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.
The Krewe of Hunters are back!!! (Insert me screaming with excitement here) Seriously, this is probably my favorite all-time series. I just cannot get enough.
Our story starts with 17 year old Vickie Preston babysitting baby Noah for the Ballantine family. What Vickie doesn’t know is that an escaped prison convict is hiding in the house. Until Dylan Ballantine gets her out of the house. But Dylan is a ghost…
This book will probably rank as one of my favorites from Heather Graham. It got my adrenaline running from the very beginning. Vickie later becomes a bit of a history buff and while Griffin was initially the officer who helped Vickie in the past, now he’s part of the Krewe of Hunters. I really enjoyed them as a couple, even when their feelings for each other wasn’t realized. I think of all couples that I’ve read, I felt like these two are some of most compatible I’ve seen. I know that might sound strange, but I feel like if I met Vickie and Griffin in real life, I’d want to set them up together.
Another facet that I love about all Heather Graham books that really shone in this book was the history. The reason Vickie is so vital to this investigation is that she’s a total history buff. She’s also incredibly intelligent. So as the Undertake is giving out clues, Vickie is busy solving the puzzle.
Heather Graham always delivers and so do the Krewe of Hunters. This series has been one of my all-time favorites for a long time now, and it continues to be. Graham knows what works but always keeps things fresh and keeps readers on their toes the entire time.
