1800s. San Antonio, Texas: In room 207 at the Longhorn Saloon, in the long shadow of the Alamo itself, a woman renowned for her beauty was brutally murdered. Her killer was never found.
One year ago: In that same historic room, another woman vanished without a trace. Her blood was everywhere…but her body was never recovered.
Now: In the last month, San Antonio has become a dumping ground for battered bodies.
All young women, many of them long missing, almost all forgotten. Until now.
Texas Ranger Logan Raintree cannot sit by and let his city’s most vulnerable citizens be slain. So when he is approached to lead a brand-new group of elite paranormal investigators working the case, he has no choice but to accept the challenge. And with it, his powerful ability to commune with the dead.
Among Logan’s new team is Kelsey O’Brien, a U.S. marshal known for her razor-sharp intuition and a toughness that belies her delicate exterior. Kelsey has been waiting all her life to work with someone who can understand her ability to “see” the past unfolding in the present. Now she has her chance.
Together, Kelsey and Logan follow their instincts to the Alamo and to the newly reopened Longhorn, which once tempted heroes with drink, cards and women. If the spirits of those long-dead Texans are really appearing to the victims before their deaths, only Kelsey and Logan have the skills to find out why.
And if something more earthly is menacing the city’s oldest, darkest corners, only they can stop it—before more innocent women join the company of San Antonio’s restless ghosts….
The Unseen by Heather Graham is the fifth Krewe Hunter novel. It’s a romantic suspense thriller combined with paranormal themes. The ghosts of victims and other long time ghosts who are still earth bound are in this read. They help by leading the FBI Krewe Hunter team to unearthing the killers. I love that I could not guess who the killers were. I know the saying is the closer one is to the victims that’s who the killer will be. However, in this case it was who was closer to the agent than the victims. The victims had different ways of communicating to the investigators. Spooky but entertaining at the same time, Heather Graham knows how to keep my attention focused on her characters. This novel is driven forward not only by the characters and dialogue but also by the action-packed scenes. The Unseen is mysterious more than it was edgy. Overall, it still is a great read.
