Alaska—the final frontier?
When Clara Avery, an entertainer working on the Fate, an Alaskan cruise ship, goes to nearby Bear Island, she comes across a scene of bloody mayhem. She also comes across Thor Erikson, who will soon be a member of the FBI’s elite paranormal unit, the Krewe of Hunters.
Thor’s been sent from the Alaska field office to investigate several grotesque killings, with the dead posed to resemble the victims of notorious murderers. The prime suspect is a serial killer Thor once put behind bars. The man escaped from a prison in the Midwest, and all the evidence says he was headed to Alaska…
Thor and Clara share an unusual skill: the ability to communicate with the dead. Their growing love—and their contact with the ghosts of the victims—brings them together to solve the case…and prevent a deadly fate of their own!
Deadly Fate by Heather Graham was another exciting liftoff in this series. As usual there were several suspects, ghosts, and plenty of action. The suspense hung onto every page. So many characters made it difficult to narrow down the suspect list. I was on edge until the ending when all was revealed to me. The protagonists were great. Thor is so much like the movie version we all know about. Big, tall, good looking and sometimes he can be scary. Thor hit it off wrong in the beginning with Clara. But as things spiral out of control, they become closer. Avery is an actor who is pleasant enough to like. Thor is the big FBI Alaskan agent working with the Krewe. Jackson Crowe, head of the FBI Krewe of Hunters is also featured in this book. He knows Clara. It was funny how Jackson told Thor Clara was not a suspect and yet Thor was like: I have to interview everyone involved with this investigation. At the same time, Thor couldn’t stop thinking about Clara or how she knew Jackson. Overall, Heather Graham worked her magic again. I fell in love with this book.
