It always amazes me when an author can create a large body of work.  Heather Graham has managed to create a compelling series of books in the Krewe of Hunters.  One of the ways that she has managed to keep the series interesting and relevant is by constantly mixing up the main characters as new agents join the unit.  All the other main characters and their romantic partners are still a part of the story.  And there are times when the original krewe gets involved as well as the newer group of agents.

This story follows up on the heels of the last book.  Vicki Preston and Griffin Pryce are preparing for the move to Virginia when Alex Maple, who has become a friend after helping them with the undertaker murders is brutally attacked.  As they investigate the crime, it becomes more and more bizarre, involving both history and satanism.  2 more krewe members, Devin and Rocky have come to help as they were traveling to Salem anyway.  The case becomes quite involved and Alex is kidnapped.

This was a fun read and a great addition to the Krewe of Hunters series!

I look forward to discussing all of this with fellow fans at my site and at the Facebook page at

Krewe of Hunters

August 1, 2017

The witches, they are real… A series of bizarre assaults is mystifying Boston police: an unknown attacker is viciously beating random strangers and leaving a note quoting an old warning about witchcraft. History professor Alex Maple was one of the victims, and now he's gone missing. Vickie Preston is certain that someone has taken her friend for malicious purposes. She's having blood-drenched visions that seem to be staining her waking life, and the escalating attacks suggest that a dangerous cult is at work behind the scenes—a cult so powerful that its members would rather die than be apprehended. Vickie is grateful to have Special Agent Griffin Pryce and the FBI's elite Krewe of Hunters on her side. She and Griffin are finding their way in an increasingly passionate relationship, and Griffin is desperately trying to keep her safe and the two of them sane amid the disturbing investigation. The search for Alex will take them deep into the wilderness of Massachusetts on the trail of a serial killer, and it will take everything they have to survive the ancient evil that awakens and threatens not just the man they're striving to save but their very souls.
