Publisher's Summary

Misaki "Aki" Itou is a psi - a person with mutated DNA granting him psychic abilities. He's also a contracted companion - a whore. It may not be the perfect profession, but having a roof over his head, food to eat, and not being subjected to torture is a dream come true. He is the top companion at the Hidden Gem, and it makes him enough money to buy the prettiest, most sparkly shoes he can find.
Shane McNaughton is an Irishman who survived the Third World War and works as a cop. As head of Missing Persons, he's good at finding people, but after the plague mutated his DNA, he has a hard time letting anyone see the monster inside. He's been paying for Aki's services for two years, both the psi and the sexual kind, but he wants more from the companion.
Shane needs Aki's ability to see into another person's past to track down a serial killer murdering the children of rich and powerful men, but the more they work together, the clearer it becomes that they are linked through a darker past than either of them realizes.

The audio version is much more intense than the print edition version, imho. The narrator does a fantastic job. The story starts off on a lighter note but the action and plot spins up and pulls you in like a whirlpool. The conclusion is satisfying. Recommended.

rediscovered my love for this book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This book is about so many things. It's about a young man who's had a hard life wanting simply to be loved. It's about a past that refuses to to let go, and overcoming what the world thinks of you. It's a book of fun, romance, personal empowerment, all wrapped up in a dystopian shell.

What does Adam McLaughlin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator does a good job of varying voices and adding basic sound effects like laughter. I really enjoyed this narrator.
