I love Miss Hooper. I have all of her books. But this is third in a delightful, light hearted romance series that she wrote about thirty years ago. It is very different from her current books and I don't know about other readers but I am getting awfully tired of paying top dollar for books I already have on my shelves.
Kay Hooper does a masterful job of building believable characters and page-turning suspense. The story flows smoothly and steadily builds towards a chilling and satisfying conclusion.
Although part of a 'thrill-ogy', Stealing Shadows stands perfectly as an individual read. It will be a strong willed reader indeed though, who doesn't feel compelled to read the remainder of the series.
The measure of any serial killer tale these days has to be the Hannibal Lector trilogy by Thomas Harris. If this first instalment is anything to judge by, Kay Hooper's trilogy won't fall short of the mark.
Good stuff, easy to read hard to put down.
I'VE ALWAYS LOVED BOOKS ABOUT PHYSIC'S, THEY ARE SO INTERESTING AND THIS BOOK HAS IT ALL IN SPADES.
Cassie Neill is from a long line of psychics. She keeps a low profile and assists the Los Angeles Police Department in catching killers. She does this by entering the minds of those who kill. When one such mind meld goes horribly awry, Cassie, hoping to find peace, relocates to the small, sleepy town of Ryan's Bluff in North Carolina, where her recently deceased aunt has bequeathed her a house.
Cassie succeeds in finding peace only for a short while, when she suddenly becomes aware that a killer is loose in Ryan's' Bluff, stalking its women. She doesn't know who he is, but she certainly senses him and goes to the authorities where she is met with skepticism and something else she never expected to find. Once the first body is found, Cassie becomes a suspect, until the bloodbath grows. Then Cassie becomes a valuable tool in helping to stop a madman whose only thought is to kill again, until he can get the crown jewel in his collection of murder victims, Cassie herself.
Who is doing this and why is for the reader to discover. Fairly well-written with an interesting plot, it is a very entertaining read that will keep fans of paranormal suspense turning the pages.
