110:69 Poltergeist by Kat Richardson

The 2nd book in the Greywalker series.  It's been a couple of months since the events in the previous book that led Harper Blaine to become a Greywalker.  She's become more comfortable with the Grey in that time but when she's recommended by Ben to help with a poltergeist experiment that seems to have gone wrong she's about to get a crash course about all she still doesn't know.  She's hired to find the person faking the phenomenon of a collegiate research project about what a group collective can achieve but it's quickly obvious to her, although the professor won't hear of it, that they've managed to create a true spirit that is under the control of one of them and the person controlling the spirit is neither kind nor forgiving.

Lots of running around for Harper again as she tries to figure out who exactly is controlling the "ghost" which has now been used as a murder weapon.  She continues to call upon Ben and Mara who are dealing with their own problems as their son, Brian, has reached that lovely toddler stage and turned himself into "Rhino-Boy" with a penchant for headbutting and causing immense amount of chaos around him.  She also has to deal with Carlos again but that maybe something she ends up regretting in the future.

I really enjoy these books. Urban fantasy but not the same old werewolves and vampires that are so prevalent in much of the genre these days. The writing is incredibly descriptive which slows me down reading it to make sure I catch it all but even after a few pages I swear I've read way more than that because so much has happened.
