In a world in which psychic powers are mainstream and used for evil as well as good, there exists an agency, After Moonrise, to handle psychic crimes. Two tales by prime paranormal romance writers tell the story of a two agency cases. In Cast’s “Possessed,” psychic detective Kent Raef loses his ability to read negative emotions just as Lauren Wilcox needs his help finding the murderer of her twin sister, Aubrey. In Showalter’s “Haunted,” Lana, one of the company’s head mediums, insists that her best friend, Harper, enlist the help of detective Levi Reid to investigate why Harper is having extended blackouts and painting images of what seems to be a memory of gruesome death. Cast makes her more controversial case compelling, though the relationships in it aren’t equally balanced, which may leave some readers unsettled by how the love story unfolds. There are few surprises in Showalter’s entry, but its macabre twist is nonetheless chilling. Levi and Harper are two unconventional peas in a pod, and their lighter moments are needed to balance the darker ones. --Nina C. Davis
