Odessa Hardwicke's life is derailed when she's forced to turn her gun on her partner, Walt Leppo, a decorated FBI agent who turns suddenly, inexplicably violent while apprehending a rampaging murderer. The shooting, justified by self-defense, shakes the young FBI agent to her core. Devastated, Odessa is placed on desk leave pending a full investigation. But what most troubles Odessa isn't the tragedy itself -- it's the shadowy presence she thought she saw fleeing the deceased agent's body after his death. Questioning her future with the FBI and her sanity, Hardwicke accepts a low-level assignment to clear out the belongings of a retired agent in the New York office. What she finds there will put her on the trail of a mysterious figure named Hugo Blackwood, a man of enormous means who claims to have been alive for centuries, and who is either an unhinged lunatic, or humanity's best and only defense against unspeakable evil.

In this supernatural horror, young FBI agent Odessa investigates crimes that arise from a spirit jumping from person to person, making them violently attack and kill. Expect some gore here! I like the 3 different timelines, including historical ties to civil-rights-era FBI & lynchings, and mystery man John Blackwood's 16th C seances--adding add depth to the whole possession story.

This was an enjoyable romp, the characters were good and the setting was interesting. The story revolved around three characters, set in three different time periods over 500 years or so. To be honest though, there was absolutely nothing about the story that I hadn't heard before, and while I liked it, I'm not sure I'll continue with the next book. The narrator, on the other hand, was terrific, and definitely a saving grace.
