Sacred Evil (Krewe of Hunters #3) Reviews
If you were like me & was disappointed in the previous book in the series, take an easy breath: this book is better. It's not as fun as the first book was, but it's still much more intriguing than Heart of Evil.
It's really hard to write a book with Ripper themes to it & not have the book be incredibly interesting. What really intrigued me about the book is how much Graham took from past events. I was surprised to know that there were a series of murders in New York that closely mirrored ...more
I am not a Ripperologist, but I have somehow always been fascinated by Jack the Ripper stories. This one is better than others I have read. And true to form, Graham delays the identity of the killer until the very end allowing readers ample time to piece together the clues which are sprinkled throughout the story.
The difficulty of having an ensemble cast of characters is giving them balanced time in the story. This does not occur. This book features Whitney as the main Krewe of Hunters member. H ...more
The Krewe of Hunters is at it again in Sacred Evil by Heather Graham. This time the Krewe is in New York working with the NYC Police Department on a series of Ripperesque style murders. The question arises is this work of a homicidal, possibly crazy, Jack the Ripper fan or are there supernatural elements at work? Whitney Tremont, one of the Krewe, is working beside Jude Crosby to make this determination. Whitney, as a Krewe member, has some paranormal abilities but will this help her in this par ...more
This is a really good addition to the Krewe of Hunters series by Heather Graham. It has everything, a spooky setting for the story, which is a movie set for a movie retelling the Jack the Ripper story and also there is romance as Whitney from the Hunters joins Detective Jude Crosby to try and find out who the real killer is before the city goes into a panic thinking the ghost of Jack the Ripper is roaming the streets. A few plot twists, some great characters make this a very good read.
4 stars ****
For me Halloween time just isnt right without a Heather Graham book for me to get cozy with. She has always been a auto-buy author for me so I dont ever read the blurb before buying cause I know I wont be disappointed.
And as usual I wasnt. This had the perfect blend of mystery, suspense, ghosts and romance to keep me wanting more.
We met Whitney in previous books in the Krewe series and I always liked her loved that she had her own story. She is sent to New York where she meets a loc ...more
What makes a movie more interesting then when a few murders on and around the shooting site a curse and the news papers says JACK THE RIPPER is back and now its up to Detective Crosby and the Krewe Team to find out just what is going on in New York.
I am officially done...with this series. These books can hardly be deemed "romantic" suspense and barely even paranormal...for one. For two...with as popular of an author as Heather Graham is, there should not be as many easily made typing errors as there are! I can't tell you how many times in the book the names of Jude, Jake and Jackson were mixed up...granted just that many J's is confusing but when a character isn't even in a scene and their name is mentioned as performing an action, is disc ...more
Following the discovery of a mutilated corpse, NYPD detective Jude Crosby is forced to admit that this murder and two previous deaths may be the work of a Jack the Ripper copycat. When a unique FBI unit specializing in the unexplained is called in, Jude must work with Agent Whitney Tremont and accept that their are some things fact and logic cannot explain including his undeniable attraction to the spunky special agent.
I originally decided to discontinue the seri ...more
