about

A woman with extraordinary abilities is drawn into a shocking conspiracy in the first thriller in the Bishop Files series—from the New York Times bestselling author of the Bishop/SCU novels.

Within the FBI, there exists a team of psychics whose powers cannot be denied. But these agents are feared—by a cabal of conspirators with only one weapon: to blind the psychics to the evils all around them.

Months ago Sarah Gallagher woke from a coma with psychic abilities she couldn’t control. They changed her life and cost her the man she loved. And now, someone is playing games with Sarah’s mind.

It begins with Sarah’s home being destroyed by fire—an act of arson that draws novelist Tucker Mackenzie into Sarah’s confidence. But he has other reasons for pursuing a woman who can see what others can’t. So does a mysterious enemy intent on eliminating Sarah, and everyone she cares about. Because it’s only a matter of time before her visions lead her and Tucker to a secret many will kill to hide...

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Out of sync with the Bishop series If you love the Bishop series then this book may not be for you. The pace is completely off, the plot slow and sluggish and the characters take forever to develop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not great This book was good however Bishop and his team were not as prominent as they were in Hooper's last set of novels. If you are not expecting another Bishop book, it is a good read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The First Prophet Very good book. Looks like another great series for Hooper - lots of unanswered questions will keep readers coming back for more.

STORY DESCRIPTION: Jove|November 27, 2012|Mass Market Paperbound|ISBN: 978-0-515-15288-3 Within the FBI, there exists a team of psychics whose powers cannot be denied. But these agents are feared-by a cabal of conspirators with only one weapon: to blind the psychics to the evils all around them. Months ago, Sarah Gallagher woke from a coma with psychic abilities she couldn’t control. They changed her life and cost her the man she loved. And now, someone is playing games with Sarah’s mind. It begins with Sarah’s home being destroyed by fire – an act of arson that draws novelist Tucker Mackenzie into Sarah’s confidence. But he has other reasons for pursuing the woman who can see what others can’t. So does a mysterious enemy intent on eliminating Sarah, and everyone she cares about. Because it’s only a matter of time before her visions lead her and Tucker to a secret many will kill to hide. Only then will they begin to discover the scope of a terrifying conspiracy so deep and complex they can trust almost no one. MY REVIEW: I must begin by saying that I was a tad confused and a tad miffed at the way in which Ms. Hooper chose to approach this novel. There appeared to be ‘endless set-up’ for the story but very little of the story itself. It didn’t really have the “feel” of a true Bishop novel. I also didn’t like the way in which the book began - the Prologue. I personally believe that a first time reader of this particular Bishop novel may find themselves not wanting to continue on with the upcoming second novel in this “new” Bishop series. I was just taken aback and it just didn’t seem like the good ol’ Kay we’ve all come to know and love. I’ve been a huge, huge fan of the Bishop SCU series forever but this newest series just didn’t cut it for me. However, once passed all the set-up and getting more into the substance of the actual story, I finally began to settle down and was able to complete the book. A bit disappointing to say the least.
