A World Apart
(Shades Below #1)
by L.J.K. Olivia
genre: Urban Fantasy
Private detective Jesper MacMillian is sure he's seen it all. Following a long recovery after a horrific accident, his life is finally the way he wants it- or at least, close enough. The only monsters on his radar are the ones that keep him awake at night. When a grief-stricken couple begs him to find their lost son, it seems like just another day at the office.
Lena Alan is your friendly neighborhood medium. She sees ghosts, she talks to ghosts, and when necessary, she keeps them from interfering in the world of the living. A city like San Francisco has more than enough ghosts to keep her busy, but a shocking visitation puts her on a collision course with MacMillian and his newest case.
Before MacMillian can brace for impact, Lena drags him into a world where monsters aren't just real, they're hiding in plain sight. A deadly threat is lurking in San Francisco's dangerous underbelly, and it's going to take both of them to put it down.
For Lena, it's another day at the office.
For MacMillian, it's the beginning of the end of everything he thinks he knows.
