SYNOPSIS:

Buried alive....

As a teenager, Vickie Preston survived an attack by a serial killer. That was the first time she saw a ghost. Now the city of Boston is being terrorized - someone is kidnapping women and burying them alive, but cruelly leaving a glimmer of hope for the authorities by sending a clue about their location. Vickie is pulled into the investigation when her name is mentioned in one of the notes. And as a historian, she has the knowledge to help uncover the graves the killer known as the Undertaker is choosing. But she also has another, unique lead: the spirit of one of the victims is appearing to her in dreams.
Special Agent Griffin Price is on the case for the Krewe of Hunters, the FBI's special unit for paranormal investigators. He feels particularly protective of Vickie, since their shared past is connected to the threat that currently surrounds them. With the killer accelerating his plans, time is running out for more victims hidden around the city. Vickie is becoming closer with Griffin, but she's getting too close to the danger, and every breath could be her last.


Boston and its history makes it a perfect setting for author Heather Graham’s Krewe of Hunters series to visit.

Narrator Luke Daniels does an excellent job giving the characters their own distinct voice. His mannerisms and timing is spot on. His vocals emphasize the emotions and tension of the story giving it depth.

Graham has a unique way of bringing history to life using ghosts to help guide the story along. She weaves historical places, events, and people throughout the story making it more realistic. Her eye for details places the listener/reader in the middle of the action and makes you feel you’re actually visiting Boston.

The story moves at a steady pace holding your attention from beginning to end. The twists and turns will keep you guessing as you try to figure out the end game.

Familiar characters are brought back to work with new ones. Returning fans can catch up with old favorites, while new readers/listeners begin their journey without being left in the dark.

If you like stories that have everything wrapped up in the end, this one doesn’t fall into that category. It whets your appetite for the next adventure just as this one ends.
