Great read! Keeps you turning the pages until you reach the end. Would read everything by this author.
FBI Agent Riley Crane wakes up covered with blood and with no memory of the last three weeks. This isn't a good scenario for an agent undercover in a small town looking into occult activities. Theres a totally sexy, confident, and successful man in the picture, but she can't even remember him. She has to worry every minute if she is putting her trust in the right place. All the while her normally acute psychic abilities are "shut down" just as much as her memory is.
This one kept me guessing all the way to the end.
I, for one, love the Bishop/FBI SCU stories, and thought this book was an excellent addition to the series.
Riley Crane wakes up in bed at her rental cottage in Opal Island, only to realize she's covered in dried blood and has no memories of the last three weeks. Apparently, she was on the island to investigate supposed black magic/occult activities while claiming she was on vacation--but she has no recollection of that fact. She also doesn't remember that she's become romantically involved with Ash Prescott, Hazard County District Attorney.
Bishop and the rest of his agents are spread thinly across the United States working on their own investigations, so Riley is on her own, without a partner or any back-up. As situations turn deadly and a body is found tortured and mutilated in a small woods, Riley knows that she must uncover what has been happening to her the last three weeks, and uncover it quickly.
As her mind plays tricks on her, even leading to blackouts where she loses hours of her day (besides the very important memories she's already lost), Riley knows that something evil is happening on Opal Island. It is up to her, and her blind trust in Ash, to figure out what that evil is, and stop it before it ends up killing her.
SLEEPING WITH FEAR is an excellent addition to the SCU series, and I, for one, am glad I picked up a copy of the book. I can't wait to see what Ms. Hooper has in store for Bishop and his team next.
