Sleepy Hollow isn’t so sleepy anymore…
One night, New York FBI agent Aiden Mahoney receives a visitor in a dream–an old friend named Richard Highsmith. The very next day he’s sent to Sleepy Hollow because Richard’s gone missing there.
Maureen–Mo–Deauville now lives in the historic town and works with her dog, Rollo, to search for missing people. She’s actually the one to find Richard?or more precisely his head, stuck on a statue of the legendary Headless Horseman.
Mo and Aiden, a new member of the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI’s unit of paranormal investigators, explore both past and present events to figure out who betrayed Richard, who killed him and now wants to kill them, too. As they work together, they discover that they share an unusual trait? The ability to communicate with the dead. They also share an attraction that’s as intense as it is unexpected? If they live long enough to enjoy it!
Betrayed by Heather Graham is another brilliant story by this talented writer. The book drives fast to the gruesome murders. The Krewe of Hunters are sent in and the mystery of who and why behind the deadly headless bodies found around town begins. A town of sleepy hollow is no longer a quiet sleepy town. Someone is insistent on making it into a madhouse of fear, death, and mystery. When one victim is found, the killer already has the next one. So many suspects…and so little time.
This tale is intense. The Krewe of Hunters really have their hands full with this crime investigation. Finding the bodies of victims is hard enough but finding the heads the belong to them is even harder. I loved how spooky this novel was. It definitely had me on the edge of my seat. I can definitely picture a crazy killer doing this during Halloween. It was darker than most of the book in this series.
The romance was felt. It was just delayed a little due to the high demand in finding the victims while alive, if possible and catching the killer. Heather Graham is a queen of suspense. I love books that have tons of action-packed scenes, suspense, and romance in them. Plus, there are hints of humor inside the book. The dog that helps find the bodies and victims was adorable!
