New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper takes readers on a terrifying manhunt for a serial killer even the Special Crimes Unit may not be able to stop.
Dani Justice knows all about monsters. They haunt her dreams—and her life. But she never expected to find herself on the trail of a real flesh-and-blood predator so cunning that he’s eluded the best law enforcement could send against him; and so deadly that he doesn’t hesitate to kill even a senator’s daughter. Or a cop. Dani doesn’t want to hunt this killer, but she doesn’t have a choice. She alone commands a weapon powerful enough to stop him. And she knows something even Bishop of the FBI’s Special Crimes Unit doesn’t know. Dani knows how the hunt ends. It ends in fire. And blood. And death. What she doesn’t know is who will survive.
In the plodding first of a new psychic crime fighter trilogy from bestseller Hooper (Sleeping with Fear), Noah Bishop of the FBI's Special Crimes Unit is now supervising an all-female team of civilian contractors known as Haven. Together, they track a serial killer who has moved his maniacal atrocities from Boston to a small town outside Atlanta, where he continues to kidnap, torture and kill women. Psychic Dani Justice, who can often predict the future through her dreams, becomes obsessed with the case. The investigation of the crimes gets lost amid lots of psychic babble by members of Haven, hand-wringing by the local police, and frequent snapshots of the killer with his victims. An abrupt ending doesn't deliver on any of the trauma and drama that Justice's dreams have predicted, though presumably readers will get satisfaction on that score in the next entry in the series.
