About this book

Psychic Anna Gareau and public relations expert Collie Kostyna keep things quiet for local magicians and for their biggest client, an underground supernatural society known as the Embassy.

In Grayling Cross, an investigator arrives in town on the trail of a missing teenage psychic, and hires Anna and Collie to be his liaisons to the local magic community. Troublingly, though, he turns out to have a knack for suppressing magic, leaving magicians powerless and vulnerable. And when an Embassy employee is found murdered in a house nobody should have been able to enter, with a weapon that never should have killed him, suspicion naturally falls upon Anna and Collie’s new client.

Reviews

"Who knew that Edmonton had such a rich underworld, filled with crazy characters and magic? If you liked Mike Carey's Felix Castor series, read Gayleen Froese's Grayling Cross and settle in for a fun ride with the paranormal world's Thelma and Louise."

~ Halli Villegas, author of The Hair Wreath and Other Stories

"Gayleen Froese invited you to her party? What'll it be like? I'll tell you what it'll be like. A freakshow. Weirdos slam-dancing inside a weird-smelling basement apartment, people you'd like to date and people you've been trying to avoid, and then someone'll up and kill somebody, and she'll drag you out into the alley and across town trying to figure out who did the dee. Sure, you'll laugh. Sure, you'll get freaked out. Sure, you won't be able to forget it."

~ Minister Faust, author of The Coyote Kings of the Space-Age Bachelor Pad

"Froese's writing is taut, laced with humour, and as efficient as one might want for what is, at its core, a diverting romp. She never takes the story too seriously, but neither is there any air of dismissiveness. The larger than life characters are rendered with broad gestures, lacking subtle nuance, but this too is appropriate for such an outsized tale."

~ Robert J. Wiersema, author of Before I Wake and Bedtime Story (Quill & Quire, May 2011)
