting into Victor’s pants than in providing any actual assistance.
Novel, 41,000 words. Contains explicit erotica.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing series and characters 23 mai 2014
Par Adèle
Format:Format Kindle
Started with Among the Living and couldn't stop until I had reached the latest volume. The characters are gripping and feel so real you'd excpect to be able to meet them. Each volume has its own story/mystery, but the characters evolve from one volume to the next and it's like getting to know new friends. Each time you learn something more from their past, the mystery around Vic Baine unravels a little more. The MC's relationship evolves as well, with a very natural and realistic pace, and it's extremely enjoyable. JCP's writing has always been a hit with me, but I think this series is one of her best. Each book gets better and better.
A definite recommendation if you like mysteries/whodunits with a hint of paranormal, and great characters.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Criss Cross 14 mai 2008
Par MNix - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
Victor Bayne is a psychic in the Paranormal Investigation Unit and his sixth sense has kicked into overdrive. Vic sees dead people, but lately he is seeing them everywhere and they are able to touch him now too. Vic's new partner Roger Burke is a nice guy but he gets on Vic's nerves a bit.

Jacob Marks is Vic's lover; he is also a cop. When Vic starts hurting Jacob in his sleep and he doesn't know why or how to stop it, he turns to Jacob's partner Caroline for help, who in turn takes Vic to Jacob's ex boyfriend. Things really get messed up when Vic's old partner, Lisa, tells him that Jacob is a danger to him. Vic has to figure out what's going on before either he or Jacob ends up dead.

Criss Cross has the same wit and out of this world scenarios as the first PsyCop Novel, Among The Living, but Jordan Castillo Price manages to take the same storyline and make it fresh with a fascinating set of new dilemmas and spooky moments in Criss Cross. It's mesmerizing, slightly twisted and definitely has a bizarre storyline that blends with a colorful cast of characters and a sensual romance between Vic and Jacob to create a unique and highly entertaining story.

The thing I like about this series is how unique it is. The writing is witty and inventive. I just love the world that the author has built. Victor is an unlikely hero. He is a mess, literally and figuratively, and he has a bit of a drug problem. Sometimes I have a hard time picturing him doing any actual police work. But somehow it works!

Jacob, on the other hand, is the very definition of Hero with a capital “H”. I don’t know why, but I was suspicious of him in the first book. He is just too perfect, too much of a police department Golden Boy. My opinion of Jacob has changed a lot through this book. I don’t know what I read in the first book that raised a red flag with me, but it’s gone now. Jacob can’t help it if he is a good guy. Victor desperately needs someone to love him like Jacob does. And he obviously has good taste in men, because I loved Crash as much as I love Victor. (Please tell me Crash gets his own story.)

The plot of this story is fast-paced. The ghosts around Victor are creepy and obnoxious. The humor is smart. What’s not to love?

Plot - 5 bookmarks
Character development - 5 bookmarks (Packs a lot into novella length books.)
Love/Sex - 5 bookmarks (Getting more romantic as the books go on.)
Humor - 5 booksmarks (These books actually make me laugh. Not an easy feat.)
Dream cast (otherwise known as who I pictured while reading) - Matthew Gray Gubler (Victor), Channing Tatum (Jacob), Michelle Rodriguez (Lisa), Cherry Jones (Carolyn), Boyd Holbrook (Crash)

I was so freaked out in the very first scene that I worried about even finishing the book, but as usual Castillo Price sucks me in with Victor's acerbic wit and his flailing around, trying to fix things. I just feel for Vic, I cannot help myself. Jacob is a really interesting character too, certainly a complicated guy and there's more to him than meets the eye.

CRISS CROSS (PsyCop #2) by Jordan Castillo Price.

Vic has too many wimpy characteristics. He always wants to get high. He takes double doses of his medicine and other drugs to feel better. Much of the time he is incompetent because he is in a haze. You'd think that since he's been seeing ghosts for most of his life, he'd be used to it and have ways to deal with it. But no, he's freaking out all the time trying to run away from every ghost he sees. The reason he's a psycop is because he can talk to ghosts. I was disappointed that he didn't use that skill in either of the first two books. But to be fair he does talk to one or two ghosts briefly in each book - but not related to solving a case.

Second, in addition to running away from ghosts, he runs away from people - his friends, his acquaintances, his lover. He buys crystals to help him with a problem, but then he runs away from the guy without knowing how to use them. Later he must return to the guy to ask how to use the crystals. A ghost tells him how (which may or may not be true), so Vic runs away from the guy again without getting instructions. When others ask Vic how things are, he lies and says fine so they will go away and leave him alone. This did not interest me. It frustrated me. Experts say "don't write about wimps." I agree. Vic is a wimp.

Vic leaves his phone turned off, so when friends try to reach him, they can't. He intends to tell Jacob (his lover) about a problem, but he wimps out and doesn't tell him. When Jacob starts to talk about something, Vic says "Do we have to talk about it right this second?" Again, running away.

Later when some bad guys are caught and the cops are asking Vic for details, Vic doesn't tell them that the bad guys have other safe houses. I did not like his reason. Some might say the reason was stupid. Others might say he had a believable motive for keeping the secret, but he didn't act on it. So his lying to the cops was for nothing.

I really liked the relationship with Jacob. It's hot. Jacob is so intense and into Vic. It's too bad the surrounding story was weak.

Criss Cross starts off right where Among the Leaving left off. Jacob is homeless due to the events in Among the Living and staying with Vic. The transition is not easy on Vic, but the guys' relationship is new, Jacob seems confident and Vic, typical to his personality - - internally worries and questions everything. JCP hits so many things right with this series and this book is no exception.

Setting: Urban and Chicago. JCP gets it so right. She knows the city. The opening scene begins with Vic fishing with his partner - sounds ideal right? Ha - not if you are fishing on the Southside of Chicago. Here is an excerpt from that scene, "A train clanged by to the north of us and the scream of a siren drifted by from a stretch of elevated highway. Nature." Ha - nature in Chicago.

Characters: JCP gradually introduced 4 key characters in Among the Living. There is no overloading of people and readers do not need to try and keep names straight. JCP slowly leads readers into her stories. She puts flesh on the characters and lets them out to play so we can get to know them. We see their flaws and some of their good qualities. Criss Cross continues with the main four characters (Carolyn, Jacob, Vic, and Lisa) and adds another character - Crash. Crash, what a fun character - a little bit punk, a little bit new age and a lot of attitude. "A man's hand, wrist covered in black O-ring bracelets and silver on every finger ... Crash was maybe thirty, with spiked-up bleached white hair and a ring through his nose."

While the story is told from Vic's first person point of view, each character seems to exist independent of Vic. Vic's insecurities and worries continue. In that same fishing scene, Vic asks, "Shouldn't I have, uh ... a lifejacket on?" His partner answers, "S'okay, Victor. Water ain't but waist high." Poor Vic, he makes me want to hold his hand, the guy never gets a break.

Drama: JCP builds up to it slowly. We meet new characters, we get re-acquainted with the ones we already knew and then bam - the drama begins. Not all is well with Vic, he is sick and has to undergo numerous tests. But don't worry, despite his problems, Vic is the same old lovable, insecure and worried guy, "I thought of the not-gay brochure I'd stuffed into my back jeans pocket."

"She slipped a pamphlet into my hands. On the cover was a triangle with a rainbow inside and I nearly spewed the bagel the nurse had given me. Jesus Christ, how'd she know I was gay? It was the b******. They'd found traces of s***n in my mouth. Oh God, I was so fired. And then I'd lose my health coverage, and then my liver would explode."

Poor Vic, not only does he have to deal with seeing dead people everywhere he has to worry about his employer finding out that he is gay, his employer finding out that he is dating another cop and now he has health issues.

Sex: JCP can write STEAMY (all caps necessary to express how damned well she writes the steamy scenes). These books are not for readers sensitive to sex scenes and they are not for readers who are bothered by gay relationships.

In the end, Vic surprises himself - and the readers. PsyCop is one of my favorite urban fantasy series and I highly recommend it.
