There is no such thing as bad publicity, except in Midnight, Texas, where the residents like to keep to themselves. Even in a town full of secretive people, Olivia Charity is an enigma. She lives with the vampire Lemuel, but no one knows what she does; they only know that she's beautiful and dangerous.
Psychic Manfred Bernardo finds out just how dangerous when he goes on a working weekend to Dallas and sees Olivia there with a couple who are both found dead the next day. To make matters worse, one of Manfred's regular--and very wealthy--clients dies during a reading.
Manfred returns from Dallas embroiled in scandal and hounded by the press. He turns to Olivia for help; somehow he knows that the mysterious Olivia can get things back to normal. As normal as things get in Midnight...
3/5 stars (liked it)
I love that two character from the Sookie books made an appearance in this book. Although one did not stick around for long and I hope he comes back in the next one. Poor Manfred is caught in the wrong place at the wrong time. I feel like the killer storyline was just wrapped up and forgotten. I would have liked to see more of the other characters in the town featured more. Although it was nice to see more of Olivia and Manfred together and working together. Seems like a few items were left open, so hopefully they are answered in the next one.
