Format: Hardcover
She goes by the name of Grace Renquist. She has been running from her past for over a year. With her new identity Grace lives in Eclipse Bay, Oregon. She even managed to pass the background check when she applied for a job with J&J. From her computer in Eclipse Bay, Grace works as a reference librarian in the Society's Bureau of Genealogy. She specializes in the familial patterns of genetically inherited psychic traits. Her psychic talent is Aura Profiling. She can read more in a target's aura than anyone else. So it is no wonder that Fallon Jones, head of the West Coast office of J&J, chooses Grace for a simple ID job. All Grace has to do is check out Eubank's aura to see if he murdered someone recently. Eubank is en route to Hawaii. Luckily, Fallon already knows of someone who resides on Hawaii to partner Grace.

Former Homicide Detective Luther Malone has the high-level talent of Aura Manipulation. Financially, Luther is broke and accepts the J&J job as bodyguard for Grace. Good money for simply sitting in a lavish hotel while a librarian peeks at Eubank's aura. But Luther had no idea the librarian would be so young or easy on his eyes. The reading of Eubank is a cinch. Problem is that close to a dozen Nightshade operatives are gathering at the hotel at the same time. Something big seems to be happening. Luther begins a bit of investigating while Grace remains in the background. After all, she has zero field experience. Unfortunately, Grace notices someone about to murder one of the hotel's staff with a psychic voice. By saving the employee, Grace makes herself the target of a psychopathic opera singer who is determined to locate the librarian and give her personal performance.

***** The story takes place in the present.

OK this is the fifth novel in the Arcane series by Jane Ann Krentz and its going to be something that you'll have to have read the whole lot for or just end up missing the whole point of the series. As a newbie, its going to be pretty tough to dive in at the deep end and have a clear understanding of where you are and you'll miss a number of the references within to previous outings for some of the characters within.

It is well written, the plot is fairly crisp and the characters keep the reader interested with this title fulfilling the potential of the key ingredients that have won the author fans the world over including fully developing the romantic angle within this title. Add to this a pretty slick story arc and its something that will please a number of readers and potentially win her a few more.

following the trend of the 2 previous contemporary books in the series this book is fairly predictable about the plot etc. J & J investigative agency is brought in by a victims family to identify the killer and this is where grace comes in as she can identify people by their auras so off she goes to hawaii. but grace has a past and not a good one, she has been living under a fake indentity. her protection in hawaii is ex cop luther malone who has a bit of back story of his own. although predictable couldnt put it down as i was dying to know what would become of the bad guys.

This Archane Society series comprises some of JAK's best writing ever. The storylines are great, obviously with the same overall theme running through, but they are distinct whole stories so you don't lose anything by not having read the other books. The characters in this book are particularly engaging and the chemistry between the two leads is sizzling. I would thoroughly recommend this book. Can't wait for the next one in the series to come out.

It started well, and I'd just read something by the same writer, but by half way through I just thought, do I actually want to read on? When the answer was not much I stopped, and I can't say I regret it.

The Arcane Society series of books are fast becoming my favorite. They are well written and always have great character arcs, and this book is no different. the hero is not like any hero out there as he walks with a cane and does'nt like guns and the heroine is quite and bookish. It is a good read and am looking forward to many more books like this.
