Although I grew up reading an eclectic mix of books, testing and sampling everything on the menu, mysteries and paranormal novels were always the ones to make my juices flow into overdrive. I devoured them manically. That fascination has stuck with me forever.
Within the M/M genre, my cravings for top grade whodunits are satisfied by Josh Lanyon’s outstanding prose. In the paranormal department, there’s a whole solid crew, who regularly feed my habit – Astrid Amara, K.J. Charles, Ginn Hale, Lou Harper, Jordan L. Hawk, and Nicole Kimberling amongst others. However, one author would get my vote, if she ever decided to run for the president of the M/M Paranormal Republic.
This author is Jordan Castillo Price.
JCP is a creative institution. Recognised by a cool three-letter acronym, and preceded by the reputation of her awe-inspiring back catalogue, she is also a gifted artist. I know – whoever said life was fair, was a mean bastard, lying through their teeth. A pox on them. And halitosis.
JCP is best known for her excellent series PsyCop. It is, naturally, precisely my jam, as it fuses paranormal with mystery and suspense. Nevertheless, for the purpose of this post I’ve chosen three other books from JCP’s impressive repertoire. In my view, they perfectly illustrate the scope of the imagination involved in her writing and its first-rate quality. While they could not possibly differ more from each other, they are all five star reads for me. I recommend this diverse mini-selection for readers who are yet to take the plunge into JCP’s works, and fans of PsyCop who have never ventured beyond the world of Vic and Jacob.
