Synopsis

Thirteen… 
As far as numbers go, it isn’t a great one. Hell, it’s not even a good one and Vincent Graves is going to find out just how unlucky of a number it can be. 
Because someone, or something, is killing people in the Empire state, and whatever it is, it gives people everything they ever desired and more. And it’s the more that’s the problem! 
Well…it’s one of the problems. 
Vincent’s investigation also seems to have drawn the attention of a relentless FBI agent and then there’s the little bit where he has only thirteen hours to solve the case, or he dies. 
Talk about your literal deadlines… 
…No pressure. 
By the end of this case Vincent will come to understand the meaning of an age old proverb: Be careful what you wish for – because you just might get it!

***Misty #NerdGirlShadow’s  Review***
The idea behind this story was fantastic and original. Despite editing issues, I immediately became entrenched in the story. The main character, Vincent Graves, is a soul. He jumps from body to body in an effort to solve mysteries, starting with who he is at the time.
In the cases he is assigned, a paranormal creature has been involved, pulling Vincent, another paranormal creatures of sorts, in as the unofficial detective. He’s given an amount of time to finish the job when it is burned into his skin by a managing “case worker” of sorts, Church. All the reasoning behind this is revealed at the proper time and in an interesting way. The book is fast-paced and keeps your interest.
The character development was ample and I enjoyed the way the story played out. I will, more than likely, read the sequel. The author is a great storyteller and is definitely onto something with this idea. The grammatical errors were a bit distracting, but if you try to ignore that and read it for content, it’s very entertaining.
I also must add that Virdi has a knack for witty and hilarious dialogue. It was key in the character development and kept me wondering what they would say next. I’m a big fan of sarcasm, and the author didn’t fall short on snarky comments.
