Professional psychic Abigail Cooper is used to dealing with skeptics, but even she's ready to cry "uncle!" when she's forced to work with a true non-believer bent on proving her a fraud.

Business has been frustratingly slow for Abby who needs any new commission she can get, even if it means agreeing to a job with the FBI that puts her at the center of an internal political struggle between two powerful agents, one of whom is the flinty lead investigator and confirmed skeptic Brice Harrison.  Abby's skills are continually tested – along with her patience – as she works to convince Harrison that she's not only the real deal, but can help him locate three college teens who've mysteriously disappeared. Abby's intuition tells her these are no random abductions—and foresees another victim being kidnapped. To get to the bottom of the case, she and Harrison will have to put their differences aside and work together to find the connection between the missing kids. And to do that, Abby will have to win Harrison over, while keeping her psychic eye wide open.

When a painfully stereotypical love/hate relationship between two main characters is given way too many pages to unfold, I roll my eyes but keep going. It's light reading, after all, and I was perfectly happy with this book despite these issues, at least until the heroine walked into a drag bar. This book spent an incredible amount of time insensitively portraying gender nonconforming behavior, primarily concerning the art of drag performance. Laurie portrays drag queens in an unappealing and pathologizing light, even allowing characters to describe it as a 'perversion'. I'm not claiming to be an expert on drag and the culture around it, but even a layperson can tell that Laurie uses outdated, pathologizing terminology to describe drag queens. MAJOR SPOILER: she goes so far as to imply that being discovered as a drag queen is enough reason to resign from office or even commit murder! This portrayal of drag queens is completely unacceptable from a book published only 5 years ago, and ultimately brings what I would have called a 4 star light read down to a one star disappointment that I would rather throw in the trash than force on another reader.

    Love, love, love, and immensely enjoy this series. I’m rapidly catching up with the current books in the series and am going to be so disappointed when I do. I really don’t want this to end. Abby and her PI friend/partner are called in to help the FBI in trying to solve the disappearance of three college students, all from different states, but all the son/daughters of state Congressmen(women).

I have been intrigued by physic ability for a long time and sometimes wish I had some ability, but at other times, I’m glad I don’t, as I’m not sure I could deal with it. Abby can be very irritating at times – she jumps to conclusions, can be very judgmental (even though she hates it when people “judge” her ability), but on the whole is a likeable and empathetic character. I just love that her relationship with Dutch, an FBI agent (who does not have a big part in this book, but is involved), continues to grow. I really like these two characters together. I really hope they continue to grow and stay together. Candice, the PI friend, is a bit of a woman PI cliché, but not over the top and I like her. The friendship, partnership and trust between Abby and Candice is really apparent and seems to be more the focus in this book. While they are a bit out of control at times (breaking and entering; ignoring orders and procedures), they do seem to move the investigation along and get things done. It appears the FBI may be into using Abby’s abilities more as the series continues. I hope it continues to be enjoyable.

    Paradoxical

    What is with these books and people being unexpectedly rich? It's like some sort of wishful thought the author has. I also sigh over how in your face Abby is about her psychic ability--every skeptic she meets (who continues to not believe) is automatically some sort of jerk, and while I wouldn't ordinarily care, I would greatly prefer it if the author was at least a bit subtle about it. As it is, it's like some sort of vendetta against all of the nonbelievers in the world. And, you know, for som What is with these books and people being unexpectedly rich?

"Nervous little nerd" comes to mind. As for the plot of the book--eh. It was all right. The ending was rather predictable (at least to me, anyway). The little thing with Candice and Harrison at the end was completely obvious and made me roll my eyes. A lot. It just felt very unnecessary and off putting. In the end, the mystery holds my most attention and everything else is sort of bland or annoys me. This book is about 2.5 stars.

    Many changes after this book. Catherine and Abby travel to assist the FBI, and keep traveling back and forth. There's a somewhat funny situation with a haunted location at the end. Apparently the economy has crashed in her area, so business has slowed down for both of them. Some are leaving time, including well known characters I adore - it looks like Milo is moving.

He has not been in the rest of the books as much but has always been a favorite, so its depressing he may not be a regular any longer, we shall see. Abby has calmed down on her moodiness the past two books and is more likable. For the first time ever, I think this book is completely devoid of Cat, her fun sister. Gaston is an enjoyable character, but Abby's gift sometimes seems weaker or inconsistent based on book and plot. This is a doozy of a mystery and layered.

    I got burned out on this series years ago, but enjoyed this one. Abby and Candice are great friends and investigation partners. Abby has the psychic skills while Candice has PI skills and enough confidence for 3 people. When the FBI asks for Abby's help to find 3 missing teens, the agent in charge doesn't believe in psychics and requires Abby to pass some tests. The mystery is good. Characters interesting, although Dutch is barely in this. I guess it is time to get back into this series as it loo I got burned out on this series years ago, but enjoyed this one.

    I have enjoyed this series immensely. I am not a fan on scifi, ghosts, vampires or werewolves. I do however like some of the psychics.

I had the first seven of her books and was just reading one after the other when I realized she was going to have another coming out this year. I stopped reading the series and put a advance order on the newest one so I could get it as soon as it was published. When I received the 9th one I picked up where I left off on this series. Now, I've discovered a new Psychic Eye Mystery, Lethal Outlook, is due to come out in 2012, and it's still to early to preorder it! Like I mentioned, Ms. Laurie can't write these books fast enough!

When she finds nothing in the house Brice had picked to trick her, Abby instead finds the dead body of an agent in an adjacent house which nearly makes Harrison’s head explode with rage. The mystery was this was great. It was complex and Abby had to use more than her intuition to solve it. It was a real fun ride and I look forward to the next book I have in my collection.

    In this book, Abby and her PI friend,Candice, are asked by the FBI to help in the investigation of three missing college kids. Besides having very little in way of clues, Abby is also stuck with a FBI agent who thinks she is a fraud. Through the course of the case, Abby slowly begins to make progress in convincing the agent she knows what she knows. The book was a quick easy read.

    I think I have an addiction to this Psychic Eye series; can't leave them alone. Admittedly, the quality of the books - both writing and development - is something varied, but this is one of the super ones. Fairly early in the series, Abby and Candace assist a reluctant F.B.I. agent solve the disappearance of three college students, each from a different campus and, apparently, unacquainted with each other. The ending is a big surprise and maybe you, like myself, will be desperate to reach it. I think I have an addiction to this Psychic Eye series; can't leave them alone.

In this story, Abby and her partner Candice team up with the FBI to find 3 missing teenagers. (mentioned previously in the last book) As always, Abby uses her skill and wit to outsmart and catch the killer. Im highly anticipating the next in series, where the gang heads out and moves to Austin TX! Its an awesome series!

The FBI is stumped by a case: three teenagers, children of prominent congress men and women in their respective states, have disappeared over the last few months. The teens have no apparent connection but Abby sees a thread. Hampered in her work by a powerful agent in charge who is more than a skeptic, Abby's skills are sorely tested. I can see that this book is pivotal for a change in the series starting with the next book. I can't wait!

Finally, Abby and Candice are both disgusted with him and decide they don't care to be involved. However, during the last test Abby locates the scene of a recent murder-suicide no one had reported and Brice's supervisor steps in to welcome Abby to the team. The FBI are convinced the missing teens didn't know each other, but Abby is just as convinced they did. And unfortunately, she believes two of the teens are already dead. A great continuation of the story and an ending that gives new possibilities for future stories.

    This is the lowest rating I imagine I will ever give Victoria Laurie. This was the first book I’d read of hers.

It’s an action packed book with a good bit of mystery that can be solved with the clues given if you’re paying attention which I really appreciate. The thing that saved this series since I started with what I consider the one bad egg was the character ended the book moving to Austin,TX. I started this book in Memphis, TN and finished it in my apartment in Austin, TX. It seemed like a sign and there’s a whole lot of five star reviews after this one.

    I usually only review books I’ve received in giveaways and the like, but felt that I had to give reason to my one-star rating. I have been enjoying this series. The books are quick, easy reads, and overall all entertaining. But I am so disappointed and disheartened by the insensitive depictions of gender non-conforming behavior, specifically that of drag. And despite the rest of the book being a relatively good read, those last few chapters turned me off completely, resulting in a one-star rating.

    Winning over the FBI Sad about Michigan being a financial bust but this book was the transition from Michigan to Texas. I had read books before and after so this one filled in the story line. Some missing kids and a stalled investigation until Butch and Sundance breath some life into it.

    It's a good thing Abby has her crew because she tends to be a little slow on the uptake. I figured this out long before she did and I don't have any psychic help. It's still a good story and I liked that she teamed up with Candice for this one. Good thing Candice is much smarter than she is.

    This was just another great book in the series... All the characters were interesting and well developed. I loved the story and am happy there are more books to read in this awesome series. The writing style of Victoria Laurie is just superb, it flows and is easy to follow.

    This was one of the best of the series. I didn't really love the last two books and was pleasantly surprised by this one. Fast paced and funny! I loved the focus on the case and that it was FBI involved without being unrealistic. This was one of the best of the series.

    Great story One of the things I love about this main character is the quick laugh I do at random times. I will just be reading along and she comments something that makes me snort. Now on to the next book. Come on down book 8.

    This one has Abby and Candice helping the FBI solve the disappearance of three teens. Abby has to deal with some agents not believing in her abilities and not taking her seriously. She has Candice and Dutch as her back up though.

    An adventure with lots of travel between states and across Michigan. I love that it includes beautiful places in Michigan. The characters keep me coming back too. This was super sad as to the killer and why he killed. Heartbreaking all the way around.
