Publisher's Summary

The Old West town of Lily, Arizona, is home to the Gilded Lily, a former theater…and bawdy house. These days, it offers theatrical productions geared to tourists, but the recent discovery of a skull, a real skull, among the props and costumes shakes everyone up. So, who do you call? The Krewe of Hunters, a special FBI unit of paranormal investigators. In this case, it’s agent Jane Everett. Jane’s also a talented artist who creates images of the dead as they once were. But the Krewe always works with local law enforcement, and here that means Sloan Trent, former Houston cop and now sheriff. His great-great-grandmother was an actress at the Gilded Lily…and she’s not resting in peace. Then more remains appear in the nearby desert. As they search for answers, using all the skills at their disposal, Jane and Sloan find themselves falling into danger — and into love.

Luke Daniels

Luke Daniels seems to get better and better with each book he narrates. He really bring the words alive. I'm truly in love with this series of books and I can't stop thanking my co-worker for turning me onto Hesther Graham and her Krewe of Hunters.

Waste of time

I've heard practically all of the books in these series, and this one was one of the worst! The story was horrible and the narration could have been better.
The story wasn't interesting or gripping. I forced myself to finish the book whereas some other books in this series were so addictive that I just couldn't stop listening.
Luke Daniels voice for Jane was so so so bad! He made her sound like a 70 year old grandma! The way she was described and the way she sounds couldn't be more off.
I would tell listeners to move on and not waste their money/credit on this audio book. Not worth it at all!

Good book but...

This is my third Krewe of Hunters audio book (I have the entire series as e-books, however) and the third with Luke Daniels as the narrator. As usual, the book is great; Heather Graham really knows how to tell a story and I've come to enjoy Mr. Daniels' narration but not so much this time around. When he did the voices for the main characters, Sloane and Jane, he spoke so quietly, I had to strain to hear. The voices he did for some of the female characters (and the theatre owner) were so whiny or over the top that I caught myself rolling my eyes a few times. As I said, I own the whole series but this was one book I hadn't read yet so my enjoyment was a bit diminished by his narration. I was disappointed by that since he's been so good with the others. Hopefully this was a fluke since he does the narration for a lot of the other Krewe books. Still, it was a good story with a nice twist at the end.

Ghostly

Any additional comments?

The narrator hurt this book for me more than usual. He was very good on the male voices and some of the female voices. But he portrayed the majority of the females as hysterical non stop talkers - when there were times they should have least been portrayed as indignant or cunning. <br/>The story line was good - what I've come to expect from Graham and I'll continue with her books. I enjoyed the book and listened as often as I could to get to the end. The ending could have been a little more solid but I don't hold that against the storyline.

a bit disappointing

What did you like best about The Night Is Watching? What did you like least?

Will finish the book even though it will be a struggle and because I have listened to all the previous books.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Jane is not a grandmother, but she sounds like one. As well as most of the other women. Usually Luke Daniels does a better job. He has narrated all but one of the krewe novels, but after this one I'm thinking he wants to get fired from doing them. Since he has done so many, it would have been nice if he could have remembered the voice he used for that person in a previous book.

Not my favorite. . .

I like the Krewe of Hunters books. They are the same book, that is to say - there is a formula to all of the Krewe books; historic building, ghosts, bad guys and a love story. Nothing wrong with that, it's nice to have an idea of what you're going to get before you listen. This one was all over the place. It felt really rushed, and because of that it didn't make much sense. The ending was so abrupt, I think I got whiplash.
Luke Daniels is one of my favorite narrators but he didn't have much to work with here. I could hear the difference in each characters voice, and Jane, Kelsey and Logan all sound the same from previous books. However, the rest of the characters (with the exception of Johnny Bearclaw and Longman) have no discernible ethnicity and no accents, so there was no real place for him to shine. All in all, kind of a let down.

A little dissapointed

What made the experience of listening to The Night Is Watching the most enjoyable?

The story was good, just like Heather Graham's other work.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Night Is Watching?

The mannequin room.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Luke Daniels?

Not sure, but this narrator made the characters cartoon-ish. The eerie quality was replaced with tongue in cheek.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No

Any additional comments?

I wished I had read this instead of listened to it.

A Great Series

While this wasn't my favourite book from the series it was still very entertaining and I am eagerly anticipating more instalments.

While Luke Daniels remains one of my favourite narrators and there was nothing wrong with his character portrayal I felt the narration was a little like he was reading from a Dick Tracy comic strip. Slightly disappointing and not his usual best.

not the best

I have enjoyed most of the Krew of Hunters series but this story is a little wooden.
The characters are predictable and do not really emgage.
read if you are a fan but try a different story if you are new. to this series. Some of them are very good.
