Author Spotlight - Rob Thurman

New York Times bestselling author Rob Thurman is best known for the Cal Leandros series, featuring Cal (half-human, half-monster) and his all-bad-ass, half-brother Niko. The seventh book in the series, Doubletake, just hit the shelves a few months ago.  Her other dark urban fantasy series include Trickster and Chimera.

Coming this fall Rob is giving 'mainstream paranormal' a try with the first novel in a new series called All Seeing Eye. Rob's style has always been gritty, and this latest series seems to be following the same style with psychic-for-hire main character, Jackson Lee.

Back cover copy:
Picking up a small pink shoe from the grass forever changed young Jackson Lee’s life. Not only did its presence mean that his sister Tessa was dead—murdered and stuffed in the deep, black water of a narrow well—but the shoe itself told him so.

Tessa’s death triggers an even more horrific family massacre that, combined with this new talent he neither wants nor can handle, throws Jack’s life into a tailspin. The years quickly take him from state homes to the streets to grifting in a seedy carnival, until he finally becomes the cynical All Seeing Eye, psychic-for-hire. At last, Jackson has left his troubled past behind him and found a semblance of peace.

That is, until the government blackmails him. Helping the military contain the aftermath of a bizarre experiment gone violently wrong, everything Jackson knows about himself will change just as suddenly as it did with his little sister’s shoe.
