Publisher's Summary

Nobody does it better....
Dr. Mo O'Brien is an intelligence agent at the top-secret government agency known as the Laundry. When occult powers threaten the realm, they'll be there to clean up the mess and deal with the witnesses. But the Laundry is recovering from a devastating attack, and when average citizens all over the country start to develop supernatural powers, the police are called in to help.
Mo is appointed as official police liaison, but in between dealing with police bureaucracy, superpowered members of the public and disgruntled politicians, Mo discovers to her horror that she can no longer rely on her marriage, nor on the weapon that has been at her side for eight years of undercover work: the possessed violin known as Lecter.
If this wasn't bad enough, a mysterious figure known as Dr. Freudstein is committing heists and sending increasingly threatening messages to the police. Who is Freudstein, and what is he planning?

Good but not the best in series

Story good but a few too many long descriptions of police/management procedures. Narrator good when she stuck to her own accent. Other accents ranged from middling to so awful it was painful to listen to!
