Graham’s latest paranormal novel is suspenseful and dark. The culture and history surrounding San Antonio and the Alamo are described in detail. The transitions between past and present flows seamlessly, and the main characters are interesting and their connection to one another is believable. At times the supernatural events seem overly graphic rather than psychologically frightening.

While in San Antonio for a job interview, U.S. Marshal Kelsey O’Brien, who has the rare ability to “see” the past, is staying at her friend’s inn, a place supposedly haunted by the murder of one woman in the 1800s, and another just a year ago. Like Kelsey, Texas Ranger Logan Raintree is also being interviewed for a new task force that will use his supernatural ability to speak with the dead to find and stop a serial killer. Working together, Logan and Kelsey are able to get clues from the ghosts of long-dead Texans. (MIRA, Apr., 352 pp., $24.95)
