Justine Jones has a secret. A hardcore hypochondriac, she's convinced a blood vessel is about to burst in her brain. Then, out of the blue, a startlingly handsome man named Packard peers into Justine's soul and invites her to join his private crime-fighting team. It's a once-in-a-lifetime deal. With a little of Packard's hands-on training, Justine can weaponize her neurosis, turning it outward on Midcity's worst criminals, and finally get the freedom from fear she's always craved. End of problem.

Or is it? In Midcity, a dashing police chief is fighting a unique breed of outlaw with more than human powers. And while Justine's first missions, including one against a nymphomaniac husband-killer, are thrilling successes, there is more to Packard than meets the eye. Soon, while battling her attraction to two very different men, Justine is plunging deeper into a world of wizardry, eroticism, and cosmic secrets. With Packard's help, Justine has freed herself from her madness--only to discover a reality more frightening than anyone's worst fears.

This book was a departure from the other "urban fantasy" series that have come out in the past few years. Looking for vampires, shape shifters, or supernatural origins/explanations? You have the wrong book my friend.

Justine is a different type of hero, and this world is built to help her do her job. Sometimes conflicted and odd enough to question her previous and new path in life, she actually confronts other characters with important information in a timely fashion. How many times would a plot have been changed if there was just a discussion instead of drawn out suspense..... this is where it's explored.

This is the first books in Crane's DISILLUSIONISTS TRILOGY. What a fresh take on UF: dumping your troubles on the bad guys, thus making you feel a lot better and punishing them for their various sins against humanity. Looking forward to the final book, planned for December, 2011.

This book has me conflicted. It starts out with an interesting idea and then it starts going into romance novel territory which I don't tend to like but pulls back into some sense only to veer into Hollywood improbability.

I'll finish the book I doubt I'll continue the series. Too bad I wanted to really like the whole thing but I can't quite. I'm fascinated enough to finish this one but as I can't quite bring myself to enough suspension of disbelief I'll be leaving it alone.

Guess you could say that I've become disillusioned as a result of actually reading the book.
