Kay Hooper’s flair for storytelling and her broad mastery of genre are apparent in her electrifying novels. Her many works include modern and historical romances, fantasies, mysteries, gothic novels, and, like Out of the Shadows, suspense thrillers featuring psychic ability.
The small, friendly town of Gladstone, Tennessee seems the ideal place to raise a family - until two teenagers are found tortured to death. Sheriff Miranda Knight will do anything to make her small town safe again, even if it means calling in Noah Bishop, the FBI’s psychic profiler. The last time she and Noah combined their psychic powers, she was almost destroyed. Now she must learn to trust him again, or she will most certainly die at the hands of the monster who’s stalking her town.
Narrator C.J. Critt breathes life into the beautiful psychic sheriff with paranormal powers and transforms this exciting blend of romance, mystery, and suspense into an exciting listening experience.

The performance was so bad I couldn't even make it through chapter one. Seriously, what was up with those 4-5 second gaps between sentences, I know that doesn't seem like a long pause, but it felt way too long to me, and they weren't at all natural, which made it worse-it was so annoying. Also, Critt read this story way too tentatively-as if she were reading it to a small child or something, and not the adults I imagine the book was written for. I love Kay Hooper-and Out of The Shadows is one of my favorites, but the narration is terrible.
The end of it. The narrator was just horrible.
Bishop coming up over the hill into Gladstone. Makes me smile.
Not if i can help it.
The interplay among Bishop's team is always good. These books (despite their usually depressing subject matter) usually make me smile.
I am an entertainer...so I spend a lot of time on the road. I take my audio seriously. I appreciate great writing and outstanding narration.
I am a very cheap person. I start the review with this revelation because I want you to KNOW that I have only walked away from handful of the books I've purchased.
Out of the Shadows is one of them.
It reads like it was written by a high school student. The style is clumsy and uneven and the plot is clunky, creaky and trite -- all at the same time.
IF you find "It was a dark and stormy night" to be a sample of high literature...this is the one for you.
A terrible waste of a credit.
I will be honest. Hooper's romances left me bored. Reading her paranormal thrillers left me stoked and looking for more. Always a good read.
Love fantasy books, usually with a strong female character. I also enjoyed just about anything from J.D Robb I am a fan of mysteries as well. I also enjoy funny and quirky novels anything from Molly Harper is a winner in my book. Since listening to audio books is important to me while I travel I also follow certain narrators as well.
The end while unbelievable at least keeps the series going. Didnt expect the killer to be who it turned out to be which made the suspension grow.
