Journal Entry 1 by Tribefan from Wake Forest, North Carolina USA on Tuesday, March 1, 2016
Welcome to P.U.P.I.—Private, Unaffiliated, Paranormal Investigations

A handpicked team trained to solve crimes the regular police can't touch—crimes of magic.

My name's Bonnie Torres. Recent college grad, magic user and severely unemployed. Until I got a call out of nowhere to interview for a job I hadn't applied for. It smelled fishy, but the brutal truth was I needed the work—so off I went.

Two days later I'm a PUPI—me and Nick, Sharon, Nifty and Pietr. Five twentysomethings, thrown into an entirely new career in forensic magic.

The first job we get is a doozy: proving that the deaths of two Talents were murder, not suicide. Worse, there are high-profile people who want us to close up shop and go away. We're sniffing out things they'd rather keep buried.

Looks as if this job is gonna get interesting. The only problem is, we're making it up as we go along….

This came from a box of books Tribefan sent to me in 2018. They have been patiently waiting to be journaled. This book got here safely :)

I finished this and absolutely loved it. The idea that magic is a current like electricity was such a different look at how it works. You sent me book three, and I'm currently waiting on book 2 to get here to continue on.
