Recent college grad Alex Conner is thrilled to have landed a job as the Hughes County coroner/medical examiner in Pierre, South Dakota. But when her first day on the job ends with a missing corpse, Alex starts to wonder if she would have been better off collecting unemployment...

When the cops made some cryptic comments about being careful with the body they brought in, Alex just thought the boys in blue were messing with her. That is, until something freaky happens that no amount of med school could have prepared her for. By the time Alex gets herself together, the body has disappeared and the other residents of the morgue start talking her ear off.

After working up the courage to report the missing body, Alex is transferred to the mysterious Precinct 13 where she discovers that her new co-workers—including a cute technomage named Jack—are paranormals just like her. Now, Alex is being encouraged to use her ability to speak to the dead to solve crimes. And despite being in the middle of nowhere, Hughes County sure does have a lot of paranormal activity…

Alex, by her own admission, knows Valentine will never care for her the way she cares for him, which left me wondering – if it is in the nature of a character not to be emotional, how am I as a reader supposed to get invested in him?

Both Gothic and Horror fiction contain a morbidity that most Urban Fantasies don’t achieve, and from what I’ve read on several blogs, Urban Fantasy readers usually reject the darker elements normally attributed to both Gothic and Horror novels.
