I am an avid Kay Hooper fan- because she is always able to keep me guessing until the very end...and she didn't disappoint me this time.
In this book, Lucas Jordan of the Special Crimes Unit is called in to deal with a serial kidnapper, who puts his victims in hazardous contraptions that will kill them eventually if they are not found in time...and so far- no one has gotten out alive.
In true Hooper style this book is fast paced, and intriguing. And as always there is a paranormal thread that ties the story together. The serial kidnapper is playing a game of life and death with Jordan, and so far the kidnapper is winning. Lucas Jordan of the SCU is experiencing a paranormal block that is only allowing him reach the kidnapped victims to late. The only question is can Luke overcome the block before someone else is killed.
Hooper incorporates the paranormal, romance, and lots of suspense, that kept me turning the pages! Her characters are not run of the mill heros, but real people with real problems and issues- which makes them interesting.
This was my 2nd Kay Hooper book. First one I read of her was Stealing Shadows. Wasn't sure this one could keep me as interested, but I was found it hard to put this book down. After being an avid Sandra Brown and Jonathan Kellerman reader, Kay Hooper did not disappoint me by combining Kellerman's suspsense and intrigue with Sandra Brown's love stories and mystery.
A Noah Bishop Special Crimes Unit novel. Scary good. I read it very quickly. This is the first book I have read by this author - I am so impressed I will look for her other books.
Kay Hooper has become one of my new favorite authors! This book, and all of hers I've read so far and very tightly, excitingly, well written. The stories have just enough twists and turns without being confusing. The characters are multi-layered and believable. The romance is well done and actually part of the plot, not just "romance breaks" as in a lot of novels.
A terrific story that kept me on the edge of my seat - guessing all the way. First Kay Hooper story I'd read and I just ordered 3 more ;D
