In Too Deep
In Too Deep
by Jayne Ann Krentz
The Looking Glass Trilogy, book one
Scargill Cove is the perfect place for Fallon Jones, confirmed recluse and investigator of the paranormal. It's a hot spot, a convergence point for unusually strong currents of energy, which might explain why the town attracts misfits and drifters like moths to a flame. Now someone else has been drawn to the Cove-Isabella Valdez, on the run from some very dangerous men.
When she starts work as Fallon's assistant, Isabella impresses him by organizing his pathologically chaotic office-and doesn't bat an eye at the psychic aspect of his job. She's a kindred spirit, a sanctuary from a world that considers his talents a form of madness. But after a routine case unearths an antique clock infused with dark energy, Fallon and Isabella are dragged into the secret history of Scargill Cove and forced to fight for their lives, as they unravel a cutthroat conspiracy with roots in the Jones family business . . . and Isabella's family tree.

I was soooo excited to finally get to read Fallon Jones' story! He's been such an intriguing side character in several of the other books in the Arcane Society series that I always wondered how he would find his match.
Isabella was a great match for him, too. I loved that she was connected to a conspiracy theorist, who was in turn connected to Arizona Snow...another intriguing side character. Her unique perspective gave her insight into Fallon's character, allowing her to see past what others' had found off-putting and to connect to the real, loyal, super intelligent Fallon. *sigh*
I love the fact that this is starting another great para-weapon trilogy. I really enjoyed the Dreamlight Trilogy and this Looking Glass Trilogy has a lot of the same qualities. *Squee!*
