Product Description

Product Description

A new horror is stalking New Orleans. He is the "Queen of Hearts" killer, removing the hearts of his young male victims. He is savage. He is unstoppable. And the New Orleans Police commissioner has requested - by name- the aid of Dr. Jessica Coran.

But another horror is stalking Jessica. The man known as "The Vampire Killer" has escaped from prison, leaving a trail of blood-drained bodies in his wake. No one knows where he is- but they do know that he's coming for Jessica, the woman that put him behind bars.

Now Jessica faces double jeopardy. And not even a new - and unlikely - partner from the FBI's experimental "psychic" program can protect her from two killers...

(This book is fourth in Robert W. Walker's Instinct series. It was previously published in paperback.)

3.0 out of 5 stars Pure Instinct 15 Jun 2010
By Martha McCormick - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read the first 3 Instinct series books with Jessica Coran, M.E. I have been "riveted" to my seat in all of the books thus far. Pure Instinct didn't seem as good to me because there were so many "side stories" involved as well. The introduction of Dr Kim Desinor was the main story as far as I was concerned. The "Heart" killer in New Orleans was the main story. But as it turned out, Jessica's closure with Matt Mattisak was really the main event. I was a bit confused with this book but I still enjoyed it. The back & forth between Jessica & Kim got me dizzy & I had to go back a few pages at times. I've rated it 3 stars because Richard Walters' Instinct Series is riveting and his character's backgrounds & life experiences makes me want to meet them. This was the only book at this time that I haven't "DEVOURED" in a day. It took me 2-3 days to finish. Bottome line: it is still a good story in all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Walker's Jessica Coran keeps the pages turning! 8 May 1999
By "missterious" - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I don't know what book the last reviewer read, but it definitely could not have been Walker's Pure Instinct. Obviously, he/she had never read any of Walker's previous Coran thrillers. Jessica Coran has been face to face and a victim of a slasher and a blood-letting, blood-saving vampire. How that is "ordinary" is beyond my comprehension, but maybe I haven't been living in the same world as some of the rest of us.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 29 Jan 2012

Frightening? No - beyond frightening. Once you begin, you won't be able to stop. Captivating, thrilling and exciting. But not for bedtime reading.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as riveting as the first 3 in the series 18 April 2011
By K. Carr - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first 3 books in this series I could not put down. This one very confusing with too many story lines competing with one another. I'm just glad I finally finished and can move onto the next one. Also there were many, many typos.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creepy! 31 Mar 2005
By Tania Hutchison - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Two twisted killers for the price of one! Walker has a real knack for creating some pretty sick and twisted killers, and this book is a prime example. The suspense builds up well and the action is well paced. The addition of Dr. Desinor, who has such a different outlook from Jessica, adds an interesting layer to the story. This is one of those 'lock the doors and hide under the covers because this is going to creep you out' kind of book.
