Lightning in a Mirror

Berkley. (Fogg Lake, Bk. 3). Jan. 2022. 320p. ISBN 9780593337752. $28. PARANORMAL ROMANCE
Olivia LeClair, co-owner of Lark & LeClair, a psychic private investigation firm with an exclusive clientele, is not having much luck at speed dating. Maybe it’s because she keeps asking her potential dates if they would walk into hell to find her if she disappeared? One answers yes, but he turns out to be Harlan Rancourt, a seemingly burned-out psychic who had disappeared after his father was killed in an explosion. The senior Rancourt used to run the Foundation, a powerful psychic group, and no one knows what Harlan’s intentions are since he dropped out of sight for five years. Harlan’s plan is to find the source of the Bluestone Project, which created powerful psychic weapons like Vortex. Olivia may be the only person capable of stopping it, but the pair won’t know for sure until they find it—and their first stop is Fogg Lake. Krentz ties up her “Fogg Lake” trilogy (The Vanishing; All the Colors of Night) neatly with a bow but leaves streamers dangling, with links to her other psychic books.
VERDICT Longtime fans will recognize names of people Harlan ran into during his five years away; the possibility of future books exploring those connections is exciting. Recommended for public libraries.
