Publisher's Summary

He's no ordinary kidnapper. Not only does he strike again and again, but he collects the ransom, gets away safely, and leaves his helpless hostages dead. Now, after months of eluding the best that law enforcement can put against him, this monster has left nothing in his wake but a cold trail of unconnected victims.

He's no ordinary cop. Lucas Jordan, a key agent and profiler in Noah Bishop's Special Crimes Unit, has an extraordinary skill: he locates missing people. But his uncanny ability comes with a price, and his methods rouse mistrust in the hard-nosed cops forced to call him into their investigations.

Now Jordan has come to Clayton County, North Carolina, where the latest in a string of kidnapping victims has turned up dead. Complicating the situation is the presence - and predictions - of someone who's even more of an outsider than Jordan himself: carnival psychic Samantha Burke, a woman out of his own haunted past. Her warnings meet with skepticism from the local police but spur Jordan on to do what he does best: hunt fear.

But the killer he is hunting is hunting Jordan - and he's already several moves ahead in a twisted game whose rules Jordan must learn in order to have a fighting chance. For his psychopathic opponent has extended a very personal challenge, and he's about to threaten the one life the profiler values even more than his own.

    "Always a cliffhanger!"
    What did you love best about Hunting Fear?

    The pace of these Special Unit novels is great. There's always a surprise ending.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lucas is the brooding hero that makes the romance work.


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Dick Hill has the voice to keep one riveted.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really...I'd rather it went on forever.


    Any additional comments?

    Kay Hooper does the paranormal better than anyone else.

    "Great story, but not my favorite performance"
    Where does Hunting Fear rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Hunting Fear is the seventh Kay Hooper book I have listened to from Audible. The story was just as interesting and compelling as the previous six, but I found the production of this particular book to be less to my taste.


    Did Dick Hill do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The characters were well differentiated - but this was accomplished by giving a lot of characters accents that I personally found very distracting. I just don't think everyone needs an accent. And for a character like Bishop, who has a role in every novel, to suddenly have an accent that he never previously had, is beyond distracting. I don't want to be thinking, "why does he sound like that? what accent is that even supposed to be?" when I should just be enjoying the story.<br/><br/>Details like having the sound change when a character was talking through a phone or listening to a report on the radio were also distracting.<br/><br/>I think I prefer to imagine these things rather than having them explicitly performed for me. I had my own imagined version of Bishop and his team after six books, and this performance clashed with my version to such an extent that I was pulled out of the story by it. I think maybe the reading needs to be a little more neutral, especially when it is part of a series with recurring characters but different readers.<br/><br/>So the performance was a detraction, but even so, I really liked the story and I'm looking forward to the next one in the series.

    "Good filler book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I listened to the end but mostly because I needed to fill the time. It didn't keep me on the edge of the seat. I probably shouldn't have picked this one right after listening to Finders Keepers by Stephen King...that's a thriller!


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. His performances are consistent

    "LOVE Dick Hill"
    Would you listen to Hunting Fear again? Why?

    Dick Hill is the reason I started to listen to the BIshop FIles and I'm glad I did :)


    Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    As Always ... Excellent performance. I try to listen to every book he reads.
