MtSnow reviews ‘GhosTV’ (PsyCop Book #6) by Jordan Castillo-Price on Audio, published by JCP Books, LLC, Released 11-24-2015, Narrated by Gomez Pugh, Length: 12 hours, 6 minutes
Why MtSnow reviewed this story: it’s Vic and Jacob. And I love PsyCop, Gomez Pugh, and so far this is my favorite of the series

For the past dozen years, Victor Bayne has solved numerous murders by interrogating witnesses only he can see—dead witnesses. But when his best friend Lisa goes missing from the sunny California campus of PsyTrain, the last thing he wants to find there is her spirit.
Disappearing without a trace in a school full of psychics? That’s some trick. But somehow both Lisa and her roommate have vanished into thin air. A group of fanatics called Five Faith has been sniffing around, and Lisa’s email is compromised.
Time is running out, and with no ghosts to cross-examine, Vic can’t afford to turn down any offers of help. An old enemy can provide an innovative way to track Vic’s missing friend, and he enters into an uneasy alliance—even though its ultimate cost will ensnare him in a debt he may never manage to settle.
Poor Vic, so insecure behind his snark, and self-conscious about his lack of athleticism. He’s constantly comparing himself to others, not quite seeing himself as anything much at all… Like he’s baffled as to what Jacob even sees in him..and then a cool fix to a bad haircut helps a little bit, but still, he just doesn’t see himself as cool as he really is.
We learned a lot more about Vic in this one, like a crack in a hard shell candy to find a chocolaty, gooey center.. He seems to open up and learn a little bit about trust in this story, and we get to see a bit of vulnerability in Jacob that seems to even the scales between these two.
I love the fact that Vic is almost looking forward to time spent with Jacob’s family, even if things are said that may make him second guess himself. I couldn’t believe, he actually enjoyed hanging out with the ‘in-laws’! And the nephew, well, he’s a bit of a stinker.. But the Vic we all met at the beginning of this series wouldn’t have ‘volunteered’ to spend time with regular folks like he does now for Jacob and his family.
And Dreyfuss, well, this story showed us some very interesting ‘inside’ information.. And the whole astral stuff is fascinating..Vic just seems to get more and more powerful, and doesn’t even seem to realize it.
Big smile and redemption at the end! I loved the scenarios that allowed Vic to play hero, and he still doesn’t see it. I’ve got a crush on him. He’s so self-effacing, and looks at the world in such an interesting way. And, all works out in the end whereby something that has been bugging Vic ends up being someone else’s issue, not his!
This was a must read, fantastic journey back into the PsyCop world. Loved it! And Gomez Pugh, he nails it once again with the perfect narration. Highly recommended addition to this series!
