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. Head of Missing Persons, he’s good at finding people, but after the plague of the Third 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.

I really enjoyed this book. Top read in several weeks. The plot was original,twisting, and moved at a pace that kept the refer engaged. My only negative was that it seemed as if the author tried to fit a little too much in because I got a little confused toward thee end when the back story and current events were being merged. Good job building the hidden gem world and describing a post WW3 world. Would have liked a bit more detail when it came to the cities. I loved all the characters. Great job with their personalities, back story,and growth. Some of the original terms weren't explained till late in the book. Would have enjoyed more if I hadn't head to guess.

Beautiful world building that sucks you in and doesn't let you go. Aki and Shane are compelling apart and together. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
