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.
American Romance novelist, Kay Hooper envisioned her career a bit differently when she was younger. She was born in California, but her family quickly moved back to their home state of North Carolina after her birth. Her father was stationed in a California Air Force Base when she was born. In her family of five, she was the oldest child. Her original thought was to take business classes at a community college, but quickly decided that business did not do anything for her interests. After enrolling in some history and literature classes, her focus turned to writing. Her first novel was purchased by Dell Publishing, entitled Lady Thief. Her mother became her personal assistant, and Hooper has had more than 60 novels published. After her mother's death in 2002, her sister Linda became her business manager, publicist, and events coordinator.
Kay Hooper lives the small town life in North Carolina, where she fosters cats and kittens for the local rescue organization. Her family lives close by, and she has many cats and a couple of dogs. She has Kay's Pets Page for readers to view her pet family.
This book might have been enjoyable with a better reader but Kathy Garver is no Susan Erickson reader for author J D Robb and I couldnt get past the first few chapters. I returned the book without completing it.
