Fear has never been so close.…

New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper returns with a relentless thriller that brings her readers face-to-face with fear itself. In this terrifying new novel, a psychic special agent finds herself caught up in a tangled web of secrets, lies . . . and evil.

Riley Crane woke up fully dressed, a gun under her pillow, and covered in blood. Even more frightening, she didn’t remember what happened the night before. In fact, she barely remembered the previous three weeks.

An ex—army officer, now a federal agent assigned to the Special Crimes Unit, Riley was a chameleon–a clairvoyant who could blend in with her surroundings, be anyone or anything she chose to be. The SCU’s expert on the occult, she’d been sent to the beachfront cottage on Opal Island by her enigmatic chief, Noah Bishop, to investigate reports of dangerous occult activity.

But that was three weeks ago. Now she’s awoken to discover that she’s got a sexy new man in her life and an unreliable memory, and that the clairvoyant abilities she’s always depended on to protect her are MIA. Worse yet, with SCU resources stretched thinner than ever before, Riley is alone and without backup, feeling her way through a deadly game of blindman’s buff, where no one around her is quite who or what they seem. And a bizarre murder is only the first jarring reminder of how high the stakes really are.

Bishop wants Riley off the case. So does powerful local D.A. Ash Prescott. Both her old retired army buddy Gordon Skinner and Sheriff Jake Ballard believe she can catch a vicious killer. But one of these four men knows exactly what’s going on in this coastal community, and that’s knowledge Riley desperately needs. For what Riley can’t remember is more than enough to cost her her life. This time evil isn’t just closer than she thinks–it’s already there.

My first time reading a Kay Hooper story. Really enjoyed the seeing the lead character try to find her way through the memory loss that was clouding her investigation. The end was a real surprise and was so glad I didn't read it like I sometimes do!

I mostly enjoy the Bishop/Special Crimes Unit series, but this one was just a bit on the "too much" side. Hooper has a tendency to overwrite her characters and plots, turning a perfectly good recipe into something too heavy and difficult to digest. When she sticks to the basics, her books are quite entertaining, but when she starts adding unnecessary bells and whistles, the books become heavy and even difficult to finish

My first Kay Hooper book, and I’ll be looking for more. A really enjoyable to read! I sunk into this one, and felt the confusion and the anxiety of the heroine. Great plot twists, with a good mix of psychic stuff and mystery.
