Emerging from the bayou like an apparition, Donegal Plantation is known for its unsurpassed dining, captivating atmosphere, haunting legends and now a corpse swinging from the marble angel that marks its cemetery’s most majestic vault. A corpse discovered in nearly the same situation as that of Marshall Donegal, the patriarch killed in a skirmish just before the Civil War.
Desperate for help traditional criminologists could never provide, plantation heiress Ashley Donegal turns to an elite team of paranormal investigators who blend hard forensics with rare & often inexplicable intuition. Among the Krewe of Hunters is an old flame, Jake Mallory, a gifted musician with talent stretching far beyond the realm of the physical, and a few dark ghosts of his own.
The evil the team unveils has the power to shake the plantation to its very core. Jake and Ashley are forced to risk everything to unravel secrets that will not stay buried even in death.
Heart of Evil by Heather Graham is one of the best thrillers I have read. Inside, I got to meet Ashley. Ashley knows something is happening with her family place. The Krewe Hunters are called in and they send in Jake. Jake is a musician with a special talent, ghost hearing. Jake is a family friend and something more. He and Ashley are soon pulled into a serial killer’s cat and mouse game. Everyone is a suspect, but who has the most to gain? That question haunted me as I dug into the book. The suspense was high and the entertainment was perfect. Action-packed with paranormal activity and deadly scenes, I was once again, hooked. Heather Graham has a talent for writing the best suspense novels with an edge-of-your-seat vibe.
