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.

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.
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.
At the bottom of my list.
I read the book when it first came out & I thought the audiobook would be fun. Well it's not it just sucked.
Tony Harte comic relief
She kept pausing between sentences for at least 2 usually 3 seconds. Yes I timed it. Then her male voices all sounded the same just a very bored monotone.
Like I said one of her best stories but that narrator ruined it.
The narrator reads this book like it is a children's book. Absolutely awful.
Only with a different narrator.
It was hard to judge the merits of the book itself, because the reading was so bad. I found myself fast forwarding because it was so irritating.
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.
