From the dark depths of Hollywood’s past
The crime scene is horrific: the corpse of a young actress, drained of blood and cut in two. LAPD Detective Sophie Manning’s new case is high-profile and difficult—there’s no evidence to work with. And it’s a disturbing echo of the infamous Black Dahlia killing. Sophie is burning the candle at both ends, desperate to catch the murderer before he strikes again, when she starts to experience inexplicable visits…from ghosts.
Bruce McFadden has a particular talent that can help Sophie—he can speak with the dead. As a consultant for the FBI’s paranormal team, the Krewe of Hunters, he’s been tasked with Sophie’s case and they’re forced to partner up. But Sophie doesn’t want his help, and she doesn’t want to share his peculiar skill. And she certainly isn’t ready for love, despite Bruce’s attentions.
As the killer taunts the police, Sophie and Bruce will discover that the threat is closer to home than they’d ever realized. Working side by side is the only way they’ll stop this deadly sequel.
Pale as Death by Heather Graham is the 25th novel in this dark suspenseful series. The Krewe of Hunters is a fascinating paranormal romantic suspense series. One that I have loved since the 1st novel. There is plenty of intrigue, deadly situations, risks, humor, and romance inside every book. Especially, inside this one. This particular story is just as gruesome as the previous books. Bodies start popping up and they are done exactly like the Black Dahlia crime investigation.
The killer or killers never were caught. Now, someone is imitating the crime scenes down to the last detail. The current protagonists, along with the Krewe of Hunters (special FBI team) and their ghost friends will be in for a long a dangerous investigation. They all fear that it’s someone within their inner circle. But who? The suspicions grow as I follow along. So many possible suspects and yet time is running out…
Heather Graham catches my attention with her prefect dialogue, detailed yet realistic crime scenes, and fun banters between the characters. I enjoy a book that hooks me right in from the beginning to last page. Action-packed and well-developed, this is a must read for all fans of crime fiction.
