Very good book. ( )

Meh. Maybe I'm tired of reading this series -- set in trilogies. Maybe I don't like all the "who's on first" feel. Maybe I don't like the "this is the mother of all monsters" build up to "he's so ordinary...and not the monster we're looking for." Whatever it was, I wasn't impressed by #10 in the Bishop series. Also, don't be fooled by the "romance" bookshelf. There's maybe five sentences devoted to the romance in the story. ( )

In Blood Dreams, the daughter of a US senator is kidnapped by a serial killer. Noah Bishop's FBI Special Crimes Unit is enlisted to find her. To capture this killer he has taken on the help of Dani Jacobs, who is really the main protagonist in the story. Her special skill is being able to dream of what is going to occur in the future, a pretty cool and useful skill to have. The most vivid aspects of the story are these dreams, which tend to be fairly horrific. The biggest drawback of the story is the lack of realism when it comes to defining how the serial killer operates. As I've found in many other serial killer books, despite a lack of superhuman powers, he does things that people simply can't do. They make him too omnipotent to be remotely believable. It's one of the reasons I generally don't like serial killer novels.

The writing is pretty competent and their is sufficient tension in the novel. It's not a bad read, but it's not a great novel either. If you have read other novels in the series, then you will probably want to read this one as well.

Quick read, kept me guessing throughout the story. I'm looking forward to more in that series. ( )

This killer dreams in shades of death….

In each of her New York Times bestselling novels, critically acclaimed author Kay Hooper has led readers to unforgettably chilling encounters with fear and evil. Now, in her latest thriller, she takes us on a terrifying manhunt for a serial killer no ordinary cops can stop–a psychopath who seems to step out of a living nightmare.

He’s the kind of killer we instinctively fear the most. A killer without boundaries, without conscience, without any fear of being caught. And his latest victim is terrifying proof that no one is safe: the daughter of a powerful U.S. senator.

Now, with the national media calling for justice and a grief-stricken father seeking vengeance, Bishop and his FBI Special Crimes Unit find themselves in a unique situation. This time even psychic cops aren’t enough to stop evil. Aid comes in the form of a fledgling civilian organization of unorthodox crime stoppers. Operating outside of any government oversight, without sanction or official authority, they are comprised of a membership every bit as talented and eccentric as Bishop’s SCU–if not more so. And that is no coincidence. For Bishop helped launch this organization barely two years before.

Dani Justice knows all about monsters. They haunt her nightmares–and her life. But she never expected to find herself doggedly on the trail of a real flesh-and-blood predator so cunning, he’s eluded the best law enforcement could send up against him; so deadly, he doesn’t hesitate to kill even a senator’s daughter. Or a cop.

Dani doesn’t want to hunt this killer. She doesn’t want to risk the life she’s made for herself, or her hard-won peace. But she doesn’t have a choice. Because his bloody rampage has hit far too close to home. Because Dani alone commands a weapon powerful enough to destroy him.
And because Dani knows something even Bishop doesn’t. Dani knows how the hunt ends. It ends in fire. And blood. And death.

What she doesn’t know is who will survive.
