Wait for Dark

In the early 2000s, I discovered the work of author Kay Hooper. I was especially drawn to her books featuring Special Agent Noah Bishop and his team of FBI agents with psychic abilities. Over the course of a few years, I read six or seven of those books and loved them all. Then, as so often happens, ...

Sleeping with Fear

I had not read a Kay Hooper novel in many years. I was not familiar with her Bishop/Special Crime Unit series. The suspense in Sleeping with Fear was written strongly and effectively, but the story wasn't otherwise as well-rounded as I would have liked. The novel opens with a bang: Riley Crane ...

Sense of Evil

I'm hooked on Kay Hooper's psychic series. The concept is such an interesting one, and it's a twist on romantic suspense that sets her apart from most other suspense authors. Her latest entry, this time in hardback, is another consistent entry in the series. A serial killer is after women in t ...

Always a Thief

In Always A Thief, Kay Hooper's prose seems to be coated with Teflon. I found my eyes gliding over the words at a breakneck speed, and in the end, almost none of them stuck. While the story zips along amiably enough, by the end the most suspenseful question was whether the plot or the characters wou ...

Whisper of Evil

Whisper of Evil is the second in Kay Hooper's Evil trilogy, the first being Touching Evil. Both of these books are also loosely tied to the Shadows trilogy. The common link is the involvement of a special FBI team, headed by Noah Bishop and made up of agents with various types of psychic skills. ...

Before reading Touching Evil make sure to turn on the lights and lock the doors, because Hooper has created a story with a mood of terror that will seep into your very bones. Maggie Barnes is a sketch artist for the Seattle police department. She has a special empathic skill that allows her to ...

Out of the Shadows

Kay Hooper concludes her psychic suspense trilogy with a bang. This final installment features the one character who's appeared in both previous titles - FBI agent Noah Bishop. Noah, of course, gets his man, but this time he gets his lady, too. Miranda Knight serves as sheriff in a small Tenne ...

Hiding in the Shadows

I can't believe I waited this long to read something by Kay Hooper! This is the best suspense story I've read lately, with a good psychological twist at the end that's as surprising as the one in the movie The Sixth Sense. It may make some readers unhappy, though. Dinah Leighton is an investig ...

Stealing Shadows

Stop me if you've heard this one before - a female psychic works with skeptical but desperate police to catch a serial killer, who may be targeting the psychic herself. Meanwhile, the psychic and one of the law enforcement guys fall in love. Yeah, I thought it sounded like any number of other books, ...

Haunting Rachel

Although I have never read anything by Kay Hooper before, I have heard some good things about her over the years. After reading Haunting Rachel, I am ready to add my voice to the chorus; if you like romantic suspense, this one is not to be missed. This was almost a one-sitting read for me, because a ...
