In No Human Involved, Kelley Armstrong lets us learn a little more about Jaime Vargas, necromancer. Jamie is finally getting a shot at a TV show of her own. She's one of three spiritualists placed together in a survivor-type television extravaganza where during the finale they will raise the ghost of Marilyn Monroe. While the house in which they're living and filming, has ghosts, what worries Jamie are the fragmented ghosts in the garden, who are able to interact with the physical world. They don't play nice and they want Jaime's help. From official release/information:
Book Description: Jaime, who knows a thing or two about showbiz, is on a television shoot in Los Angeles when weird things start to happen. As a woman whose special talent is raising the dead, her threshold for weirdness is pretty high: she's used to not only seeing dead people but hearing them speak to her in very emphatic terms. But for the first time in her life – as invisible hands brush her skin, unintelligible fragments of words are whispered into her ears, and beings move just at the corner of her eye–she knows what humans mean when they talk about being haunted.
She is determined to get to the bottom of these manifestations, but as she sets out to solve the mystery she has no idea how scary her investigation will get, or to what depths ordinary humans will sink in their attempts to gain supernatural powers. As she digs into the dark underside of Los Angeles, she'll need as much Otherworld help as she can get in order to survive, calling on her personal angel, Eve, and Hope, the well-meaning chaos demon. Jeremy, the alpha werewolf, is also by her side offering protection. And, Jaime hopes, maybe a little more than that.
