In the seventh book of M.E. Purfield’s urban noir series, Miki Radicci tries to make sense of a string of murders while wading through the lies and myths of her crime-ridden family.
Just as teen psychic and art protégé Miki Radicci is able to get back to work on her art, Federal Marshals knock on her door. No, they are not there for her but for her uncle Tony who recently escaped from prison. Having no idea what is going on, she tries to contact her grandfather who’s been out of town helping a sick friend. But he’s not there. He was never there.

Miki does a little digging in her grandfather’s life and all she can find is a list of doctors deep in psychic research and half of which have been brutally murdered.

With help of her best friends Gray and Miranda, Miki tracks down her family and discovers that they are not what they seem and all the assumptions of her past are wrong.

We are back with Miki in book seven this is one where we get some answers about why her father and mother took her money and left. Though it may not be for the reason that Miki knows. We see how she will get close to the truth but receive heartbreak in return. There seems to be no in between for her. Grayson, man what can we say about him. This character is a hoot with everything that comes out of his mouth. He seems to always be able too bring a smile to Miki and his friends.

I had questions in the previous book about why Miki hasn’t heard from her grandpa, and they were answered. It seems that her grandpa isn’t all what we thought him to be. He has secrets and tricks that Miki is going to be in awe about. I had questions in this book as well but I am hoping that in book 8 there will be answers answered. I really have grown to love Miki and the secondary characters in this story. They are all so well written and the plot goes at an amazing pace.
If you haven’t started this series I say go and start it now.
