Content descriptions

General Note: Includes extras section.
Summary, etc.: "Teagan Frost is having a hard time keeping it together. Sure, she's got telekinetic powers -- a skill that the government is all too happy to make use of, sending her on secret break-in missions that no ordinary human could carry out. But all she really wants to do is kick back, have a beer, and pretend she's normal for once. But then a body turns up at the site of her last job -- murdered in a way that only someone like Teagan could have pulled off. She's got 24 hours to clear her name - and it's not just her life at stake. If she can't unravel the conspiracy in time, her hometown of Los Angeles will be in the crosshairs of an underground battle that's on the brink of exploding . . ."--Amazon.

    Teagan Frost has psychokinesis, the ability to, well, move sh*t with her mind. Her scientist parents tinkered with her genetic code, so Teagan has had to cope with this unwanted power her entire life. She works for a secret government organization, the China Shop, and they're the only family she has now. When a man they'd been investigating turns up dead—strangled by a length of rebar—Teagan is the prime suspect. Now she has to find the real murderer, someone who presumably also has PK, while eluding the authorities and a host of others who want to punish her. The novel unfolds cinematically with loads of breathtaking action, a perfect candidate for film or television adaptation. Some readers may be put off by the breakneck pace and convoluted plot, but Teagan's cool and snappy voice makes up for any confusion. Jackson Ford is a pseudonym for a best-selling sf novelist, and readers will be guessing the author's true identity. They'll also want more, and luckily for them, the ending expertly sets up a sequel. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
