Bishop series. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I don't usually read the ESP type books, but I can hardly wait to read the next one. ( )

2 of 3. Fast paced. Tightly written. Suspenseful. Think Ghost Whisperer with a lot more scare factor. The start of another trilogy in the Bishop series. ( )

I've been a fan of Kay Hooper's writing since I picked up her first book many years ago. Chill of Fear has a little less action than some of her others but, for me, it was just as good. The story centers around Diana, a woman coming to terms with her ability as a medium. There's mystery, an emerging romance and, of course, the paranormal world of ghosts and extrasensory abilities.

This is part of the ongoing Bishop/Special Crimes Unit series, though it is also broken down into the separate 'Fear' series using specific characters. Chill of Fear could be read as a stand-alone, though I would suggest reading Hunting Fear, the first in this particular subseries. ( )

Quentin Hayes and Noah Bishop are part of the FBI’s Special Crimes Unit. Members use there special “talents” to investigate the paranormal. Hayes keeps returning to an aging resort in Tennessee where a child died twenty-five years ago when he and his family were vacationing. Diana Brisco has been haunted by strange nightmares and visions most of her life so her doctor suggests she spend some time at this retreat drawing as a way to relax. Immediately things start happening. She draws a picture of Quentin whom she has never met. She sees people in period clothes. With everything that happens to her she tries to dismiss them. After all, people had told her she had mental problems like her mother which is why she had been medicated most of her life. Now drug free, she is still having nightmares and out of body experiences. Hayes helps her to face the fact that she isn’t crazy. She is a medium. She has a talent that the Special Crimes Unit can use. The ghost of a child leads her to his bones. This helps her to finally realize that maybe her father was wrong. Maybe she does have a talent. This is a creepy tale that moves along at a fast clip. The only thing missing was Diana’s father. She had called to tell him she knew nothing was wrong with her mentally, that she had found a photo with her and one of the ghosts which she now realizes was her sister. Her father tells her to stay put. He is headed to Tennessee to talk to her but there the author ends it. This loose end is never fully explained so the reader is not sure why the father kept the sister a secret, and if he had any involvement in anything that had transpired. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553585991, Mass Market Paperback)

New York Times bestselling author Kay Hooper turns up the heat even as she chills readers to the bone with a new suspense novel that distills the essence of fear itself. In this relentless thriller, two psychics put more than their lives on the line to stop a killer darker and more evil than they could ever imagine. . . .

FBI agent Quentin Hayes always knew he had an unusual talent, even before he was recruited by Noah Bishop for the controversial Special Crimes Unit. But, as gifted as he is, for twenty years he’s been haunted by a heartbreaking unsolved murder that took place at The Lodge, a secluded Victorian-era resort in Tennessee. Now he’s returned one final time, determined to put the mystery to rest.

Diana Brisco has come there hoping to unlock the mystery of her troubled past. Instead, she is assailed by nightmares and the vision of a child who vanished from The Lodge years ago. And an FBI agent is trying to convince her that she isn’t crazy but that she has a rare gift, a gift that could catch a killer.

Quentin knows that this is his last chance to solve a case that has become a dangerous obsession. But can he persuade Diana to help him, knowing what it could cost her? For something cold and dark and pure evil is stalking the grounds of The Lodge. Something Diana may not survive. Something Quentin never felt before: the chill of fear.
