Blurb: Kyle Monroe, his irritating new partner and their fellow freaks at the 77th Precinct must learn to work together to stop a vicious murderer that might not even be human.
Kyle Monroe’s encounter with a strange, gelatinous creature in an alley leaves him scarred and forever changed, revealing odd abilities he wishes he didn’t have and earning him reassignment to a precinct where all the cops have defective paranormal abilities.
Just as he’s starting to adjust to his fellow misfit squad mates, Kyle’s new partner arrives. Tall, physically perfect, reserved and claiming he has no broken psychic talents, Vikash Soren irritates Kyle in every way. But as much as he’d like to hate Vikash, Kyle finds himself oddly drawn to him, their non-abilities meshing in unexpected ways. If they can learn to work together, they might be able to stop the mysterious killer who has been leaving mutilated bodies along the banks of the Schuylkill.

Review: After a strange encounter with a gelatinous creature in an alley Kyle discovers he has abilities and as a result is transferred to the 77th precinct. The 77th precinct consists of others with odd abilities who make up a paranormal team so to speak.
Vikash Soren is one such member of the team who gets partnered with Kyle. They are on the case of finding a mysterious killer who leaves mutilated bodies along the river.
What I enjoyed about this book was how well balanced it was. The drama, mystery, humour flowed smoothly throughout. The details of the mysterious killer were interesting as the story progressed.
The main characters were a hoot to read about, especially when they are working together and getting to know one another.
Fantastic and interesting read.
