Book Review: Sharp by Alex Hughes

Sharp (Mindspace Investigation #2)

As a Level Eight telepath, I am the best police interrogator in the department. But I’m not a cop—I never will be—and my only friend on the force, Homicide Detective Isabella Cherabino, is avoiding me because of a telepathic link I created by accident.

And I might not even be an interrogator for much longer. Our boss says unless I pull out a miracle, I’ll be gone before Christmas. I need this job, damn it. It’s the only thing keeping me sane.

Parts for illegal Tech—the same parts used to bring the world to its knees in the Tech Wars sixty years ago—are being hijacked all over the city. Plus Cherbino's longtime nemesis, a cop killer, has resurfaced with a vengeance. If I can stay alive long enough, I just might be able to prove my worth, once and for all.

As usual, I've found another good author to read! Sharp, by Alex Hughes, was a futuristic sci-fi mystery that was well-written and fairly easy to get into. Since this was the second novel in "A Mindspace Investigations Novel" series, I did find myself a little behind the times when I started reading. I will want to read Clean by Alex Hughes, as it would explain some of the gaps and goings on with Adam, the main character, since this would have been the first novel.

Sharp had a lot of action and a great story line, but almost had me feeling sorry for Adam, with so many personal problems from his past. It's hard to be a Level 8 Telepath, and also made me not want to be around Telepaths, (if I'm a bad guy!)

The ending was a little strange but fitting, and definitely leaves room for more Mindspace Investigations Novels.

I would recommend Sharp, by Alex Hughes, to any sci-fi or mystery fan, as it's not too far fetched in the sci-fi world, and is a good read for the mystery readers. Well done!!

Happy Reading!

About the author:
Alex Hughes was born in Savannah, GA and moved to the south Atlanta area when she was eight years old. Shortly thereafter, her grandfather handed her a copy of Anne McCaffrey’s Dragonrider series, and a lifelong obsession with scifi was born.Alex’s work is complex, dark, adventurous, and a little funny, with a emphasis on great characters and interesting worlds. She gets her inspiration from history (she majored with a European history focus in college), family members, and headlines, as well as whatever book she has in her hand. Lately she’s been reading neuroscience books; the brain’s a cool, cool place and the mind even more so.
Alex loves swing dancing, tetris, music of all kinds, and has been known to get into long conversations with total strangers at restaurants about the Food Network, much to the embarrassment of her sister. She can also balance a spoon on her nose while crossing her eyes, and talk for hours about absolutely nothing.
