[Review] - Sharp by Alex Hughes

Title: Sharp
Author: Alex Hughes
Series: Mindspace Investigations
Genre: Science Fiction/Urban Fantasy
Release Date: April 2, 2013

I receive this book from Roc, in exchange for an honest review.


As a Level Eight telepath, I am the best police interrogator in the department. But I’m not a cop—I never will be—and my only friend on the force, Homicide Detective Isabella Cherabino, is avoiding me because of a telepathic link I created by accident.

And I might not even be an interrogator for much longer. Our boss says unless I pull out a miracle, I’ll be gone before Christmas. I need this job, damn it. It’s the only thing keeping me sane.

Parts for illegal Tech—the same parts used to bring the world to its knees in the Tech Wars sixty years ago—are being hijacked all over the city. Plus Cherbino’s longtime nemesis, a cop killer, has resurfaced with a vengeance. If I can stay alive long enough, I just might be able to prove my worth, once and for all…

Thoughts: Good read! A great installment to the series. Alex Hughes has a fascinating writing voice. Lead character Adam is just plain fun to read about. Still not a fan of Cherabino's, but she is growing on me. Sharp is a thrilling read. Intense, dark and suspenseful. The world building is pretty amazing. I wouldn't want to live in Adam's world, but it's definitely an interesting place to visit.  I love the mixture of science fiction and crime scene stories.  If you are reading Jim Butcher and Kevin Hearne you'll love Alex Hughes too.

Score: 4 Stars
