A young woman dies in a fiery car accident, a farmer is mangled to shreds by his harvester, a family barbecue ends in a deadly explosion and a young woman die days before her wedding. Horror movie much!!

I’m not one to read books with too much romance, luckily this is not the case, because with Kay Hooper’s Bishop/Special Crimes Unit novels (I have read them all by the way) they mostly deal with nasty serial killers and a nice big slice of psychic and paranormal elements to set your mind to wonder what if humans could possess such abilities. I totally wish I was a telepath with precognitive abilities (so cool).

She has become one of my favorite authors, she is without a doubt a master of suspense and the paranormal. Love it!

These novels follow Noah Bishop, Unit Chief, a very powerful telepath with a precognitive ability and his FBI team, called the Special Crimes Unit, for obvious reasons – they all have a unique gift.

Two of my favorite characters within these books are Hollis Templeton – a medium (always developing new abilities) and Reese DeMarco her partner (soon to be lover) a telepath. I love that Hollis is so blunt and sarcastic, brave and fearless.

Hollis and Reese have been in many of the books and she is the lead in this latest novel. On this new case, we meet two new agents, Cullen and Kirby.

I’ve been rooting for Hollis and Reese to be together for a long time. I won’t spoil what happens.

In this latest Bishop/Special Crimes Unit novel. FBI and Special Crimes Unit Agent Hollis Templeton is at the center of the action, even while recovering from a previous case that left her gravely injured.

In Clarity, NC, several deadly accidents have occurred and Sheriff Mal Gordon begins to suspect they are not accidents at all, for with each deadly incident the same text is found on the victim’s phone – Wait for Dark.

This is where Bishop sends medium Hollis Templeton and her telepathic partner Reese DeMarco to investigate after receiving a call from Sheriff Mal Gordon. Upon their arrival, a new victim is discovered, only this time the killer decides not to disguise the murder as an accident.

I do have to say though, that there was way too much talking in this one, but as usual Hollis’s sarcasm and humor kept me going. A great read overall.

If you have never read any books in this series, you can jump in here without a problem. Kay Hooper gives plenty of backstories for readers to understand how the unit operates and who the characters are.
