A rare book. An ancient code. A new trilogy that “starts off with promise” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) from the New York Times bestselling master of passion and the paranormal.
Within the pages of very rare books some centuries old lie the secrets of the paranormal. Abby Radwell’s unusual psychic talent has made her an expert in such volumes—and has sometimes taken her into dangerous territory. After a deadly incident in the private library of an obsessive collector, Abby receives a blackmail threat, and rumors swirl that an old alchemical text known as The Keyhas reappeared on the black market.
Convinced that she needs an investigator who can also play bodyguard, she hires Sam Coppersmith, a specialist in paranormal crystals and amber—“hot rocks.” Passion flares immediately between them, but neither entirely trusts the other. When it comes to dealing with a killer who has paranormal abilities, and a blackmailer who will stop at nothing to obtain an ancient alchemical code, no one is safe.

I found this to be the weakest of Ms. Krentz's many books. It felt contrived and predictable, with way too much explanation and way too little chemistry between the main characters. A disappointment.
Loved copper beach
Good from the beginning
This book contains so many elements of Krentz's other books that I felt I had already read it. It was too "talk-y" with conversations explaining events instead of action. The romance seemed contrived with no arc. I hope Krentz moves away soon from her obsession with para-normal crystals that are much too deus ex machina in nature.
