As a teenager, Vickie Preston survived an attack by a serial killer. That was the first time she saw a ghost. Now the city of Boston is being terrorized—someone is kidnapping women and burying them alive, but cruelly leaving a glimmer of hope for the authorities by sending a clue about their location. Vickie is pulled into the investigation when her name is mentioned in one of the notes. And as a historian, she has the knowledge to help uncover the graves the killer known as the Undertaker is choosing. But she also has another, unique lead: the spirit of one of the victims is appearing to her in dreams.
Special Agent Griffin Price is on the case for the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI’s special unit for paranormal investigators. He feels particularly protective of Vickie, since their shared past is connected to the threat that currently surrounds them. With the killer accelerating his plans, time is running out for more victims hidden around the city. Vickie is becoming closer with Griffin, but she’s getting too close to the danger, and every breath could be her last.
Wow! Talk about a babysitting experience gone wrong…this young woman has had the scare of her life. Somehow, she hasn’t let it traumatize her.

The Krewe of Hunters has a local agent the same man who helped save her life before…and now, fate has them together again. This time, is just as deadly as the past. Vickie knows her history well enough to help the Krewe Hunter FBI agent find the victims before they die. So far, two were found dead and the others have been rescued. The serial killer is determined to up the game and change status quo. Vickie keeps getting herself deeper into danger. Soon, she too can be a victim if she’s not careful.
The romance between the agent and Vickie was hot, instant, and fun. I loved how they tried to tamper it down but then neither of them could hide it any longer. Suspense and the risks were increased with every page. I loved this cat and mouse game. The book was action-packed from the beginning. The ghosts involved were helpful, charming, and made it more entertaining. All in all, I love Heather Graham’s writing. She is a superb thriller suspense writer. Dying Breath is a must read!
