Greywalker by Kat Richardson

Greywalker (Greywalker, Book 1)
From the book: Harper Blaine was slogging along as a small-time P.I. when a two-bit perp's savage assault left her dead. For two minutes, to be precise.
 When Harper comes to in the hospital, she begins to feel a bit ...strange. She sees things that can only be described as weird-shapes emerging from a foggy grey mist, snarling teeth, creatures roaring.
But Harper's not crazy. Her "death" has made her a Greywalker-able to move between our world and the mysterious, cross-over zone where things that go bump in the night exist. And her new gift (or curse) is about to drag her into that world of vampires and ghosts, magic and witches, necromancers and sinister artifacts. Whether she likes it or not.

If you love a detective stories and love paranormal stories but just don't know which to pick, I say pick this book. I know that this is book one of the Harper series and it lays the foundation for her adventures as a whole. There is quite a bit of back story as to how she sees into the "grey" and can walk through it. There are also several paranomal cases that she attempts to solve in her old human way while learning to control and use the grey. This keeps the action going, but it also lends to a lot of information squeezed into her and your learning curve. The question in the book eventually becomes if Harper will eventually learn to control the grey or will it eventually control her?

I gave this book 3 stars because I can see the series getting better as it goes along, but this one was just had maybe one case on her docket too many to really keep things moving.
