Harper Blaine was your average small-time PI until she died--for two minutes. Now Harper is a Greywalker, treading the thin line between the living world and the paranormal realm. And she's discovering that her new abilities are landing her all sorts of "strange" cases.

After being shot in the back and dying--again--Harper has lost many of her powers. Now, if the Greywalker dies one more time, she won't be coming back. Harper's only respite from the chaos is her work. But while conducting an investigation in the Olympic Peninsula, she sees a ghostly car accident and finds a victim who insists he was murdered, blaming the nearby picturesque community of Sunset Lakes--called "Blood Lake" by locals.

Harper soon learns that beneath the icy waters of the lake hides a terrible power and a host of hellish beings--both of which are held under the thrall of a sinister cabal that will use the darkest of arts to achieve their fiendish ends...

Downpour --- by Kat Richardson. Having read Richardson’s “Seawitch” and “Poltergeist” I was impressed and entertained enough to have a go at another of her novels. Downpour was a the top of the heap. KR employs her usual ingredients: the Grey, lines of energy and her ability to “read” other people by the halo they exude. Kat adds some ingredients not found in there other two novels, most notable of which are the Zombies. Relegated to a minor role of no great import they are there none the less. In my opinion, this novel is not as compelling as the other two. It could be the story line or it could be there were more interruptions to my reading time. For me, the tread of continuity seemed interrupted: in places Downpour left me uncomfortably confused. Not as good as Seawitch? You be the judge. After all, reading a novel is as much about what you bring to it as the author’s contribution.

A fine read. Not as entertaining as the others but it moves the story/character along.
