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 Melissa - 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.

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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 PsyCops series review - BRILLIANT 6 août 2015
Par Lori Powell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I have just finished marathoning this series (except for the first one, I'd already read that one), including the shorts and I still want more. MORE, I tell you.

Wow. I don't really know where to start this review... actually, that's a lie. I'm going to start with Vic, because, for me, this is all about Vic. I love Vic. I LOVE Vic. I LOVE VIC. Totally and utterly. Starting with the cover model used (I mean HALLO, he's gorgeous and exactly how I pictured Vic, 9 times out of 10 the cover model used doesn't match my mental image but JCP nailed it for me). That scowl, that stubble, that can't-quite-be-bothered look. Perfect.

And, his personality matched. Perfect in that not-at-all-perfect way. A childhood that consisted of moving from one foster family to another. Drug use to control his psychic ability. His psychic ability, the dude sees ghosts, most often caught in the moment of their violent death. Time spent in Camp Hell where he was abused to find out the extent of his powers. Being part of a psycop team, disliked by the rest of the force because they don't understand, or fear, what he can do. Oh, and he's gay. Not that he has a problem being gay, but it isn't exactly embraced in the job he holds.

So, all in all, Vic fears the shadows. He doesn't can't trust easily. Humans and spiritual entities alike are just too willing to use him for their own gain. I'm surprised he holds things together as well as he does. But he does, in the snarkiest, grumpiest, most gorgeous way possible.

Have I mentioned I may love him a little??

As the series develops we see him embrace what he can do, albeit sometimes very reluctantly. His ability is stronger than most realise, because Vic wasn't born yesterday and he knows that being classified a level 5 psychic is risky enough, without anyone realising he is actually stronger. The more he learns about what he can do though, the more responsibility he takes on. It's a funny (perfect) mix of reluctance and responsibility. Kinda like knowing you have to get up to your baby for the fifth time that night no matter how exhausted you are. The difference being you undoubtedly love your baby more than Vic loves the ghosts/paranormal entities, oh, and your baby is most definitely less dangerous.

We meet Vic in book one at his, psycop, partner's retirement party. This is where we also meet Jacob, the non-psychic member of another psycop team. Jacob is seemingly (at least in Vic's eyes) everything Vic isn't. Handsome, personable, super-nice and he has a real thing for psychic abilities. like a real thing. As well as their adventures as psycops and ghost hunting (!!) this series is very much about the relationship between Jacob and Vic.

Now here I have a confession. I love nice characters in books. People use the word nice often in distaste, as if there could be nothing more boring. I think nice is very underrated and, what can I say, it's a quality I appreciate, in fiction and RL. However, yep, there's a however, because Jacob was so nice for several books, I was expecting Jacob to reveal a nasty side - I hope it's not too much of a spoiler when Isay it never appears!!

I did love Jacob and the further the series went on the more I appreciated him. He was there for Vic, wholeheartedly and, boy, did that give him plus points in my book. It's fair to say, not all those Vic thought he could trust could actually be trusted.

In fact, JCP writes fantastic characters. Crash is another favourite, I'm not going to elaborate on him too much because I feel to enjoy Crash properly, you need to experience him first hand. Secondary characters are often my weakness (I sometimes feel those second in nature to the MCs can be more interesting, though in this case Vic holds his own), they can take an interesting story and just make it...more. Crash, Miss Mattie, Lisa... a plethora of others, they all just work to enhance an already fabulous series. JCP manages this without taking the focus off Vic and the main story line.

The ghostly goings on...
The author has the knack of balancing emotional storyline perfectly with action storyline. Each thread is carefully interwoven, clues and hints dropped throughout the manuscript. Sometimes I thought I knew what was happening...at times I was right, at times I wasn't. Sometimes things twisted and turned making me second guess my opinion. In fact, it was just as any mystery story should be. The interaction of guessing and re-guessing is an integral part of the enjoyment for me. If it is too obvious what's going on I skim read to find out if I'm right or not! JCP struck the balance well.

I loved each story. I'm not sure I have one that stands out as a favourite, or any that I felt were meh. Each story worked well, on their own and as part of the series. When I say that, I'm not suggesting you start with book 6, or skip the 3rd book, reading each book definitely benefits the whole psycpos experience, but each book is a contained story in its own right. While some threads carry on throughout the series, there are no dreaded cliff-hangers. None of that stuff that's meant to entice you to the next story (but generally just makes me made as hell that I've only got half a story!)

I'm not going to go into detail about each storyline, what would be the point of you reading them if I did, but I will say I genuinely had difficulty putting each book down to do those everyday things, you know, like go to work, or look after the kids...

I also read one book after another (with, as I said the exception of book 1 - though I'm seriously considering a re-read to remember where it all began) and I definitely have a book hangover, I've DNF'd two stories since I finished this series (yesterday) already. Send recs ASAP!

One last thing before I go. Voice actor, Gomez Pugh, narrates these audio books. Now I read the books so I can't vouch exactly for these in audio, however I did listen to the audio version of Body Art by Jordan Castillo Price, read by Gomez Pugh, and thoroughly enjoyed his narration.

Par Robert Carnevali - Publié sur Amazon.com

Our favorite gay medium, Vic Bayne, returns in the 2nd installment of the Psycop series. Unwilling to go back to his apartment where the incubus almost killed him and was turned into a mass of protoplasm ("Among the Living", the first novel), Jacob has moved in with Vic and both are testing the waters of cohabitation. In each character's mind, they realize this may or may not be temporary as neither has broached the subject of actually living together. Vic's friend Lisa is now in training at PsyTrain, and he has been assigned a new partner, Roger Burke, a rather affable eager-to-please who accepts Vic and his sexuality all in stride. This all seems well enough, and things should be going well for Vic, except that his psychic ability has gone into hyperactive mode. The dead are now clearly visible everywhere, and they seek him out when he's around. Constantly reaching for him, he can actually physically feel them and starts to lose control and break down.

It's a very enjoyable story. Vic is a wonderfully complex character, and his sarcastic wit gives the story a lighter edge when needed. As with any good story, Vic undergoes some growth, which adds to the empathy one can feel for him. Too many serial stories don't let their characters grow, trying to keep them the same as they were in the first book, so it's pleasant when you can see and chart the growth Vic is gradually going through. Other characters aren't quite as fleshed out as Vic is, but they're still interesting and enjoyable. The story stumbles a little at times by stretching plausibility (like the introduction of a device that lets Vic tune in or tune out spirits, which raises more questions as to the nature of the spirits than it answers), but overall, it's an immensely interesting and enjoyable novel.

This is the second book I have read in the PsyCop series, and happens to be the second book lol You must read the first one, Among The Living.

More Victor!!!!! More of his humour, his wit, his dirty mind, his sexy relationship with Jacob, and of course, his crazyyy job!!!! I started reading and couldn't put it down! Devoured every word.

I love Jordan Castillo's writing. It is intelligent, thoughtful, intense and filled with information that really grabs your attention and keeps it the whole time. Seriously good stuff!!

Can't wait to keep reading more in this series!

**Audiobook Review**

I have to say I'm not normally a huge paranormal fan, but there is just something about the way Ms Castillo Price writes that I simply adore.

This book made me feel so frustrated for Vic as he tries to deal with all the strange things going on around him and what to do about his senses going wild on him.

I have to say I loved the twist. I totally didn't see it coming. Okay, I was starting to get a little bit of an idea, but still didn't see it for what it was.

Again, just like Book One, Gomez Pugh does an amazing job. I absolutely loved the way he narrated the book! He gives so much life to each character and the flow of the story is so smooth and real... even through the naughty scenes he narrates it just as it would be read, which brings so much more passion to the scenes.... and it's not only the naughty bits... Heck, it's every scene he does that in. The scary ones, the passionate ones... Just all of it. Very well done.
