Book Description

29 Dec 2009 Bishop/Special Crimes Unit Novels

New York Times
bestselling author Kay Hooper delivers once again with this chilling novel in which the Special Crimes Unit sends a Haven operative undercover to catch a charismatic killer who promises his victims heaven in exchange for more than their lives. . .

Young, vulnerable, attractive, Tessa Gray looked like the perfect victim. Which was why Noah Bishop of the FBI’s Special Crimes Unit recruited the novice operative to use as bait for a killer hidden inside the Church of the Everlasting Sin–a fortified mountain compound where at least two women have already been murdered in ways that defy explanation. By entering the cult’s compound, Tessa will expose herself to the dark magnetism of its leader and his fanatically loyal followers. Once she’s inside, no one, not even Bishop or the town’s chief of police, can guarantee she’ll come out alive. And not even Tessa knows if she’s strong enough to resist the lure of a killer who is less than human.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Rather Boring" 9 Dec 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have read quite a few of Kay Hoopers books and mostly have enjoyed them, but
unfortunately not in this case. I found this book just too "talky" there really
was not much of anything going on, I kept waiting for at least some semblence
of action to start, but it just was not happening! Personally I only finished
the book because I thought it might at least near the ending build up to some
sort of face off between Samuel and the team. But in this as well it was all so
underplayed. I came away from this book, thinking thank goodness I have finished
it and now lets read someone else who I know will give me a better story. Sorry
folks for all you KH readers out there, but this book just did nothing for me!

5.0 out of 5 stars worth waiting for 8 Aug 2010
Another great book in the Bishop series, just wish we didn't have to wait between each one. The series is as gripping now as it was in the 'shadows' books

2.0 out of 5 stars Not up to standard 28 Dec 2008
By Rene Nuss - Published on
I always love Kay Hooper novels. However, this wasn't up to her normal standard. There was no connection to Tessa nor the Chief. There was no connection for me the reader to the main characters. I read the book prior to this one and thought it was a much better read. It was very hard for me to get thru and I kept expecting for something to turn. Something to make me not want to put it down and it never happened.

4.0 out of 5 stars Book Two. 23 Dec 2008
By Detra Fitch - Published on
The Church of Everlasting Sin is led by Reverend Adam Deacon Samuel (a.k.a. Father). The church has been in the Grace, North Carolina, area for about ten years. Most members live on the compound, a community in themselves. Few are seen outside the compound. The children do not attend public schools and more than a few of the kids inside the church know that something is not right. The girls have the most to fear.

The Haven organization knows that the church is somehow involved in the area's deaths. Bodies have been found in the river and X-rays showed that virtually every bone in the bodies had been pulverized, yet there were never any marks to indicate how this happened. Undercover agents have already given their lives to ferret out information and even helped a few of the children to escape. All that is really known is that at least one of Father's closest advisors is a strong psychic and no one can get a read on Father because he is like a null field.

Special Agent Noah Bishop of the FBI's Special Crimes Unit recruits Tessa Gray to play the role of a grieving widow and the new owner of property wanted by the church. Tessa, like most of the agents, has a unique gift or two. But if the SCU has to rely on her, an untried psychic agent, then they must be desperate indeed.

**** This is the second novel in the series. If you did not read the first book titled "Blood Dreams", you may want to consider doing so before beginning this story. However, the author has done a good job of updating new readers within the first few chapters. Some characters from the previous book return to play secondary roles in this one. Tessa and the police chief are the main focus this time around though. Be warned that there are some graphic scenes in this story. Readers learn about Father's early childhood. (Not a pretty picture, trust me on that.) Still, the author retains her own outstanding gift of being able to write about paranormal talents and make them seem as if they are business as normal for the characters. I was shocked to realize that as I read the story I was taking everything as common every day stuff instead of fiction. Well done! ****

2.0 out of 5 stars A Disappointment 24 Jan 2009
By E. OMalley - Published on
I have been a fan of Hooper's Bishop series since the beginning, but this was definitely not up to her normal standards. I've never seen her use so much dialogue to explain how much everyone "didn't know." It seemed like every character had to tell some other character that the SCU "didn't know about this" and "didn't know about that." The villain also just annoyed me - I didn't feel he was very threatening, just a bit sickening. I normally get through one of these books in a day - but it took me a week because I was so tired of the exposition.

The little bit of romance involving Tessa and Sawyer didn't even show up until half way through the book...and neither one of them was developed enough to make me care about them. The thing is, I feel Sawyer could've been a really great character but Hooper never explored anything about him! Maybe she's tired of writing about sheriffs? And why did they need Cody for the showdown? There was no explanation of his power that I could see.

All in all, too much dialogue about not much of anything and too many questions left unresolved. I hope the third book is way more satisfying, and that Hollis finally finds someone for herself - maybe (SPOILER) Reese?

3.0 out of 5 stars Could Have Been Better 19 Jan 2009
By D. Tuttle - Published on
I have loved the Bishop series from the very beginning and have enjoyed every book-except this one. It was well written and very entertaining but I feel that it was definitely missing something. There was not a single moment of romance between Tessa and Sawyer. This book seemed to only serve the purpose of setting the story for the last book in the trilogy, which is a great disappointment. It also seemed a little shorter than the rest of the books in the series.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 11 Jan 2009
By K. SLOAN - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Kay Hooper forever and of the Bishop Series since the beginning. This book was a major disappointment. She spent 90% of the book in dry technical descriptions of psychic theory, another 5% referencing every character she's ever written about (it seemed). Even though I have read them all, I was confused and concentrated more on identifying past stories/characters, which was actually easy because of the lack of a real story. It was a short novella with filler and the ending was rushed and anticlimactic. Get it at the library if you must.
