The main story, "Rabbit Trick," is another worthy entry to the Mindspace Investigations universe. Here we see how good a detective our hero can be *without* the use of his paranormal powers, as well as the ethical code that binds him.

The second story, the tale of a creepy carousel, is the best of the lot. There's not a lot that can faze me, but this tale is a disturbing one. Very well-written.

The last story isn't as good as the other two, but it shows off Hughes' extensive knowledge of history and her ability to extrapolate a story from it.

I recommend this trio of tales heartily.

I love, love, love Alex's Books. I love the world she has created. Love her characters, they are very real, if not always likable. why I give it 4 stars instead of my usual 5 is 1) the price. Two dollars is a lot for a 45 page novella ( But I did pay it). 2) the second story was disturbing and I didn't care for it. I have looked for similar books like the Mindscape series. All I get are demons, fallen angles vampires and well you get my drift. I hate those kinds of stories no originality and I'm not into creepy things. Because of this I buy her books without thinking about it. I have read both Clean and Sharp twice.

“Rabbit Trick” is a science-fiction/pulp noir-story set in the Mindspace Investigations universe, a somewhat Bladerunner-ish near future. It is set before “Clean,” the first novel in this series, so while the main character who recounts this tale remains nameless, any fan of this series knows who he is. Anyway, our somewhat flawed hero is a very powerful telepath, used by the police when they’re stumped on a murder investigation. He’s woken in the middle of the night for a priority case: the murder of a cop. Through the use of his powers, he manages to discover their only lead: a small child - but will they be able to find this kid, who has gone into hiding, before the killer does? And even if they do, will he be able to pull another “rabbit out of the hat” with his telepathic powers so the police can solve this case?

“The Carousel” is a story about a carousel-operator who gets approached by a harried mother and her little girl, who wants to “ride the horsies” – even though the operator tries a lot of tricks, including asking a ridiculous high price, to prevent this from happening. Curious behavior, one would think. But once the choice is made, he tells us as the narrator of this tale, he is powerless to thwart her from riding - and before long, we find out the reason for his actions.

“Inky Black Sea” is a historical/fantasy story, about the captain of the schooner Josephina, who’s on his last voyage, at fifty-five required by king’s decree to return to shore. While being pestered by the high-ranking nobleman de Tera, a known supporter of the dreaded Inquisition, about the presence on board of a Venetian whom de Tera suspects of sorcery, his ship is suddenly becalmed and al at once confronted by a huge sea-monster - and a female one at that.

This is a great teaser to continue the stories surrounding the Mind Space world that Alex has envisioned. I can't wait until the next book comes out in April.

This short story concerns an incident mentioned in the full length novel Clean. Read the novel to find out what happened the hit man from this story.
This is a short story from an excellent series. I give the whole series four stars. It has an interesting group of lead characters, a thought-provoking premise, and enough plot lines to be good for an entertaining evening's reading.
There are two really interesting themes in the series. First is that the entire world of this future is recovering from a major catastrophe, in which some madman crashed the entire internet with a series of viruses that totally destroyed the economy of every country in the world, then left billions dead from starvation, plague, and other causes when computerized homes locked themselves up with the people inside, and food transportation systems collapsed.
The survivors were saved by the Guild, an organization of telepaths, telekinetics, and teleports. The Guild is feared and widely hated by almost everyone.
Our hero, Adam is a telepath thrown out of the guild after a horrible accident caused by his addiction to a drug called satin.
He is now in recovery from the addiction and working as a consultant for a police department in urban Georgia.
This short story is an excellent introduction to the series. The e-book also includes two other short stories not connected to the series. Each one of these is worthy of an Edgar Allen Poe or Lord Dunsany.
All in all, this little book gives you a lot of bang for your bucks.

I’m thoroughly invested in the Mindspace Investigations series. “Rabbit Trick” is a great introduction to the series because it tells you everything you need to know – that the protagonist is a telepath with a drug addiction who is three years clean and works for the Atlanta police. That he has more than a work-appropriate attachment to his grumpy partner, Detective Isabella Cherabino. That his value as an interviewer and investigator comes from both his natural curiosity and what he can “see” and sense with his telepathy. And that he feels his position in the department, and maybe in the world, is tenuous at best.

This novella also includes two of Hughes’s short-SHORT stories, unrelated to the Mindspace series. Hughes really excels at fascinating shorts, so be sure to check them out.

The Mindspace Investigation series is one of my top favorites, so I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
