Alaska - the final frontier?
When Clara Avery, an entertainer working on the Fate, an Alaskan cruise ship, goes to nearby Bear Island, she comes across a scene of bloody mayhem. She also comes across Thor Erikson, who will soon be a member of the FBI's elite paranormal unit, the Krewe of Hunters.
Thor's been sent from the Alaska field office to investigate several grotesque killings, with the dead posed to resemble the victims of notorious murderers. The prime suspect is a serial killer Thor once put behind bars. The man escaped from a prison in the Midwest, and all the evidence says he was headed to Alaska.
Thor and Clara share an unusual skill: the ability to communicate with the dead. Their growing love - and their contact with the ghosts of the victims - brings them together to solve the case...and prevent a deadly fate of their own!

I've been following this series and feel I'm invested but have not liked many of the last 8 or 9 books. I live in Alaska so it was a no-brainer to get this one, but geez...the dialogue was...who wrote this?
I have most of this series and some from before the Krewe and they were good.
In this book, after two days, who says, "I will protect you with my last breath?" PHALEEEZ.
I did not like the female lead, smart mouth, again, dialogue. She was a so so character in the last book. Definitely did not deserve her own book.
The author obviously is not into writing any more of these, it's as though her publisher is pushing deadlines at her. I think I'm done, though. If I need a Krewe "fix" I'll listen to some of the older ones, The Unholy, The Uninvited, The Unspoken. Reminding myself of the effort Ms. Graham put into those books, I feel I wasted my money on this book.
