Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Beatrice Alexander is no ordinary schoolteacher--she can move objects with her mind, an embarrassing skill she hasn't yet mastered or embraced. After nearly killing her brother by accident, she joins the F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad, the Federal Response to Extra-Sensory and Kindred Supernaturals. This top-secret branch of the FBI combats ghosts, ghouls, and other monsters threatening humanity.

With her teammates--among them a handsome former-detective werewolf and an annoying Don Juan vampire who's dead-set on seducing her--Beatrice investigates her first case. Disgustingly dismembered bodies have turned up, bearing bite marks of the undead. Someone--or something--is raising a horde of hideous, bloodthirsty zombies. Armed with Bette, her trusty machete, Beatrice takes on the master of the flesh-devouring corpses, who's guarding a horrifying secret . . .

Featuring a team of monster hunters with unique paranormal abilities, the F.R.E.A.K.S. Squad Investigation series combines humor, suspense, and supernatural crime-fighting.

Praise "Jennifer Harlow's debut novel had me laughing and gasping from start to finish "--VICTORIA LAURIE, New York Times bestselling author of the Ghost Hunter Mystery series and the Psychic Eye Mystery series

"Wonderful A gritty, dramatic police-procedural with a compelling heroine and a fascinating group of sidekicks. Looking forward to the sequel "--KAREN CHANCE, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Cassandra Palmer series

"The most engaging detectives to face the walking dead since Scully and Mulder. Part urban fantasy, part police procedural, and entirely marvelous, monstrous fun."--LIBRARY JOURNAL

"If Donald Westlake had ever gotten around to writing a paranormal mystery, it would have sounded like this. Harlow's genre debut is funny, creepy and refreshingly brash."--KIRKUS REVIEWS

Review by Library Journal (2011-09-15)

Beatrice Alexander is no ordinary schoolteacher. She's in fact a Carrie-level psychokinetic who has never been able to master her ability to move objects with her mind. Then she's recruited and trained by the Federal Response to Extra-Sensory and Kindred Supernaturals. F.R.E.A.K.S. is a covert FBI division that steps in whenever ghouls, ogres, and other paranormal fiends threaten humanity. For her first case, Beatrice must hunt down a powerful necromancer.

But she has to get past an army of zombies along with her F.R.E.A.K.S. com padres: a super model-gorgeous pyro kinetic, a teenage tele porter, a preppy psychic, a blind medium, a seductive vampire, and one smokin' hot werewolf. Chills and laughter share equal time in Harlow's fresh and funny debut. This supersensory heroine and her paranormal partners are the most engaging detectives to face the walking dead since Scully and Mulder. Part urban fantasy, part police procedural, and entirely marvelous, monstrous fun, this is sure to amass an army of fans, all of whom will be gnashing their teeth in anticipation of the next installment.
