FBI paranormal profiler Lucas Jordan is haunted by the trail of dead bodies left by a vicious serial kidnapper. Carnival psychic Samantha Burke reenters Lucas' life with a warning: The killer knows Lucas and every move is part of a twisted game the two of them are playing.
Sam and Lucas share quite a past. While Lucas joined the FBI's elite Special Crime Unit, Sam continued to work the carnival circuit. Now, however, it will take their combined efforts and special skills to bring the killings to a halt.
Incomparable storyteller Hooper's psychic FBI series is both tremendously innovative and utterly gripping. Her latest has numerous twists and turns and frightening revelations. This is spine-tingling suspense. (Aug., 352 pp., $25.00)
