An SCU team investigates a string of accidents, only to uncover a deadly and deliberate monster in the latest novel from New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper.
In Clarity, North Carolina, the residents have fallen victim to an unfortunate series of events. Seemingly random accidents have taken the lives of several citizens in the small mountain town. But these deadly coincidences are anything but. Something is on the hunt in Clarity, and the only clue as to what is a cryptic note given to the victims 24 hours before they meet their ends: “Wait for dark.”
Sheriff Mal Gordon knows how to handle his town, but he has no idea how to handle this. Hollis Templeton and her team from the Special Crimes Unit, including her partner and lover, telepath Reese DeMarco, are called in to investigate.
But while the SCU has prepared them for the unknown, the incredible evil stalking Clarity shakes the team to their core when one of their own is targeted. Now Hollis, the “cat with nine lives” finds herself facing death again.
And this time, not even her partner can protect her… (Goodreads)
The characters are well rounded and well developed. All of the agents in the Special Crimes Unit have psychic abilities that they use when pursuing the criminals. I really enjoyed the parts of the book that dealt with these psychic abilities, which I thought could have been more. That is what makes this book special and I just wanted a little more of it. This is only my opinion and others might not feel the same way. I liked getting to revisit some characters that I met when I read previous books and getting to meet some new one.
The mystery is carried on well throughout the entire book. There were a lot of very tense moments and disturbing scenes that led to much tension and suspense. The author is very talented in creating these scenes for the reader to enjoy.
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a well crafted paranormal suspense. I have read quite a few of the books from the beginning of the series and I have enjoyed them all. If you have not read any books in this series, I would suggest you start at the beginning to see where it all started. If you have been reading the series all along this is a great new installment.
