about

Sometimes evil lingers so close, you can feel it....

Seattle police sketch artist Maggie Barnes has an extraordinary gift. She listens as traumatized crime victims describe their ordeals — and then uses those horrifying recollections to draw dead-on sketches of the assailants.

Some cops think Maggie is telepathic, that she can actually enter the victims’ minds. Only Maggie knows the truth behind her rare talent ... and she isn’t telling.

But her secret may be exposed when a madman seizes Seattle in his terrifying grip. He abducts women and blinds them, leaving them barely alive.

The police have one hope: the lone victim who might recover her sight. But they don’t know that Maggie has her own dark connection to the monster — an eerie link that may stretch back to a string of unsolved murders.

To stop the escalating terror, Maggie will have to push her abilities to the breaking point — even if it means confronting a predator whose powers seem to have no bounds....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Criminal minds with a touch of psych I love mystery and crime novels... Kay Hooper has got it. I'm a huge Patricia Cornwall and Jonathon Kellerman fan. The Bishop Special Crimes series has that perfect blend of everything that keeps me turning the page. I can't put the book down. Awesome...definite must reads!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was okay Didn't like her theology of good vs evil. Having to buy into her theology is necessary in order to like the book, but since her theology is flawed, it negatively impacted the story for me. Would have been a hood book otherwise.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Psychic read I haven't read Kay Hooper in a few years and this tale reminded me why. Maggie is back along with a score of psychic friends which in reality is a score to many. Hooper doesn't spend much time on the victims but concentrates on the police investigation and the various talents of the psychics. A light read but don't spend to much tiime on it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just love it! I don't know how many times I've read it, but this one is a must read book. It is just awesome. The suspens, the characters, the storyline... even the paranormal powers: not simply telepathy, but Kay Hooper offers something different and she can back it up with theories, so it's great. What's also interesting is that the story takes place in a few days and sex is not prominent in her books, so you are not distracted by it. I'll keep buying her FBI series as long as she writes!

I started reading her books about a two years ago and now I look forward to every new one. I have the whole collection so far from her very first novels.
