This is an exciting crime thriller with detectives that have psychic abilities. The plot had some unexpected twists and left the killer's identity hidden until near the end of the book. The methods of killing are particularly gruesome and frightening, including a timed guillotine, drowning in a tank that fills slowly and being buried alive. ( )

Hunting Fear
4 Stars

SCU member, Lucas Jordan, possesses the unique ability to sense a victim’s terror and uses it to find those who are missing. However, Lucas’s skill is put to the test when a seemingly routine case of kidnapping for ransom turns into something far more dangerous and personal.

Series Note: This is the first book in Hooper’s Fear trilogy but the seventh book in the Bishop Special Crimes Unit series. While this is the first time Lucas and his love interest, Samantha, are introduced, there are minor references to characters from previous installments.

As with the earlier books in Hooper’s SCU series, the twists and turns of the narrative and the diabolical nature of the crimes lead to a fast paced and engrossing read. The romance, however, takes a back seat to the action.

Most of the characters are fleshed out well, and it is easy to empathize and sympathize with their predicaments. Nevertheless, the hero is not as well-developed and the lack of characterization impacts the reader’s ability to follow the clues to the culprit’s identity. Likewise, Lucas's relationship with Samantha lacks foundation and background, so their conflict comes across as superficial and tiresome.

Consequently, readers expecting romance with their tension and suspense will be disappointed as this book, and the series as a whole, are firmly in the genre of paranormal mystery rather than romantic suspense. However, those interested in a solid thriller with excellent secondary characters and some gritty murders should pick it up. ( )

Suspense, suspense, suspense only exceeded by mystery,and tied up by the paranormal. Luke Jordan is the FBI/SCI agent in charge of finding and stopping a serial kidnapper.
The many twists and turns kept the pages turning until the end. Characters that are so different yet so real. Can't wait for the next in the series. ( )

A team of psychic special agents are pitted against a diabolical serial killer. The murderer has in mind a torturous ending for his victims and dares the lawmen to arrive in time to stop it. I really like Kay Hooper's "Bishop" series. Mystery, murder and special abilities all make for top-rate stories. ( )

1 of 3. Fast paced. Tightly written. Suspenseful. The start of another trilogy in the Bishop series. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0553585983, Mass Market Paperback)

There's a new psychic on the scene, and he's ready for action: introducing Lucas Jordan, the latest addition to Noah Bishop's crackerjack Special Crimes Unit.

Lucas Jordan has an extraordinary psychic skill that police all over the country find invaluable: he locates missing people. And since being recruited by Noah Bishop for his FBI Special Crimes Unit, Lucas has learned to hone his remarkable ability so that what he does seems little short of miraculous.

He's called in on what appear to be a series of ordinary kidnappings-for-ransom, but almost immediately Lucas realizes the situation is far from ordinary—and more deadly than anything he's ever faced before. Because a brilliant, twisted madman is out to win a sick game, matching his wits against the best hunter he can find: Lucas.
