An ex-army officer, now a federal agent assigned to the Special Crimes Unit, Riley was a chameleon - a clairvoyant who could blend in with her surroundings, be anyone or anything she chose to be. The SCU's expert on the occult, she'd been sent to the beachfront cottage on Opal Island by her enigmatic chief, Noah Bishop, to investigate reports of dangerous occult activity.
But that was three weeks ago. Now she's awoken to discover that she's got a sexy new man in her life and an unreliable memory, and that the clairvoyant abilities she's always depended on to protect her are MIA. Worse yet, with SCU resources stretched thinner than ever before, Riley is alone and without backup, feeling her way through a deadly game of blindman's buff, where no one around her is quite who or what they seem. And a bizarre murder is only the first jarring reminder of how high the stakes really are.
Bishop wants Riley off the case. So does powerful local D.A. Ash Prescott. Both her old retired army buddy Gordon Skinner and Sheriff Jake Ballard believe she can catch a vicious killer. But one of these four men knows exactly what's going on in this coastal community, and that's knowledge Riley desperately needs. For what Riley can't remember is more than enough to cost her her life. This time evil isn't just closer than she thinks - it's already there.

I usually like all Harper's stories but this one was very weak. I also DID NOT like the narrator. I did not like her voices of the characters especially. Bad accents.
I also really did not like the addition of the music at the conclusion of some of the chapters. Very cheesy.
I am so dissapoimnted in the narration I could scream. the theatrical sound effects made the read like a kids book. As a fan. never allow this narrator or style of narration again..
The story may have been ok, but the reader is TERRIBLE! She is stale and makes it hard to even listen to the story. Sad to see that happen this late in a series.
Not impressed w/the storyline. narration was horrible. Not on my favorite list from Bishop series
As with all Kay Hooper books the story was good and I didn't have any idea until the end who it was.
It was a surprise to finally learn who the bad "guy" was.
I didn't care for Kathy's performance. She pronounced everything too perfectly and it seemed stiff.
I really like the series and will continue to listen to the rest of the series but I'm hoping that the narrator changes as I found her distracting and lacking the depth found in the previous books
There weren't any that I can recall. Overall, it was just an average book.
For the most part. There were several occasions that left me a little confused because I wasn't sure which male character was talking, but overall was ok.
No. I didn't find it as engaging as the previous trilogy with the male narrator. Not sure if that was a result of the storyline or the telling.
The most annoying thing about the audio book is the narrator's use of A-W-O-L instead of just saying "ay-wall" like any normal person would do. It's used quite a few times throughout the book and it just makes the narration seem stilted and unnatural. It drives me crazy.
