BLURB from Goodreads
 In Armstrong's first six novels, Elena, Paige and Eve have had their way with us. Now get ready for Jaime Vegas, the luscious, lovelorn and haunted necromancer. . . 
Jaime, who knows a thing or two about showbiz, is on a television shoot in Los Angeles when weird things start to happen. As a woman whose special talent is raising the dead, her threshold for weirdness is pretty high: she's used to not only seeing dead people but hearing them speak to her in very emphatic terms. But for the first time in her life - as invisible hands brush her skin, unintelligible fragments of words are whispered into her ears, and beings move just at the corner of her eye-she knows what humans mean when they talk about being haunted. 
She is determined to get to the bottom of these manifestations, but as she sets out to solve the mystery she has no idea how scary her investigation will get, or to what depths ordinary humans will sink in their attempts to gain supernatural powers. As she digs into the dark underside of Los Angeles, she'll need as much Otherworld help as she can get in order to survive, calling on her personal angel, Eve, and Hope, the well-meaning chaos demon. Jeremy, the alpha werewolf, is also by her side offering protection. And, Jaime hopes, maybe a little more than that. 

No Humans Involved by Kelley Armstrong is book number seven in the series.
In this book three TV mediums gather in a house to speak to the ghost of Marilyn Monroe. It is Jaime Vegas' chance at the big time. Jaime is the real thing she can communicate the dead whereas the other two "mediums" are all show and no substance. Jaime doesn't wish to cause trouble with her fellow mediums so she tries to play down her abilities. Jaime senses something lurking in the garden, there are some trapped spirits. These trapped spirits literally haunt Jaime for her help.When everything culminates into a showdown, Jaime has to use the darkest of her powers to defeat a shocking enemy.
This book really kept me on the edge of my seat, wondering Who? and What? was lurking in the garden. The character of Jaime is lovely, she's a really good, kind person, she doesn't even want to unmask her fraudulent fellow mediums. A bit of a nail bitter. Would love to have more of Jaime in the following books.
