THE NIGHT IS ALIVE
Graham’s books just keep getting better and better. In this installment of the Krewe of Hunters, the mystery is tangled up with the history of Savannah, Ga., and a band of pirates and the background makes the story that much more enjoyable. The main characters are complicated and stubborn, and their mutual attraction is positively combustible. With the help of the senior members of the Krewe, they solve an intriguing mystery.
New FBI agent Abigail Anderson is called home to Savannah by her beloved grandfather, Gus. When she arrives at her family’s historic tavern, she cannot find him. Abby sees the image of gentleman pirate Blue Anderson and is directed to a tunnel where Gus lies dead. She sends a message to Krewe head Jackson Crowe. P.I. Malachi Gordon has been approached by the Krewe to join. As a test, they send him down to Savannah. As bodies start piling up, can Malachi and Abby stop a madman before it is too late?
