Publisher's Summary

1800s. San Antonio, Texas: In room 207 at the Longhorn Saloon, in the long shadow of the Alamo itself, a woman renowned for her beauty was brutally murdered. Her killer was never found.

One year ago: In that same historic room, another woman vanished without a trace. Her blood was everywhere... but her body was never recovered. Now: In the last month, San Antonio has become a dumping ground for battered bodies. All young women, many of them long missing, almost all forgotten. Until now.

Texas Ranger Logan Raintree cannot sit by and let his city’s most vulnerable citizens be slain. So when he is approached to lead a brand-new group of elite paranormal investigators working the case, he has no choice but to accept the challenge. And with it, his powerful ability to commune with the dead. Among Logan’s new team is Kelsey O’Brien, a U.S. marshal known for her razor-sharp intuition and a toughness that belies her delicate exterior. Kelsey has been waiting all her life to work with someone who can understand her ability to “see” the past unfolding in the present. Now she has her chance.

Together, Kelsey and Logan follow their instincts to the Alamo and to the newly reopened Longhorn, which once tempted heroes with drink, cards and women. If the spirits of those long-dead Texans are really appearing to the victims before their deaths, only Kelsey and Logan have the skills to find out why. And if something more earthly is menacing the city’s oldest, darkest corners, only they can stop it - before more innocent women join the company of San Antonio’s restless ghosts....

I heart Luke Daniels!!

I have read Heather Graham in the past and this is pretty much what I remember. A decent story, a mystery that throws many suspects at you. The ghost aspect is fun and not overplayed like in other paranormal romance type books. I bought this book primarily because it's narrated by Luke Daniels and I'm a big fan of his. He could read the yellow pages and I'd listen.

First thought: I really like the new team :)

What I Thought of the Case: The Unseen is set in San Antonio, TX and as a Native Texan I had to love it! As a history buff, I loved the setting even more. It was centered around The Alamo and the history of a missing diamond. The killings were very much committed by humans but the ghosts were such a HUGE help in figuring it out. I didn't quite figure out who did the grisly murders until about half way through. It was just a guess at that point but it ended up being right. Mysteries are best when they keep you guessing :)

What I Thought of the Characters: The Unseen is the first book with a new Paranormal Investigation team. We do get to see a few characters from the original series but you could start here without missing a beat. I do like the new team almost as much as the old one. I am sure by the end of Book 4 they will be instilled in my heart. The main characters of The Unseen are Logan and Kelsey. They are both law enforcement but of different branches. Their different unique abilities work well together and I love their chemistry. Another great pairing by Heather Graham.

What I Thought of the Audio: Not to sound like a broken record but Luke Daniels did a wonderful job. I recommend this series on audio! Though if you listen to a lot of audios that he does (which I do) then you will notice some re-use of accents. Sometimes that can make you laugh because that will make cross-series characters. Let's just say having Oberon act as some of these characters is hysterical. You quickly though get back into your story with just a little grin!

Final Thought: I like this series and think most romantic mystery readers would too!

the unseen rocked

Would you listen to The Unseen again? Why?

i enjoyed it very much but probably not read it again as i remember plots and results but i do recommend the book for anyone who enjoys a bit of history with their mystery.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Unseen?

the description of the alamo and just the general history of the area

What about Luke Daniels???s performance did you like?

he brings the characters to life and no one character sounded the same

If you could take any character from The Unseen out to dinner, who would it be and why?

probably jackson crow he sounds great

Any additional comments?

just that Heather Graham writes a great book and this is diffently one of her best

Good series, good story

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Story evolves well, enjoyed the plot line over my daily commute.

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

The narrator augments the story and has been a welcome repeat performer in the series

Another Heather Graham success!

Would you listen to The Unseen again? Why?

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to The Unseen. Luke Daniels did a great job reading the characters. As a Texan, I wish his Texans sounded less like Deep South residents, and one of his female characters was more caricature, so there were brief suspensions of belief, but, overall, it was good. I've since had the opportunity to listen to a different reader of Heather Graham's work and I appreciate Luke Daniels MUCH more after that.

Great series

I love a good mystery and these books are certainly that. I can't say I didn't guess who the murderer was, it then again, I guessed almost everyone at one point or another. The narrator brought it all to life. Can't wait until I start the next one.

Too repetitive

I was so disappointed with this installment of this series. I'm not sure why the author decided to introduce a whole new set of characters when I feel there was still much more she could do with the ones we already had. I also don't understand why she keeps making damsels in distress out of the main characters.

Like all her other books there is a female character and a male character that end up getting together. So we have this long expensive annoying sex scene that just does not go with this book. I've said this in every single review so far. it almost feels like a romance novel with a little bit of supernatural and detective storyline.

It also bothers me how the men seem to look at these women like they are helpless and cannot defend themselves. In this book the woman is a marshall and yet she still the damsel in distress being saved by the man. I believe this will be the last book I read of hers for a while.

I don't like not finishing series and I also bought the next two parts. But I need a break! I read the next two books don't even have the characters that I've grown to like. It seems to me she's introducing more characters to make them hook up and end up having this happily ever after. It's sad there's so much potential here I just don't understand why she keeps doing the same thing over and over again.

Surprise!

I adore this series! I thought I had the culprit all figured out, but I was in for a Surprise! Heather Graham does an amazing job of writing about real crime while combining it with the supernatural. So entertaining. If I had my wish, Luke Daniels would read ALL my books to Me! He is mega talented and his voice makes me swoon.

Krewe of Hunters book 5

This book is number 5 in the Romance/detective/ ghost based FBI unit, The Krewe of Hunters. It sets up the establishment of a second team based in Texas.
Romance is clearly a large element of the story but there are also ghosts, murders and double crosses.
Not a challenging listen but fun none the less.
