Blending history with paranormal elements and making them plausible is what author Heather Graham does with her Krewe of Hunters series.
In her latest release, THE HIDDEN, the author combines history with ghosts, a touch of romance, greed, suspension, and murder for a fascinating story. Set in Colorado, the story deals with modern killers as well as events shortly after the Civil War.
Narrator Phil Gigante does an excellent job giving each character their own unique voice. Using mannerisms and just the right cadence, the emotions of the characters are related with precision enhancing the story.
With her historical knowledge and archaeology background, Scarlet Barlow goes to work telling the history of Conway Ranch. When it seems history is repeating itself in the form of murders, Scarlet calls on her ex-husband, FBI Agent Diego McCullough.
Having just been asked to join the Krewe of Hunters, an elite FBI group, Diego asks for their assistance in solving the murders surrounding the Conway Ranch. The Krewe is determined to find the killers of the modern-day murders and are happy to have the help of a few ghosts along the way.
The author creates an intriguing tale that blends romance, second chances and mystery. The roller-coaster ride of adventure in this fast-pace story will hold readers/listeners spellbound. With vivid descriptions, the author paints a beautiful setting in the Colorado mountainside. The characters are well developed and likable.
THE HIDDEN can be read/listened to on its own. However, there are several characters from previous Krewe of Hunters installments involved in the story that may cause you to want to check out THE FORGOTTEN and THE SILENCED.
