The dead of night
The Old West town of Lily, Arizona, is home to the Gilded Lily, a former theater and bawdy house. These days, it offers theatrical productions geared to tourists, but the recent discovery of a skull, a real skull, among the props and costumes shakes everyone up.
So, who do you call? The Krewe of Hunters, a special FBI unit of paranormal investigators. In this case, it’s agent Jane Everett. Jane’s also a talented artist who creates images of the dead as they once were. But the Krewe always works with local law enforcement, and here that means Sloan Trent, former Houston cop and now sheriff. His great-great-grandmother was an actress at the Gilded Lily and she’s not resting in peace.
Then more remains appear in the nearby desert. As they search for answers, using all the skills at their disposal, Jane and Sloan find themselves falling into danger and into love.
The Night Is Watching by Heather Graham is another suspense thriller filled with mystery. In this one, I am sent to a theater where there is more than just fowl play happening. Murder…both from the past and present are connected and it’s up to the Krewe Hunters to catch the killer before more innocent lives are gone. The theater house came alive on the pages. I felt like I was in it with all the characters. Both the small and big characters had a role in making this a fun journey. I was in suspense as the dead are found, and ghosts interact with law enforcement officials. Someone is serial killer but who? The scene of the crime is a theater and so many possibilities and twists were easily created. Heather Graham still brought out the humor and romance despite the deadly suspense hanging onto the pages. I was thrilled.
